The Definitive List of UK Wine Bloggers

By In Articles

The definitive list of UK wine bloggers – no ratings, rankings or popularity scores, just a simple list of those who blog predominately about wine in its various forms.

One non-UK based blog is intentionally in the list due to their growing influence and rapport with the UK wine trade, their marvellous work in promoting social media in the wine field and organising the European Wine Bloggers conference.

Just following half of those listed will give an excellent overview of the UK wine scene – what’s hot, what’s chilling, what’s good down the supermarket…

It would be great for a comment or email altering me to any I have missed, as I am certain to have done. The only criteria is that the blog must be predominantly about wine (sorry Douglas) and be based in the UK or write about the UK wine scene. Each authors twitter tag is also listed.

These are personal blogs only. I’ll look into compiling a list of retailer blogs and winery blogs if there is enough interest and people send me their details.

    Peter, how on earth I could have missed you off the list! Sorry about that… and Nick’s blog will be first on the list of the retailers!

  4. Colin Smith April 27, 2010

    I’d be happy for you to add me…………..

  5. The Winesleuth May 1, 2010

    Why, thank you Andrew! I feel honoured to be in such esteemed company AND there are a few other chick wine bloggers on the list. Great to see! Thanks for the comment on the videos, when are you going to feature in one of mine?

  6. wine_scribbler May 1, 2010

    Didn’t someone once say you either have a face for radio or a voice for TV? I don’t have either

  7. Douglas May 10, 2010

    I’ve just written a wine themed post. Does that mean I qualify, please?

  8. Ian Griffith May 27, 2010

    You might include Peter Wood at thetastingnote.com for some flavor north of the border.

  9. Thanks Andrew. Came across this post on Miss Bouquet’s blog.
    I’ve been trying to keep a “comprehensive” list of UK blogs up to date for a while on my site. I’ve got over 70 now (quite a shock when I counted them) covering lots of different categories. If you come across any new ones do let me know ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Quentin Sadler May 29, 2010

    I am disappointed that you missed me out! I am proud of my content and work hard at it and am not selling anything – care to set the record straight?
    Thanks, Quentin Sadler

  11. Katrina Percy May 30, 2010

    I’m new so please go easy on me, my blog is simply a diary of my learning.

  12. David Derbyshire May 30, 2010

    Hi Andrew
    I would love to be included in your list. I’m a UK wine blogger – perhaps not the most regular, but I am passionate about the subject and keen to get more into it. I’m even thinking of going to Vienna in October for EWBC (if I can get a psss from the OH!)
    Cheers and keep up the great work – always enjoy your posts.

  13. wine_scribbler May 30, 2010

    Happy to add you David. See you in Vienna!

  14. Anthony Rose June 1, 2010

    I hope you will consider my blog for any future such lists. Thanks. Anthony

    Hi Andrew
    I picked up on this in the blog at http://www.vinography.com and agree that there’s been an ambivalence towards being defined as a blogger among the UK wine writing community. Myself included until last summer! I was persuaded to blog after I met Ryan and Gabriella Opaz of Catavino and revamped my long overdue for a revamp static 10 page website at http://www.thewinedetective.co.uk. And I’m enjoying the creativity of blogging so much that I’m about to revamp it again to make the blog more prominent, which is why you may have missed it! (My website is also home to in depth regional reports pages on my areas of focus: Australia, the Loire, Portugal & S Africa). Sarah Ahmed, The Wine Detective

  16. Andrew June 1, 2010

    Sarah and Anthony – a pleasure to add you both; those Catavino fellas have a lot to answer for ๐Ÿ˜‰

  17. Gavino June 2, 2010

    Thanks Andrew
    I’ve just launched a new version of my blog – it’s still full of irreverent wine nonsense but it looks a whole lot nicer.

  18. Neil "Monty"Phillips June 4, 2010

    Hi Andrew,
    Great stuff and thank you very much. By the way Monty is my nickname, which I have had since I was ten.
    I recently took part in an interview on Radio Oxford about my journey from punk to pinot!I’m a huge music fan.
    People are tracking the whole blogging community at increasing rates and your list has been widely circulated.
    Cheers Neil Phillips a.k.a. Monty Phillips The Wine Tipster.

  19. wine_scribbler June 5, 2010

    The list is a work in progress, a couple have been deleted (due to moving over seas or having not been updated for a few months) and several have been added. I’m sure there must be a few more to add…
    Glad people have found it useful.

  20. vinosambiz June 11, 2010

    Hi, I’ve been blogging about the day-to-day activities related to my wine project for over a year now (organic vineyard, winery, etc). The only thing is, is that I’m based in Spain!!! but I’m a British citizen, dammit! so please include me in your list ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Jim Budd October 17, 2010

    Can’t see Tim Atkin on the list:
    but then Tim is quiet, unassuming but I think may well have talent if encouraged…
    Apologies if he is there and I’ve missed him.

  22. Richard Saxton March 31, 2011

    Hi, thanks for including me! Could you please make the link my shiny new website: http://www.thegrapedcrusader.co.uk

  23. The Sediment Blog May 20, 2011

    Over a year on, but… if you update the list, we hope we’ve earnt a place!

  24. Tom Lewis June 13, 2011
