In memory of Yvonne May@the Young Wine Writer of the Year Award, November 2013
It is desperately sad that Yvonne May, director of Wine Australia Europe has lost her battle against Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. She took extended leave from her post in April and there was then optimism that the disease had been caught in time. Sadly this optimism proved to be misplaced and Yvonne died on Friday 29th August aged 53.
Here are a few photos of Yvonne that I took last November at the Young Wine Writers of the Year Award held at Australia House, London.
My thoughts and condolences are with David, her partner, and Yvonne's family.
