Wine writer + expert Elaine Chukan Brown speaks with with London-based wine writer Jamie Goode focusing on California in a global context.

Jamie came to wine writing by a rather convoluted route, via a PhD in plant biology and several years of working as a book editor. Today, in addition to writing for his own site, he is the wine columnist with UK national newspaper The Sunday Express. He won the 2007 Glenfiddich Wine Writer of the year award, and contributes regularly to a range of publications including The World of Fine Wine, Noble Rot, Wine and Spirits (USA), Wine Business International, Drinks International, Wines and Vines and Vine Pair and is author of the book Wine Science. Jamie has also made numerous presentations and lectures, conducted many tastings and is an established wine judge (co-chair for the International Wine Challenge, among others).
