About Spittoon


I write – about wine mainly (tasting notes, food and wine matching, vineyard visits and so on) and take photographs of the same. There is also the occasional cocktail, beer or bar review and the odd restaurant review. Add in a sprinkling of food (that, when made by me, is enthusiastically described as ‘rustic’, certainly not dainty) and plenty of related travel pieces. Spittoon has been around since 2004 and has led, over the years, to various writing gigs (online for AOL, Guardian Word of Mouth, Via Michelin). There is also the off-line work providing website content, shop tasting notes and book chapters in the likes of Wine Opus. Add in membership of the Circle of Wine Writers [CWW Facebook Page] and hold the WSET Diploma.

While not trampling around the fields around my South Oxfordshire home you may find me, champagne in hand, on a train travelling to some exotic destination around Europe. I’ll probably fly home…
