Goode Tastes

We are thrilled to announce a new collaboration with the renowned and respected scientist, wine writer, and guitarist, Dr. Jamie Goode. Each week we will send a couple of bottles of wines from our portfolio for Jamie to taste, and he will film a video of his honest opinions about them. For those who already follow Jamie on Instagram, you know what to expect – a forthright assessment, a British aversion to hype, and an ever-rotating selection of remarkable t-shirts. If you’re not already following him, stop everything and do so right now.

Look for this new video series starting November 1st on Instagram.

Jamie is also interviewing some of our growers about their work which you can find in our News & Events feed, but here is a list of interviews he’s already done:

You can follow Jamie through his own blog at, on Twitter, and Instagram.


Jamie Goode is a London-based wine writer, lecturer, wine judge, and book author. With a Ph.D. in plant biology, he worked as a science editor, before starting in 1999, which became a popular wine website.

Since 2005 he’s been the wine columnist for UK national newspaper The Sunday Express and has written regularly for a range of publications, including The World of Fine Wine, Meininger’s Wine Business International, Noble Rot, Wine & Spirits, Vine Pair, and Drinks International.

He is in demand as a speaker/lecturer and also a wine judge and is one of the co-chairs for the International Wine Challenge. He has been a regular overseas judge for the Top 10 Chenin Blanc competition in South Africa and WineAlign’s National Wine Awards of Canada. He has recently been a keynote speaker for the Cool Climate Wine Symposium, the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc Celebration, the Australian Wine Technical Conference, The Atlantic Wine Forum, the Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir Celebration, the Elgin Chardonnay Colloquium, and TexSom. He’s also prolific on Twitter (@jamiegoode) and Instagram (@drjamiegoode).

What is fine wine to Jamie? “It’s wines that you want to share with others; talk about; linger over. Wines of authenticity and interest.”
