If you are currently attempting Dry July, we are thinking of you as we continue to drink this month (albeit more moderately than usual). We commend your efforts but believe that even twelve months don’t allow enough time to try all the amazing wine New Zealand has to offer.
We did try to showcase as much NZ wine as possible at Winetopia last month though. And we would like to thank everyone who gave us support at our stand. It was a great couple of days and we would not have been so successful without your determination to try our game, especially if you came up to us while the band was blasting their tunes- and our ear drums.
It seemed that everyone who tried out our game had fun and learnt a bit more about New Zealand wine along with their palate. From the competitive friends and couples, to the beginners, to the wine tasting experts, there were smiles all round. Whether it was a familiar or a new variety everyone was determined and considering that some of the wines were unusual we were impressed by the number of participants who got two or more aromas correct.
The whole premise of Winoceros is to encourage the New Zealand public to think about what you are drinking, to profile the wine yourselves; for you to feel comfortable talking about wine with your friends and family. We only had positive responses at Winetopia and we are always open to any feedback from our consumers. We also encourage further practise at wine profiling through the purchase of our wine packs via our website. They are perfect on a winter’s night at home with friends and family, or as gifts! Go on.
Here’s to vinous promiscuity.
