Taittinger champagne and Villa Maria from New Zealand are sponsoring this year’s BAFTA awards. From anyone outside these shores that’s the British Academy of Film & Television Arts awards. It’s the big night in film and TV for the British, so only right that there’s plenty of booze on hand to celebrate and commiserate in equal measures!
Right guys and girls, over the last few days, weeks, and months we’ve thrown out everything you need to know about the competition here. You’ve now only got til the end of today to get your entries in to wine a Lazenne WineCheck filled with delicious Piemontese wines!
We’re closing in towards the end of the competition we’re running to give away a Lazenne WineCheck of 12 bottles of amazing Piemontese wines. This week it’s time to highlight the work and wines of our penultimate winemaker, Fabrizio Francone from Neive, whose vineyards are a great place to tour and taste great wines!
Just found out yesterday that I won the Millesima Blog Award. The irony that I won the Wine & Technology category in Europe despite the fact that I was struggling to find the correct link to post so people could vote was not lost on me, but sod it, I’ve won it now, they can’t take it back (I hope). So in true Oscar Week style, just got a couple of thanks to throw out there…
For the next four weeks of the posts on the Great Piemontese Wine Giveaway I’m going to be dedicating a blog to each of the four (exceptionally kind) producer that have volunteered to be part of this and have each donated 3 bottles of their great wines to fill up the Lazenne Winecheck for the big prize. First up it’s the man, the myth, and the growing legend that is Enrico Rivetto!
Ok guys and girls, you really REALLY want to read this post! As I mentioned in a pre cursor last week, I’ve teamed up with Valeire from the Girls Gotta Drink blog, and the team behind Lazenne wine luggage to offer an incredible wine giveaway. This week’s post gives the overview of the set up, what there is to win, and how you enter. Honestly, there’s a bag full of amazing (and free!!) wine for the winner. Get stuck in!
Afternoon all. The fine folks at Les Dauphins got in touch recently and asked if I’d like to offer you all the chance to head on down to the Taste of London in Regent’s Park in a few weeks. Well I wasn’t going to say no was I?
