Another fantastic podcast guest! Helena Nicklin is my latest interviewee on Season 3 of the Island Stories podcast. The wine and drinks guru is no stranger to podcasting – with her popular drinks podcast ‘Bring a Bottle’ and TV series on Amazon Prime. I asked her what hope there is for a really special wine brand from the Island? ‘I think it’s happening… when you drive around the Island you’ll see, there are loads of south-facing slopes which is what you want for ripening the grape.

There’s loads of chalk for a Chardonnay Pinot Noir which makes world class sparkling wines. It’s a little sunnier here than the mainland, it can be a bit windy, so you don’t go too high but my gosh, the potential is huge.’ Cheers!
