Hello and welcome

Hi, I'm Carrie, an aspiring oenophile studying for Wines & Spirits Education Trust advanced qualifications, with a particular passion for Champagne, English Sparkling Wine and all things bubbly from all over the world. I also love fine dining - when I get the chance.

This blog is dedicated to my experiences in search of excellent wine, occasionally paired with great food and good company, whether in the vineyard, tasting room, independent or specialist wine shop, blind tasting at awards or, in the era of Covid-19, online.

Please click on "More" to see additional blog pages and do please sign my guestbook.
