Welcome to Episode 1495, in which Cynthia Chaplin interviews Noelle Hale in this installment of Voices, on the Italian Wine Podcast.
More about today’s guest
Noelle’s passion for wine began on a trip to New Zealand, when she discovered Marlborough makes a lot more than just Sauvignon Blanc. When she got back home, she signed up for a WSET Level 2 class and leveraged that qualification to get hired in a tasting room. She recently completed her WSET Diploma, and when she’s not selling wine as a distributor rep in Santa Barbara, she’s teaching classes in wine country for the Napa Valley Wine Academy. You can also find her running, cooking or playing fetch with her corgi, Winston.
