Sara Underdown is an Australian-based educator, presenter and wine writer specialising in Champagne. She is WSET Level 3 qualified and is one of Australia’s recognised voices for champagne through the prestigious Vin de Champagne Awards, the Louis Roederer International Wine Writers’ Awards and the Born Digital Wine Awards. In addition to writing for her own publication, she writes regularly for numerous drinks publications, magazines and newspapers.
