AN entrepreneur has launched her first range of wines after becoming internationally renowned for her night-time ‘Live with Wine’ business advice sessions on Facebook.

Helen Pritchard, 40, from Grappenhall, has delivered free five-day online challenges to tens of thousands of business owners who tune in from across the globe to watch her answer questions over a glass of wine.

Now, the 2020 Great British Entrepreneur Awards finalist has battled through lockdown to release a bespoke collection of four self-titled wines – including her signature tipple Malbec.

“I’m potentially the first entrepreneur to actively incorporate drinking wine into my Q&As on Facebook Live, so it made perfect sense to launch my own range,” she said.

“I first had the idea during a peer-to-peer mentoring group session in Colombia last December. I wanted to create a product that would surprise and delight my community, as well as to complement my training and courses.

‘As entrepreneurs, we’re always setting and smashing goals, but it’s equally important to sit and reflect upon our successes. Helen Wine is about encouraging people to take a moment to celebrate their wins.”

It has taken nine months to bring the range to market following a series of lockdown-related setbacks.

“My wine has been stuck in international ports and our distributors have been on furlough,” explained Helen. “The frustrations and complications have made this moment all the more sweeter. To finally have it in my hands feels amazing!”

Retailing at £65 for a box of six bottles, Helen is going to launch the wine during her three-day ‘Megamix Business Building Festival’, which gets under way on Tuesday.

“During the festival, there will be three live sessions and they are all free for people to take part in,” said Helen. “As well as officially unveiling Helen Wine, I will be sharing everything I have learned about building a profitable business that brings me joy – including some of my ‘best-kept secrets’!

‘There has been no other year like 2020, but it’s not over yet and I want to help business owners get through the rest of it with focus and a clear strategy.”
