Caroline Gilby has been writing and talking about wine for over 12 years after a previous career working as senior wine buyer for Augustus Barnett. Several trips to Eastern Europe as wine buyer just after the Iron Curtain came down has developed into a special interest in the wines of the former Eastern Bloc, and regular visits to countries like Moldova, Bulgaria, Romania, Slovenia and Hungary - maybe not the most glamorous parts of the wine world but fascinating as things are changing so quickly. Caroline passed her Master of Wine in 1992, and with a PhD in plant sciences, she also takes an interest in viticulture and wine science. Caroline contributes to Wine Report, Oxford Companion to Wine, Harpers, Decanter and Drinks International and is on the editorial board of Journal of Wine Research.
