Kirsten Rødsgaard-Mathiesen

Biography

My journalistic career spans more than 20 years. As a news and feature journalist for TV & print media, I have covered a vast number of subjects in my native Denmark as well as overseas. Since moving to New Zealand in the early 2000s, I have focused on some of my passions: design, travel, food and wine.
Thanks to mingling and mixing with lots of wine people from all over New Zealand, attending uncountable wine-tastings and writing about wine, I have gathered a fair bit of knowledge about the modern wine industry here.
With my latest book, PASSION, PINOT & SAVVY I offer an up-to-date insight into New Zealand's exquisite wine industry, through the eyes of 16 women winemakers passionate about their craft.
PASSION, PINOT & SAVVY profiles these 16 winemakers and covers the most vital aspects of modern winemaking in New Zealand, with the views of these articulate women on key issues in the world's youngest wine country.
Extensive background detail and reference links make PASSION, PINOT & SAVVY an invaluable general reference for wine aficionados curious about New Zealand wine; but more than that, it’s a great read about 16 personal journeys by 16 very savvy women.
I am also the author of Denmark's bestselling guidebook to New Zealand, "Turen går til NZ", which is updated every three years. Next edition is due in 2015.
