    Ep. 64 Intro to Puglia

    Ep. 64 Intro to Puglia

    I woke up the other morning with Puglia in the brain! And realized we needed to talk about it! Mostly because Valentina Passalaqua's wines are a straight up vision from Puglia and break from some traditions there so it's best to get a better understanding of the entire enchilada!

Amaze balls

Helen has the ultimate cool girl snob-free approach to wine. I’m learning so much about wine, exploring things I didn’t reach for before, and am being more intentional about which producers I’m supporting. Helen, please open a shop in Seattle and be my new BFF. Thanks!

Quality Pod!

Many podcasts are way too freewheeling and LONG winded. The genius of Helen J’s show is that it’s informative yet succinct, and also sprinkled with her fun lingo and humor! Wine is such a perfect theme for a podcast because there really is so much to learn. I’m enjoying the snack sized portions and I’m looking forward to hearing more!

Best wine podcast

Every week I look forward to what Helen has up her sleeve. Wine face is an informative podcast that helps navigate you to understanding wine in ways that are enjoyable! From different regions, grapes, producers, food pairings to friends just chatting it up about their business’ while drinking wine. This is a total gem.
