About Wink Lorch

Wink Lorch

I’m Wink Lorch, wine writer, educator and editor. I live partly in London and partly in the French Alps, an hour from Geneva, and am a specialist in the wines of Jura and the French Alps.

I published my bigger, long-awaited second book Wines of the French Alps: Savoie, Bugey and beyond in July 2019 and it has received rave reviews.

I have over 30 years of experience in wine education, tastings and presentations. I love to entertain groups about wine in a straight-forward, gently irreverent manner.
