William Kelley
Wine Advocate Reviewer
William Kelley developed a love of wine while studying at Oxford, where he presided over the University's prestigious Wine Circle for three years while completing a doctorate in history. In addition to tastings with many of the Old World's greatest producers, he brought many of California's most celebrated and exciting wineries to Oxford for the first time. Kelley had the unique privilege to cut his teeth as a taster on many of the great wines of Burgundy of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. After a stint covering Burgundy for Decanter magazine and working harvests in both California and the Côte d'Or, he made the happy move to The Wine Advocate in 2017. His first-hand experience making wine informs the way he writes about it. Today, he reviews the wines of Burgundy, Champagne, Madeira and English Sparkling Wine.
