We all love winning free stuff, right? And when it’s free entry to a food and drink festival it’s even sweeter for us wine-o’s and food geeks…
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!
Last year I was asked to enter a blog into the Millesima Blog Awards. It kind of came out the blue and I didn’t really know what the team at Millesima were after by asking me. I get a bit panicky when I think things look too easy or too good to be true. But dear me I’m glad I bit the bullet and did it. And fast forward 12 months and it’s open for entries for the 2017 award, and I can’t encourage enough to get some entries in there!
I’ve got more things to write about my recent trip out to Bordeaux than you can shake a stick at! As one of the winners of the Millesima Blog Awards, I was VIP’ed all the way around Bordeaux for the week with my 5 amazing fellow winners, all looked after brilliantly by the teams at Millesima and Bernard Magrez.
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!
If anything, I’m not sure why I’m bothering with a “Coming Up On…” post today. If it’s anything like last week then it’ll be out of the window by Wednesday regardless. A mixture of Jury Service, trying to get two start-up companies off the ground, market trading, chasing up logistics companies…well, you get the point. My routine has been seriously messed up!
Tough old week last week as a couple of bits of news knocked me and my annoying anxiety issue all over again. I’ll get onto that news some other time, but thankfully it only took 2 days to get my head back straight this time. That’s pretty big progress for me!
Anyone fancy winning some free wine??? Thought that’d get your attention! Coming up is an intro to a competition I’m going to be running with a couple of other guys and girls to win some fantastic wines from Piemonte.
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?
