About Sorrel

I’m a British freelance journalist and independent sommelier based in Argentina since 2006. Fluent in Spanish and a Buenos Aires resident, I specialise in Latin America, writing about food, travel and wine, with particular love for Argentina. Welcome to my work portfolio. 

I qualified as a sommelier in December 2014, and hold WSET 3 and the Court of Master Sommeliers level one introductory certificate. I’m also a co-founder of Dill & Tonic, a ready-to-drink gin and tonic made in Argentina, which launched in July 2020. In 2021, Mil, the book I co-wrote with Peruvian chef Virgilio Martínez, will be published by Catapulta.

I’ve contributed to an array of publications, websites and books including The Guardian, Monocle, Decanter, Wine Enthusiast, Condé Nast Traveler (US), Wallpaper* magazine and guide books, Saveur, Departures, Fine Dining Lovers, The World’s 50 Best Restaurants blog, The Points Guy, La Nación (ARG) T+L, Fortune, Condé Nast Traveller (UK), N by Norwegian, Fine Dining Lovers, Rough Guides, The Independent, MIC, Centurion, CNN Travel, Fodor’s, The Points Guy, The Real Argentina, New Worlder, Lugares (ARG), Cuisine & Vins (ARG), Forbes Argentina, Buenos Aires Herald for nine years, Time Out Buenos Aires, DK Eyewitness, The Real Argentina, The Financialist and Screen International. In 2016 I won a LATA prize for an article about Salta.

Come Wine With Me is my wine blog;  I ran pop-up wine bar, Come Wine With Us, for four years and in 2020, launched Dill & Tonic, a ready-to-drink gin and tonic in Argentina.

One thought on “About Sorrel

  1. Hello Sorrel!

    I am a photographer in New York and will be visiting Buenos Aires for the first two weeks of January. I am very much interested
    in finding a local fixer or guide for a few days to help me get oriented and to meet locals.

    As you can see from my work, I am not interested in tourist attractions and if anything, I appreciate the slums, favelas, villas
    side of a city. Please checkout my work here:


    I read a few articles of yours and am fascinated by your journey and work. Do you think we could meet up for a meal or some
    drinks to chat? And do you know of anyone that I can hire for a few days to help me get a feel for the city, translate for me and
    possibly visit the slums?

    The greatest goal for me always with each city I visit is to eat with a family in their home.
