The Morning Claret

Simon J Woolf & Friends on Wild and Wonderful Wines

Day: 21 August 2015

S imon has been a member of CWW for less than two years, but being not a person to sit on the sidelines he is already a committee member and the circle’s webmaster. English, but currently based in Amsterdam, he lives a double life with an IT job that pays a few more bills than his wine writing work does, I imagine. As most who have started to write about wine within the past decade, Simon began writing about wine online, with his own blog that he started in 2011 when he was living in London. Within a couple of years he was writing for and and was shortlisted for the Louis Roederer Emerging Wine Writer of the Year 2013. He now writes in print too, for Decanter.
