Hello! I’m Helen McGinn, author of The Knackered Mother’s Wine Club, an award winning wine blog and best-selling wine book. I’m an ex-supermarket wine buyer and spent almost a decade sourcing wines around the world. I then spent the next half-decade pregnant.
Married with three children, I’m an international wine judge and write a weekly drinks column for the Daily Mail’s Femail magazine. I write for magazines including Sainsbury’s and Waitrose Drinks and regular TV appearances include This Morning and The Alan Titchmarsh Show. My latest book, Homemade Cocktails, has just been published.
I post here on the blog (almost) every week, with at least two wine recommendations each week. Awards for the blog include Fortnum & Mason’s Online Drink Writer of the Year, Red Magazine’s Best Blogger and BritMums Outstanding Blog Award.
‘Love love love this book. It doesn’t just simplify wine, it simplifies life. Essential reading’
