  • Tuesday 24 February 2009

The Sunday Times wine columnist Joanna Simon has left the newspaper after 22 years.

Simon will stop writing her column at the end of March, but will continue writing cookery articles for the newspaper’s Style magazine.

It is thought the Sunday Times is bringing its columns in-house in an attempt to cut costs.

Simon expressed sadness at her departure but added ‘it was good while it lasted’.

She told decanter.com the highlight of her time with newspaper was the publication of the Sunday Times Book of Wine in 2001.

She will continue to write for publications including Decanter, Classic FM, Waitrose Food Illustrated and for the online publication The Wine Gang, which she helped launch.
