I started this website in 2010 when a friend suggested that instead of boring the pants off her about wine, I should find another outlet.
OK, so she didn’t quite put it that way. And I hope I misinterpreted the boring bit. But to be honest, when I started, I bored myself a bit.
Reviewing bottles of wine quickly become dry and tedious in isolation. When I placed it in context, though, with travel or food, it was a far more enjoyable experience for me, and hopefully for my reader (s). Stories are what make wine fascinating.
Wine has now taken over my life. After a long career in journalism, PR and corporate communications, I now own a wine shop called Park+Bridge in West London, and now a nearby wine bar called Vindinista!
As a result I no longer cover specific retailers – though I will give my perspective as a retailer.
I will, however, continue to write about wines and producers irrespective of whether I stock them or not, so long as there’s a decent story there.
Oh, and you can email me at paola at parkandbridge dot com.
