Listen Up: Wine Times with the Whiz Who Is Helen Johannesen
This week, fruit is front and center—first, Claire and Erica break down why and how they’re eating all the watermelon, and then it’s onto grapes with wine guru Helen Johannesen, the cutting-edge beverage director for the restaurants in the Jon & Vinny’s empire, the founder of Helen’s Wines, and a person we now desperately want to be friends with.
Go visit Helen’s Wines (attached to Jon & Vinny’s!) in West Hollywood, and stay tuned for a second Helen’s Wines coming Brentwood’s way later this year.
Also tune into her new podcast, Wine Face!
If you’re in L.A., swing by Helen’s off-duty faves Night + Market, Bar Stella, Kismet, and everywhere Suzanne Goin is cooking.
Put Italy’s remote Pantelleria island on your wine-touristing wishlist.
