Jancis Robinson sold her wine website to Recurrent Ventures

01.09.2021, News

JancisRobinson.com, the website of renowned wine writer and critic Jancis Robinson, has been acquired by Miami-based digital media company Recurrent Ventures.

Jancis Robinson, who is considered one of the most famous and uncompromising wine critics of our time, needs no special introduction: everyone who is related to the world of wine has undoubtedly heard of this principled lady, who is legendary. We at Drinks+ were lucky to interview Mrs. Robinson, in addition, she was so kind that she agreed at our request to taste the wines of three Ukrainian producers, and she talked about her impressions in the Saturday issue of the Financial Times and in the article Wine Exotica on her portal.

And now the news has come that the site JancisRobinson.com, which Jancis Robinson has been working on since 2000, has changed its owner. The transaction amount has not been disclosed, but it is known that the founder and ideological mastermind of the project will continue to act as editor-in-chief and oversee the work of the international team of the site, consisting of 15 people, of which seven are Masters of Wine. The basic concept and directions of work will not change, but next year it is planned to expand the portal’s capabilities and improve its user interface. The subscription format will also remain, thanks to which all members of the subscriber base from 82 countries of the world have access to more than 200,000 wine reviews, a constant stream of info content and an exclusive version of Oxford Companion to Wine, which Robinson is the founding editor of.

“I’m extremely proud of all that JancisRobinson.com has grown into. We’re now at the point where we need a bigger platform to see the site reach its full potential. This partnership will allow me to focus on what I enjoy most: tasting and writing about wine,” Robinson said.

“I’m thrilled to be working with Recurrent, a dynamic, fast-growing company run by talented, ambitious people who share my ideals of quality, integrity and sustainability. Our members have been the backbone of our company and they will continue to be our primary focus as we welcome even more wine lovers to JancisRobinson.com,” she added.

Lance Johnson, Recurrent CEO, said: “Jancis is one of the most respected voices in the wine world and we’re thrilled that she’s selected Recurrent to shepherd her brand into its next chapter. We’re excited to build upon JancisRobinson.com’s track record of success by providing the support, resources, and expertise the brand needs to grow without changing its editorial mission and integrity.”

Founded in 2018, Recurrent is headquartered in Miami with offices in New York and San Francisco, and a virtual-first team across the US. The company’s portfolio includes 17 digital media brands dedicated to automobiles, home, lifestyle, outdoors, science and technology.
