She divides her time between London and Chinaillon-Le Grand Bornand, a mountain ski and summer resort in the Haute Savoie department of France. After starting her career in the Wine Trade, in the past 20 years Wink has worked as an independent writer, editor and educator. A specialist of Savoie and Jura wines from 2004-2009 she wrote for Tom Stevenson's annual guide Wine Report, and she is a contributor to Oz Clarke's annual Pocket Wine Book, to Jancis Robinson’s The Oxford Companion to Wine and to Opus Vinum (The Wine Opus).

In 2012 Wink launched a blog on the Jura in preparation for self-publishing a book on Jura Wine in 2014. Wink is a keen presenter of wine tastings to wine clubs and corporate groups, and especially enjoys presenting wines from South America, another passion.
