wine with christina

Growing up, it was Christina’s dream to become a writer. While her friends were attending soccer camp, she went to writing camp year after year. She scribbled stories furiously on her electric typewriter. She won local awards for her words. Her English teacher mother had high hopes for her writing career. And then she caught the acting bug, and scribbling went by the wayside.

Unexpectedly, it was wine that got her back into writing. Which has made her mother very happy indeed.

Christina is currently a Contributing Editor at Wine Enthusiast, covering Australia and New Zealand. For over two years Christina wrote the wine section for Scoop, Western Australia’s leading lifestyle magazine. She has also contributed to publications including DecanterHarpers Wine & SpiritThe Drinks BusinessImbibe, and World Travel Guide in the UK, Gourmet Traveller Wine and James Halliday’s Wine Companion in Australia, and Wine EnthusiastAfar, and Food & Wine in the U.S.
