A former winner of both the UK’s young wine writer of the year and the Louis Roederer emerging wine writer, Rebecca’s first book The Wines of New Zealand was published in 2018 as part of the recently revived Classic Wine Library Series.

She also runs wine events and has a consultancy business The Drinks Project.

When she is not working, Rebecca enjoys running, playing the cello and watching darts.
