Jill is a writer whose characters make wine, love wine, and live wine. Research for her forthcoming novel–the story of a Provençal winemaking family during the Second World War–has afforded her glorious pleasures: meetings with ambitious French vignerons, travel up and down France in bouncy Renaults, overnights in shuttered châteaux, and many hours as a student of wine with a glass to her lips. In this role, she not only enjoys her own relationship with wine but she also indulges in the life of the French winemaking family that inhabits the pages of her novel.

Jill writes about wine, travel and occasionally yoga (she’s a certified yoga instructor). Her fiction has been featured on NPR and has been published in several literary journals.

Her writings can also be found on her blog L’Occasion.

    Next time that your near Apt, see if you can find Eydins. It’s a small vin yard not far from Pont Julian. We found it as a recommendation from our land lord whilst staying in St Saturnin le Apt. We haven’t managed find it anywhere else. As we are staying in Cassis early September we will take a day trip to purchase a couple of cases.
