Looking for a writer?

Simone is a thoughtful writer who understands the nuances of storytelling.  However beyond her talent, I would wholeheartedly recommend her because of her professionalism.  She’ll deliver quality writing, on time and without fuss.

Mandy Chan

Owner Ginsberg + Chan Wine Merchants Asia

Hong Kong

As a highly motivated writer with a focus on the wines, regions and gourmet destinations of New Zealand and Australia, I provide feature and copywriting services to a variety of clients.

The people and places behind a glass of wine are what drives me to write inspiring content. You can hear me talk about the wines of New Zealand and Australia with Elizabeth Schneider on the US based podcast Wine for Normal People and my words can be found in several print and online publications.
