She has done much in the area of wine education, from the rigorous MW study programme to consumer education. She regularly organises tastings for consumers and connoisseurs, including promotional tastings for wine areas and social tastings for various London organisations. She has recently become 'cellar master' for a City of London livery company. Her current interests include food and wine matching.
