I’m a big fan of lying in on Saturday and Sunday mornings and catching up on my reading. One of the blogs I regularly follow, Girl +Beer has a fabulous idea! Every Thurs/Fri she pops up a post about interesting articles and news bits and pieces for her readers to check out over the weekend. I love the idea so I wanted to give it a go here!
I’ll include news stories, videos, image galleries and more to help both you and I keep up with what’s going on in the wine world and who knows we may even learn a new thing or two about wine. So really this is a very educational exercise.
Also I will admit that in this edition I have included some shameless plugs for guest posts I have written for other online publications, which I promise are just as interesting as the rest!
So welcome to Wino Weekend Reading edition 1!
Punch Drink – Behold a Calendar of Nude French Wine Harvesters
I actually saw this on social media awhile ago and it gave me such a good laugh! It gives a bit of humour to the French wine scene which can seem a bit stuffy to some. Good on them I say! Now when’s the Aussie version coming out??
Perth Champagne Club – 13 Reasons Why Billecart-Salmon Champagne is the Epitome of Luxury
This was a guest post I wrote for the lovely peeps at PCC. I am a huge fan of Billecart-Salmon Champagne and I actually had the pleasure of selling it when I was working in Dubai. This article was a fun research project for me and I now feel like an ace at Billecart knowledge, bring on the Billecart questions at the next quiz night!
