When I first began recording these podcasts/videocasts way back in 2007, I decided to compile a wish-list of persons that I would one day like to interview.

Jancis Robinson (Master of Wine) was at the very top of that list.

Not only was she at the top of that list due to my great respect for her admirable body of work, but also she took the number one spot because of her distinctive charm and wit, something that can be found throughout everything she puts her mind to.

Whilst in London for Wines of South Africa‘s Cape Wine Europe tasting I was utterly delighted to receive a message (via GFR’s Zoltan Szabo) that Jancis would be able to take a little time out of her busy schedule to meet for a glass of wine and a chat at the Fortum and Mason Wine Bar.

Edinburgh-born/Toronto-based Sommelier, consultant, writer, judge, and educator Jamie Drummond is the Director of Programs/Editor of Good Food Revolution… and he was perhaps just a little starstruck upon this occasion.
