Angela’s initial interest in wine probably developed as with many others: a general interest which soon became a passion.
Alongside lecturing she is a consultant, working with various generic bodies and companies, freelance writer and trade judge. Angela has travelled extensively to all the major premium wine growing regions of France, and has visited key regions in Austria, Canada, New York State and Washington DC, Germany, Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Australia, South Africa, Brazil, Uruguay and New Zealand.
Angela has hands on experience in laboratory analysis and fruit grading in the Barossa Valley Estates Winery, Australia and was one of the winemaking team for the 2004 vintage at the Felton Road Winery, Central Otago, New Zealand.
International Trade judge in wine competitions IWC, IWSC (Panel Chair), Own Label Awards, Sommelier Wine Awards (Panel Chair) (UK) Veritas (SA), Berlin Wine Competition.
Good wine from everywhere makes her happy. Particular interests include the established and emerging wine styles of the New World with emphasis on vine growing and wine making; she has a keen interest in organic and biodynamic wines.
