Winebird’s top 10 Vinalogies

wFormer Corney & Barrow wine buyer Helena Nicklin has run tasting events company Winebird since 2010.

A trained actress, she is on a mission to demystify the often confusing world of wine to consumers via “Vinalogies” – wine-based analogies that use characters to describe grape varieties, from the polo playing Malbec to the sun goddess Viognier.

With twelve years of wine industry experience and the WSET Diploma under her belt, she writes articles, hosts tasting events and has recently completed a series of food and wine related films for Great British Chefs.

The following feature rounds up ten of Nicklin’s best Vinalogies, with illustrations provided by Olivia Whitworth, who recently graduated from Camberwell College of Art with a Masters in Illustration.

Vinalogy is available on Amazon in paperback as well as on Kindle. You can follow her on Twitter via @TheWinebird.
