Born and brought up on a vineyard in the southwest of France, Isabelle Legeron, 37, is the sixth generation of a Cognac producing family. Wine runs in her blood, and thanks to her adventurous spirit, she's always out and about: sniffing, tasting, exploring. Isabelle adores communicating her love of wine. She works regularly with Michelin starred chefs, pairing wine to their food; runs wine tasting courses for the public; heads up Wine Lab, a boutique wine tasting company running events for clients in the City; and presents her own wine programme, Journey into Wine, that broadcasts to 117 countries in 15 different languages. She is also a regular judge for wine competitions such as the Decanter Awards and the IWC, and recently became Wine Woman of the Year 2009 in Paris.
