Jury members

Tamlyn
Tamlyn Currin

Tamlyn was born in Zimbabwe and had a wine-deprived upbringing. It wasn’t until she arrived in the UK at the age of 21 that she discovered wine, and her education started on the very bottom shelf with Blue Nun plonk. By the time she was 30, she was so obsessed with wine that she put herself through the WSET diploma and then gave up a well-paid, senior position in IT to start all over again – this time working for Jancis Robinson, where she has been for the last 12 years.
