Joel Helman, Wineguy
Joel Helman has way too many years of experience consulting and helping consumers find suitable wines (since 1982). From telephone calls to pouring wines for clients, from emails to rigorous wine tastings with producers, Joel always looks out for his clients - people like you, who just want to drink good wine! Is it his palate? His wine training? No, it’s his meticulous note taking and dedication to the client that makes the difference. He’s a guy from Chicago who loves the blues, still hoping for the Cubs (sigh), enjoys deep-dish pizza and a great Zinfandel to go with it. A Californian since 1973, Joel wants people to have more fun with wine.
Joel is married to Jenny, and they have one adult child, Gabrielle. Living in Healdsburg, you’ll find him gardening, hiking, occasionally kayaking or just enjoying a fine wine and conversation with friends.
