“Andrea is hugely impressive – academic in thought but not in writing style. And, as I saw in Wellington at Pinot Noir NZ last year, she is a brilliant speaker too.” — Jancis Robinson MW 

“Andrea is my wine crush. She writes and speaks on wine in a totally original way – and has more insights than we in the world of wine really deserve. She is also hilarious, which is probably the most important thing …” — Sam Neill, Actor and Proprietor of Two Paddocks

“If, like me, you get tired of technicalities and suffer tasting-note nausea, I recommend joining Andrea Frost on her gentle, thoughtful stroll through wine, life and most things in between.” – Andrew Jefford

“Marvellous.” — Hugh Johnson

“It’s a refreshing, unashamedly romantic approach to wine writing, concerned more with the context and culture, the philosophy and mystery of wine than the liquid in the glass.” – Max Allen

“Frost is a talented raconteur … skilfully taking us on her magical journey into the world of wine.” – Australian Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine

“More like an evening with a particularly erudite and witty dinner companion than a class at the local wine school.” — The World of Fine Wine

“Listening to Andrea Frost talk about wine, and wine communication, is like listening to a beautiful orchestra. A pleasure to hear her speak.” — Natalie Corkery, New Zealand Wine
