Consultant & Writer

Jason Millar is an independent wine writer, consultant, tasting presenter and judge specialising in the wines of Italy and South Africa.

After graduating from Oxford University with a degree in English Literature, Jason worked in publishing for several years before a fateful bottle of Mascarello Monprivato 2003 drew him into the wine trade.

A former buying director for independent merchant Theatre of Wine, in 2016 Jason took home three scholarships for the WSET Diploma: the Graham's Port Scholarship, The Vintners' Cup and The Vintners' Scholarship for the top mark globally. Jason gained a Distinction in six of eight papers, including the Unit 3 tasting examination, and a Merit for the two remaining papers.

Jason writes a regular column for Drinks Retailing and contributes to a variety of other publications, as well as writing at jasonmillar.com and judging regularly for IWSC and Decanter
