About Celia

Half Londoner, half country girl, Celia came to wine by accident through a summer job in a vineyard when she was 19. 

Fast-forward nine years, she left her job as senior copywriter for Majestic Wine to launch a site which talked about drinks - specifically to young people.

Celia is also a freelance copywriter and content marketer, writing principally about wine and food (especially DIY kitchen projects). For more information, check out her professional website.

She's also dabbled in recipe development - but you'll have to wait until next year to see the results of that!

A WSET diploma student and qualified Leiths graduate, she believes world peace is totally achievable with the right food and wine pairing.

About this site

Millennials. We’re a formidable tribe, right?

Addicted to our phones; attention spans to rival goldfish; chronically self-aggrandising; perennially avoiding the responsibilities of #adulting.

True or not as the above may be, our generation, set to inherit a world fast spinning off its axis, are a hell of a lot of other things too. We’re kind; community-focussed; eco-conscious; politically active, and fundamentally determined to choose the best in every circumstance.

And that includes what we’re drinking.

I’ve worked in the drinks trade in one guise or another since I was 19. A couple of really great things have happened in that time. The trade is no longer the corduroyed sausage-fest it used to be. And writers like Helen McGuinn are talking about wine and other drinks in a fresh way to people who otherwise wouldn’t have been interested.

But still – look for someone directly addressing millennials and you come up tumbleweed. And I don’t think that’s because we’re all too busy sipping on green juice.

So for anyone who’s ever wondered what the hell to show up to a dinner party with the day before pay-day, what’s best to buy in a corner shop emergency, how to look like you know what you’re talking about on a date, what’s the best G&T in a can…this site is for you.

Ready? Pass the corkscrew.
