My name is Simon Reilly. I am a wine writer based in South East London. I am passionate about discovering new and exciting wines which offer value for money. I write about the wines I taste and other related wine stuff that I think is interesting, brilliant or annoying.
My aim is to write about wine in a straight forward way that is accessible to everyone.
I have been shortlisted for a few awards for my writing; the Louis Roederer International Wine Writers' Awards 2017 in the "Emerging Writer" category and the 2017 Millesima Wine Blog Awards in the "Wine Reporter" category.
I also came second in the Born Digital Wine Awards 2017 in the "Best Investigative/Journalistic Wine Story" category.
One of these days I might win one, but as an Aberdeen FC fan, these days I am happy enough with second place. Stand Free.
