The Capital Wine School is pleased to host a special Burgundy tasting and book signing with renowned wine critic and award-winning author, Jeannie Cho Lee.

The first Asian Master of Wine, Jeannie is considered by many to be Asia’s most respected authority on the subject. Awards for Jeannie’s books Asian Palate and Mastering Wine include the 2009 Gourmand award for Best Food and Wine Pairing Book in the world; the International Association of Culinary Professionals Award in “Wine, Beer, or Spirits”; and the Organisation Internationale de la Vigne et du Vin Award in “Wine and Gastronomy”. She is the Co-Chair of the Decanter Asia Wine Awards in Hong Kong, and the Burgundy Chair for the Decanter World Wine Awards in London. For three years Jeannie co-hosted In Vino Vertias, a popular weekly wine television program in Hong Kong. She is the former publisher of Le Pan, and is currently a monthly wine columnist for The Robb Report China. Jeannie is a Certified Wine Educator with the Wine & Spirits Education Trust, and holds a master’s degree from Harvard University.

Jeannie’s latest book, The 100 Burgundy: Exceptional Wines to Build a Dream Cellar, has been praised by Steven Spurrier as “a roll-call of Burgundy’s greatest wines, described with effortless beauty by someone who understands them as true works of art.”
