What people are saying
“Amelia was great to work with on Drinks Tube. She always had great ideas for how to communicate in new ways, and make the wine (or wine gadget!) more exciting for a viewer. Amelia is also natural with the camera and always has a smile on her face, which just makes
my life much easier! ”

Ed St Giles
Director from The Wine Show
“We wanted to tell the story of Pinot Noir, it’s geographical nuances and what makes our wines at Cono Sur unique within the category. With the objective to both engage and build knowledge within our total company & with our key retail partners. We found the perfect person to lead this in Amelia; knowledgeable, personal, engaging and fun, Amelia was able to develop a 1 day course that more than delivered against our objectives. Leading to an engaged & knowledgeable team and tremendous feedback from our customers. Thank you for all your help.”
Cono Sur Marketing Manager
“Amelia combines a rigorously thorough understanding of wine with a witty and charming ambience– one leaves her evenings feeling buoyed up and confident about one’s own abilities. The evenings blend informative and useful wine teaching with Amelia’s unique sense of humour and charm. Amelia puts on a range of events- from ‘An Introduction To’ sessions to a much-loved competition night, all of which include interesting people, light-hearted and pertinent wine discussion and superlative wine tastings.”
Jennifer Bryant Pearson
MD of JBP
“We hired Amelia to consult on a new wine menu for our bars. Not only did she taste and rate the wine but she also scrutinised the supplier to make sure they knew what they were talking about. Amelia also showed great industry knowledge advising on popular trends and the ability to balance a wine menu. Polite and easy to get on with, with no wine snobbery which was very refreshing.”
