Who is Winebird?

Helena Nicklin is Winebird: a wine writer, presenter and author of ‘Winebird’s Vinalogy: wine basics with a twist!’. She bridges the gap between fabulously detailed wine journalists and normal people who just want the basics – information they can actually use – in memorable, bite-size chunks.

What’s a Vinalogy?

Educating through entertainment rather than dry facts, Winebird tells stories and creates ‘vinalogies’: wine-based analogies that help turn wine characteristics into vivid, memorable personalities. It’s about making wine education more visual,entertaining and therefore, memorable. Pinot Noir is the ballerina of wine grapes, for example. Cabernet Sauvignon, the rugby player. Nebbiolo, the ladyboy…
