Sozzled is a little wine blog.
It started life in London as a way of getting friends together over a glass of wine, moved to Malaysia and is now back in North London.
I started Sozzled for two reasons; because I love wine and also because I wanted to flex some creative-writing juices. I moved on from a basic, amateur enjoyment of wine to read more, take copious wine tasting notes (much to the amusement of my wife and friends) and eventually studying for the WSET Advanced Certificate. A fairly sizeable wine collection, mainly French red, currently lies waiting in a cellar courtesy of the Wine Society and Fine+Rare. Out of reach, it is at least safe!
Faves tend to be restricted to regions rather than individual producers:
– The Languedoc
– The Rhone, especially Cote Rotie
– Western Australia
My favourite white grape is Riesling and favourite red is Syrah.
