May 2022: Pour de France With Helen Johannesen

When Helen Johannesen — the LA wine icon behind Helen’s Wines — put together her selection for May’s Eater Wine Club boxes, all she could think about were those outdoor summer meals that linger late into the evening. And for Helen, only a few of her favorite French bottles could do the trick. 

"French wine is near and dear to my heart," says Helen. "The terroir is so special and ranging that each bottle is entrenched in the DNA of the place it’s from." Think of your lineup as a meandering tasting through two of the better-known winemaking regions of France: the Loire Valley and the Rhone — as well as a toe-dip into two unsung hero regions that are on the rise: Gaillac and Bugey (but especially Bugey!). Or, you can think of it as a collection of delicious French wines that will blow your mind.
