Wink Lorch

Wink is a writer and educator on wine, and is the owner and editor of Wine Travel Guides. She divides her time between London and a mountain ski and summer resort in the Haute Savoie department of France. Her book Jura Wine, the first on the region in English, was self-published to great acclaim in March 2014. After starting her career in the Wine Trade, in the past 25 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). Wink also contributed eight wines on Jura and Savoie to 1001 Wines: You Must Try Before You Die published in 2008 and has written for World of Fine Wine, Sommelier Journal, VinCE and Decanter among other international publications. Wink is a keen presenter of wine tastings to wine clubs and corporate groups, and especially enjoys presenting wines from South America, another passion. Wink is a member of the Circle of Wine Writers, and a founder member and former chairman of the Association of Wine Educators in the UK. When not working, eating or tasting/drinking wine, Wink indulges in skiing, mountain walking or listening to jazz and blues. Wink has a blog on the wines of the Jura and more details about her can be found at her personal site Wine Travel Media.
