Digital media company Recurrent Ventures acquires JancisRobinson.com
Jancis Robinson MW has agreed to terms with Recurrent Ventures for her digital media business, JancisRobinson.com. The website joins Saveur, Domino, and BobVila.com in Recurrent’s home vertical.
Founded in 2000 as an independent publisher, JancisRobinson.com has steadily grown its subscriber base of wine enthusiasts across 82 countries. The brand’s content provides free comprehensive guides to wine regions, grape varieties, and vintages, as well as tips on how to get the most out of their wine. Members also have access to over 200,000 wine reviews, a steady stream of highly informed articles, and an exclusive version of the wine student’s bible, The Oxford Companion to Wine, of which Robinson is the founding editor.
Robinson will remain editor-in-chief and continue to oversee her team of more than 15 global contributors, including seven Masters of Wine. The business will continue to be subscriber-supported and will begin expanding its digital initiatives and upgrading its user experience in 2022.
