Wine Folly Names Top Wine Destinations for 2022

November 16, 2021

SEATTLE, November 16, 2021 - In 2011, Madeline Puckette was a 20-something sommelier serving wine across the bar when the idea popped into her head: “I should start a blog to help people learn about wine!”

Ten years, over a thousand articles, hundreds of YouTube videos, and two award-winning books later, Wine Folly continues to be a platform dedicated to helping people discover wine.

Then in 2019, Wine Folly merged with Global Wine Database to create Folly Enterprises. While the company name has changed, the mission remains the same: make the complicated world of wine easy to access.

The team created freely accessible wine region guides to help support wineries and wine regions hit by the pandemic.
