Why does a lot of writing about wine ignore the alcoholic buzz? How did Audrey Hepburn kick start our guest’s relationship with wine? What effect can pregnancy have on your palate?
In this episode of the Unreserved Wine Talk podcast, I'm chatting with journalist and podcaster, Jaime Lewis.
You can find the wines we discussed at https://www.nataliemaclean.com/winepicks.
How did visions of Audrey Hepburn kick start Jaime’s relationship with wine?
When did Jaime start writing about wine?
Why do wine connoisseurs often avoid talking about the buzz?
Why is Jaime transitioning away from wine writing?
What effect did pregnancy have on Jaime’s palate?
What was the inspiration for Jaime’s podcast, CONSUMED?
Which New Zealand wine left Jaime shocked and inspired?
What makes working in a New Zealand tasting room so different from one in the US?
Why is it so complicated to navigate the wine world as a woman?
I like Jaime’s reality take on why the buzz of alcohol in wine is often not mentioned in a lot of wine writing. I, too, wish there was more acknowledgement of wine’s full-bodied sensory experience.
I enjoyed her stories about Italian wine and food culture, with a nod to Audrey Hepburn.
I’m fascinated with the impact pregnancy has on your palate, along with other physical and mental changes from depression to other diseases. It’s all so connected.
