Victoria Moore

Victoria Moore is the author of the best-selling book The Wine Dine Dictionary, which won the André Simon Special Commendation Award and has been hailed as a ‘bible’ for food and drink lovers.

Writing about wine has taken her to vineyards near the clear skies of the Atacama Desert in Chile, had her wading thigh-deep in troughs of port grapes and juice and seen her exploring the labyrinthine chalk cellars beneath Champagne, which locals used to shelter from shelling during World War I.

Victoria also writes for the Daily Telegraph and holds a postgraduate diploma in psychology, and is particularly interested in how we experience smell and taste.

Though there’s not much left of her accent, she grew up in Yorkshire and now lives in London with her daughter and a clutter of bottles and glasses.
