NZ's only digital marketing agency focused on wine. We're changing the way wineries think about marketing. Real life IG @winomofo + @mme_hammond
I’m happy as a pig in mud! This #sicilian is living up to its hype. Precise, good acidity, bright fruit, what’s not to love. The real test will be to see if it can hold up to a Thai curry. I’m not expecting it to but since that’s what I’m cooking we’ll get to see how it does. It has the acidity and no oak so let’s see! #wine
Vermut in a jam jar because I’ll drink Vermut in pretty much any vessel. Ice, slice of orange and pour, just like in Spain. Anyone have any other additions? I’ve embraced Vermut o’clock @jamesblickspain #vermut #vermouth
Well, holy $&@# @chateauguiraud this is insanely good! If you want to know what Bordeaux Blanc should taste like get this! It’s such a perfect harmony between the Sauvignon Blanc and the Semillon. Smokey, tropical, waxy but with great acidity that keeps your tongue tingling. Freaking lovely.
Diversity, Inclusion, Equity, and Belonging. This @batonnage_forum panel makes me very happy. 5f people will know this is a massive soapbox for us. Hugely grateful to hear these perspectives.
Made it! Much love to @beckhopkinswine for treating me, and big thanks to @batonnage_forum who was so sweet when I rocked up an hour late.
This picture is now ridiculous and tradition! Off to Napa to be a keynote, attend @batonnage_forum, and hang out with some of my favourite people. ✈️🍇
Spot the Chapel at the top of the sacred hill of #hermitage! It was amazing to see just how steep these hills were. You can read about it but seeing it is something else! Thanks to @remicotesdurhone for hosting #dvr2019
Woo we got through some wines! An NZ/Spain wine show-off. I won’t call it a competition because we were all just showing off the wines were really proud of from our home countries (plus a sneaky and delicious Italian). It was really cool to taste a 100% Xarel.lo, which was delicious, and an example of a new wave Mencia which had good acidity and was almost light on the palate. The topper for me was the @bodegasrlopezdeheredia #tondonia rosado #rose. This is definitely not rosé as you know it. Held in huge old wooden vats for years this is gently oxidised. Like all of the Tondonia wines it continued to evolve in the glass for ages! One day I’ll hog a whole bottle so I can see how much it can change over hours. @pyramidvalleyvineyards #kusuda @sfrisowinery @cambridgeroad @georgesroad you did us proud! Thanks to the gents at @rack_and_return and the lovely @winealphabet for organising it and bringing some lovely cheese! (And homemade empanadas!)
The @remicotesdurhone people are putting it on again today. The tastings are held in the Pope’s Palace in Avignon. A really incredible back drop to some great wines. #france #rhone #wine #avignon #dvr2019
Hey @mme_hammond ! Look what I found! The wines of @matthieu_barret_cornas are crazy good! #dvr2019 @remicotesdurhone
When you’re at a tasting in Côte-Rotie and you come across a #kiwi winemaker making insane wines! Domaine Bott (@graemejuliebott) is rockin! Hey @saorsawines wines check this out! Graeme is giving you a run for it on the Viognier and Syrah front! He says hello!
And so it begins! Découvertes en Vallée du Rhône. The Rhone Valley (@remicotesdurhone) is putting on quite the show of their wines. Today is Cote Rotie, Condrieu, and Saint-Joseph. #dvr2019
It’s Vermut o’clock! I can’t get enough of this stuff. Thanks @pickapictour for the suggestion!
