Nancy Gilchrist to consult for Oxford Wine Company

Independent wine merchant the Oxford Wine Company has appointed Master of Wine Nancy Gilchrist as a consultant, with additional responsibility for the retailer’s sales to Oxford University Colleges.

Gilchrist, who became a MW in 1995, started her career in publishing but soon combined this with her love of wine, which was developed at Cambridge University. She ran the Carlton wine bar in Washington, a stone’s throw from the White House, and later spent two years as wine columnist for the Boston Globe.

After returning to the UK, she became head of the Grants of St James School of Wine, and later took over running the Christie’s wine course from Michael Broadbent MW and Steven Spurrier.

She devised the food & wine combinations module at Leith’s School of Food & Wine, where she teaches, and last year launched the Academie du Vin at 67 Pall Mall. Other roles have included being UK Champagne Ambassador for 2013. She is currently UK ambassador for Italy’s Alto Adige and Trentodoc regions, and regularly visits the vineyards of South Africa.
