About the Host
Host Name: Elizabeth Schneider
Elizabeth Schneider is the host of the internationally acclaimed podcast “Wine for Normal People” , a Certified Sommelier, and author of the “Wine for Normal People” book, which was described by Oprah Magazine as a “cheeky guide that serves up everything from the best sipping, sniffing and swirling practices to advice for picking a crowd-pleasing bottle, minus any irritating attitude.” The book has been praised in Fortune, Forbes, Epicurious, the New York Post and more. Elizabeth has been featured in Martha Stewart Living, on various NPR stations around the US, and on American Public Media's the Splendid Table. Elizabeth focuses on translating the wine world to make wine accessible and fun to everyone from novice to enthusiast. She speaks at events all over the world from Napa to Verona, Italy, and considers her most important accomplishment the fact that she has managed to remain a normal person, despite her exposure to lots of wine snoots! She's no nonsense, speaks in plain English but doesn't dumb down wine.
