She also served as British Airways' wine consultant, supervised the BA Concorde cellar luxury selection, and provides advice for the Queen's wine cellar. Her book, Jancis Robinson's Wine Course, written to accompany her BBC 2 series, has been published in several editions. She was made an OBE in 2003, and her many accolades include multiple Glenfiddich Awards and André Simon Memorial Awards. As a wine writer she edited The Oxford Companion to Wine, and The World Atlas of Wine, which she co-authored with Hugh Johnson, is one of the world's leading wine atlases.
