WINE WRITER JANCIS ROBINSON HAS DONATED 40 YEARS OF HER PERSONAL FILES TO THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA. THE DOCUMENTS INCLUDE TASTING NOTES AND PRIVATE CORRESPONDENCE WITH HER COLLEAGUE ROBERT PARKER. IT WILL BE AVAILABLE IN APRIL

It is rather a unique donation to a University, at least compared to what we are used to imagining in the case of a student and / or writer. This time it is not about notes, thoughts or comments on other texts, but dozens of pages of tasting notes and, in line with "traditional" donations, an exchange of correspondence with her fellow wine writer, Robert Parker.
The world famous wine writer, Jancis Robinson, has donated her personal files, which are now in the midst of being moved from her bookshelves to those of the University of California, Davis, renowned for its courses on viticulture and winemaking. Starting in April the files will be available to the public for consultation, as the UCD site has announced (https://goo.gl/8OTKTT).
The vast collection of writings contains Robinson’s memories and opinions on wine during her illustrious career and includes tasting notes since 1976. There are 275 books of the English wine writer’s narratives during her travels to the most important wine territories around the world, photographs, all the works she has published since her first paper in 1965 and personal correspondence with the equally distinguished American critic, Robert Parker and the former British prime Minister, Tony Blair.
The archives of Jancis Robinson will join, in the UC Davis Library, those of Hugh Johnson, another world-renowned wine writer, Robert Mondovi, the first US wine producer who trigger the wine boom in Napa and Maynard Maurine, American pioneer of viticulture studies and oenology, who together with his colleague Albert Winkler invented, in 1940, the bioclimatic index of the same name.
Jancis Robinson, Master of Wine in 1984, is the co-author of "World of Wine” and curator of "The Oxford Companion to Wine", among others, and is still actively working in the wine world on her website www.JancisRobinson.com, as correspondent for the "Financial Times" and as consultant to Queen Elizabeth II's wine cellar.
