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.
A leading journalist and drink expert, she is the wine writer for BBC Good Food Magazine and Wine Editor of the Daily Telegraph where she writes regular columns for the Saturday newspaper and online for Telegraph Luxury. She also contributes features to the Telegraph Magazine and has recorded a series of short wine guides for Telegraph Video.
Multi-award-winning, she has been the Louis Roederer Wine Columnist of the Year, the Louis Roederer Online Communicator of the Year, and the Fortnum & Mason Drink Writer of the Year.
Victoria is also very interested in smell and perfume. She holds a postgraduate Diploma in Psychology and has written about and given talks on how our senses of smell and taste work, as well as the involvement of memory and emotion in smell.
Before turning to wine full time, Victoria worked as a feature writer at the Daily Mail. She is an accomplished writer, interviewer and editor and loves contributing to radio and television programmes – she has appeared on ITV’s Save Money Good Food and BBC Radio 4’s The Food Programme. She also acts as a wine adviser and her written work has appeared in Harper’s Bazaar, Imbibe and the Guardian, among other places.
Though there’s not much left of her accent, Victoria grew up in Yorkshire (it’s haddock and chips please, not cod). She read English Literature at Cambridge University and now lives in London with her daughter and a clutter of bottles and glasses.
