Elizabeth Schneider is a hero of mine and likely yours too! Despite my never-ending quest to become a “wine expert,” I started out as a normal person who loved wine.

If you happen to fall in that camp, then you probably already know about Elizabeth’s hit podcast, the aptly named, Wine for Normal People.

Elizabeth is a champion of making wine easy to understand and accessible to everyone. While there’s dozens of episodes I love, my all-time favorite is her episode on Champagne. It’s a great example of what she does best: provide listeners with great insight into the region so they can have the comfort and knowledge to explore it. After all, we should all be drinking more Champagne.

Let’s turn it over to Elizabeth and learn how she started in wine and developed her podcast.

“Why when I walk into a wine shop or go to a tasting…does it feel like I am walking into a movie where I don’t understand anything that’s happening here and no one’s
explaining it.”

Update on Elizabeth

I’m excited to share that Elizabeth Schneider’s book, Wine for Normal People: A Guide for Real People Who Like Wine, but Not the Snobbery That Goes with It, will be available everywhere on November 5, 2019.

This interview goes back two years ago, and it’s so exciting to know that her guide is finally becoming a reality.

I’ve already pre-ordered my copy, and if you’re a fan of Elizabeth, you should do the same.
