Award Winning Champagne Educator and Author and Champagne Dame

Unlike most wine presenters who gain their income from wine sales or brand promotion, Jayne is a trusted independent champagne and wine expert, speaker, educator, TV presenter and writer who has built an internationally recognised brand “Champagne Jayne®”and developed a successful global career as an award-winning broadcaster, entertainer and authority on champagne.

Named Champagne Educator of the Year by Harpers Magazine and Winner of the Gourmand Best French Wine Book (Australia) for her book “Champagnes – Behind The Bubbles”, Jayne’s palate has always been a free agent, unencumbered by any brand sponsorship. So naturally there is never any sales pitch in Champagne Jayne’s presentations.
