Me, You And Wines.com, Too

Vinted on February 15, 2012 binned in going pro

I’m happy to announce what most of you reading this already know, which is that I’m now a featured contributor to the video blog on Wines.com. You can check out my first installment, in which I brave the wilderness of my backyard to talk about the brouhaha surrounding the Natural Wine movement.

The idea behind my vid series over at Wines.com is to take the concept I tried out in “simplifying” the world of Port in about 5 minutes of video, and use that compressed-and-pithy format to dissect other aspects of the wine world, wine biz and wine industry. It’s a paying gig – modest, but fun, and it’s great to be working with the team at Wines.com again, who are an amicable (and smart, particularly when it comes to leveraging social media to engage their customers) bunch.

Does this mean fewer episodes of the already-too-infrequent 1WineDude TV?

The short answer is, “yeah, sort of.”

The Red, White & Blue PersonalWine.com Giveaway!

Vinted on July 2, 2010 binned in giveaways

Welcome to the 4th of July weekend, people!  Time to win some sweet shiz!

To celebrate Independence Day, PersonalWine.com (owned by the same folks who pay me to contribute to the Wine Crush Blog) have teamed up with me to give away a bottle of red, and a bottle of white – each personalized with the winner’s own design, and delivered in a classy sheer blue bag!

Specifically, the red is a 2006 Wattle Creek Syrah Winemaker’s Barrel Selection ($24), and the white is the 2008 Wattle Creek Sauvignon Blanc Barrel Selection ($26).  Both will come in the sweet blue bag pictured on the right, after you design your own super-cool label for your winnings.

Red, white & blue.

Get it?  C’mon, work with me here!

Anyway, winning is easy – here’s how it works:

  • Leave a comment on this post, describing what design you would go for if you had your own wine brand/label.
  • In one week, I will randomly choose a winner from the commenters, who will work with PersonalWine.com to design their prize!

To get us started, I used PersonalWine.com’s handy on-line label designer to upload a preview of one of the new 1WineDude.com review badges that will be coming to the website in the future (more on that in a future post), and create my own kick-ass wine label (literally kick-ass – see below).  Sneak peak after the jump.

Ok – get commentin’!…
