For today's Throwback Thursday I'm shining a spotlight on part of our Where to find us section, always to be found via the About us tab at the bottom of every single page on the site (along with our bios, the story of JancisRobinson.com, what media and visitors say about this site, our code of ethics and some photos). The photo shown here of Julia and me was taken at The Greek Larder in King's Cross when we were discussing the Greek Wine Festival listed below.

This is because we're involved in and/or organising so many events over the next few months in both the UK and US, largely in tandem with the publication on 17 September of a brand new fourth edition of The Oxford Companion to Wine. See lots more about this dramatically revised new edition, including how to order it, here.
