  1. Steve Webb says:

    I do hope Sandrine Garbay is top – she does after all make the best wine in the world bar none!

    • Martin Campion says:

      Steve, Sandrine comes a close second, but top spot surely goes to Katharina Pum. Berenice Lurton is # three, obviously.

  2. I would Tanya Torr right up very close to the top .
