DWWA 2013 Spain Judging Panel
Sarah Jane Evans MW started drinking Spanish wine – Sherry to be specific – as a student of Classics and Social and Political Sciences at Cambridge. This started a lifelong love affair for Sarah Jane with the country’s wines, food and culture, leading to her appointment as a member of the Gran Orden de Caballeros de Vino for services to Spanish wine. In 2006 she became a Master of Wine, writing her dissertation on Sherry and winning the Robert Mondavi Winery Award. She is currently Deputy Vice Chairman of the Institute of Masters of Wine, also dividing her time between contributing to leading reference books, judging wines internationally and writing about wine, fine chocolate, coffee, tea and cheese.
