Diana in NYC ,

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!

Pod dreams

Helen is a very special type of person. Highly educated in the wine and food world but can break down these topics to the novices. Thanks for the pod. I’m learning so much with you:)
