Mel Jones MW 1962 - 2015
Mel suffered a stroke in June which severely limited her activity and she died on the morning of Friday 21 August after a sudden deterioration in her health.
Please continue to read and post about wine, life and everything - that is what QO is for.
If anyone has any ideas about how we can keep Quaffers' Offers going, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and Mel's husband, David, will pick those emails up.
We will post again when we have more news.
I have tried to make this site user-friendly and clear. I don’t want to be some posh bird who expects everyone to be able to list the classified growths of 1855 alphabetically, because I certainly can’t and that’s nowhere near the point of wine.
It is a fascinating drink that changes from vintage to vintage, from month to month in bottle and each producer makes a wonderfully different wine from his neighbour. In addition, prices are constantly changing and I want my readers to be able to grab the great wines at the very best prices and be warned about the grim, the dull and the pointless. Life is too short to drink inadequate wine and there are good wines for every budget.
While I am proficient in tasting wine and became a Master of Wine in 2010 and so have some authority, I think it’s also interesting to hear the opinions of serious wine lovers and also complete beginners who add a fresh and non-snobby slant on things. Although I think as wine lovers we sometimes lean towards snobbishness, we are also fiercely keen on a bargain.
I am very careful with the input of prices, etc, but cannot be held responsible for any errors nor for stock levels at your local shop. If you're basing a huge order around these prices, it is best to phone ahead first.
If you see any really obvious typos or mistakes I’d really appreciate a quick email.
