About Us

Janine PertDiscover Wine is the bright idea of Australian-born Janine Pert, whose love of wine and bubbly enthusiasm will make your event a sparkling success.

It’s hard to believe now, but when Janine arrived in the UK in 1987, there was not an Australian bottle of wine to be found in the supermarkets! How things have changed.

Janine’s passion for discovering wine began when she lived in Melbourne and spent weekends visiting the wineries of the Barossa Valley. Among her favourites was Tahbilk, one of the oldest vineyards in Australia, and her links with owners the Purbrick family continue to this day.  (A very special family dinner in London to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the winery featuring museum wines from the Tahbilk cellars is something she’ll never forget!)

Her first official wine tasting was to help choose a range of Australian wines to be served on Australian Airlines and Janine found she had a talent for sharing her know-how – and making it fun to learn a little bit more about what’s in your glass.

In the 25 years she has lived in the UK, and with the help of friend, mentor and Hampshire Hampshire Chamber of Commerceneighbour John Withers from JW Wines, she has learned a huge amount about the wine industry – and is delighted to share that expertise with the launch of her company Discover Wine. 

Discover Wine is an excellent way to discover the art of wine tasting and put what you’ve learned into practice while having fun.BII
