💕LOVE💕

This podcast is excellent! Helen’s relaxed style has allowed me to learn so much about wine and the wine industry without feeling like I’m studying. Each episode is jam-packed with information, and Helen is so hilarious that she makes learning fun.

Great podcast

Personally prefer the episodes that do not have guests and are more focused on wine education. I’d also be really interested in learning more about Helen’s (and any guests’) experiences working in the food and wine industry, and about the wine industry generally.

One of my favorites

This is the first review I’ve ever felt compelled to write. I listen to so many podcasts for work and personal growth, but this is one that’s purely for enjoyment. I love turning it on while I’m cooking (and having a glass.) Helen has a way of describing wines that brings them to life in a fun, accessible, but still polished and educational way. Thanks for sending me down the rabbit hole of Beaujolais cru and pet-nat, and supplying me with an unending list of wines to try. Please come back to NYC and host a tasting! One request — any way to do a periodic/seasonal show on favorite value wines for those of us on a budget? Love your show!
