Short biography
Cyril Ray (16 March 1908 – 24 September 1991) was an English author and journalist. After a spell as a war reporter, and then a foreign correspondent he became best known for writing about food and, especially, wine. He became a wine writer almost randomly, and had strong interests in other spheres such as military history and riding. In addition to writing about food and wine, Ray wrote histories of major wine producers, including Ch. Lafite, Ch. Mouton Rothschild and Bollinger. He also wrote volumes of military history. A strong socialist, he resigned from prominent positions when he felt his principles incompatible with those of the publication.
