Champion Internet identity The Wandering Poet (or is it actually Andy Kaufman reborn... hmmmm?) began a Twitter edumacational series "Letters to Conrad". I must admit that we weren't convinced about Twitter in the beginning, and maybe one of us even threw the towel in on it, but it has actually become quite a fun and interesting networking tool that has given our blog just a tiny bit more exposure (we can do with all we can get ;-) )
So check out his Letters to Conrad series and, for a bit of a laugh, his #Wine #Wankers Webisode
I had one of those “do I or don’t I?” moments with this one. It’s the whole “Is it really blog-worthy?” or maybe more so “Can I even be bothered?” I do know that some people really enjoy blogging all the time about everything that comes to mind, and that works well for them.
Some wine bloggers like to detail all the wine they consume, and that’s fair enough too, but that could be a lot of work indeed (not saying that it would necessarily be a lot of work for myself or anything )
We here at The Wine Wankers prefer to write about our more interesting wine experiences that at least tell a bit of a story rather than it being a detailed description and rating of each individual wine we consume. This particular wine experience was a borderline one and very touch-and-go but in the end I saw just enough blog-worthy signs to get it over the publishing line.
Ahhhh, the Hunter Valley Shiraz. The poor thing has been kicked in the guts more than a dud race horse. At one point there it was felt by many non-fans to only be the domain of the over-patriotic New South Welshmen. Those from the southern states shunned it, and many still do, to their own detriment! The Hunter Shiraz has changed, well not really, it has returned to it's roots.
We recently returned from a holiday in South America and thought it blog-worthy to give an overview of the food and wine experiences (in 3 parts, see part 1 and part 2).
The second half of our 10 day stay in Buenos Aires, a leisurely length of time to soak up the atmosphere of this grand old city.
Day 6 – A long walk from Palermo Hollywood to Recoleta to see the number one tourist attraction in BA; Cementerio Recoleta. This is an incredible cemetery that was dedicated in 1822 in the garden of a convent. This place has a real ethereal and calm feel about it and it was divine to wander around the Continue reading →
We were recently approached by a representative of an online bottle shop asking if we’d accept some wine in return for blogging about it and mentioning them. It was like “Huh, what, someone wants to send us wine?”.
So we really had to think about this very carefully. It was a long process that went something like this…
“Hey, someone wants to send us some wine to taste and blog about, should we be doing this” Continue reading →
Yummy! I love learning something new about wine. One of my favorite wine blogs wrote about a sparkling shiraz recently and I was immediately intrigued. A what? A sparkling shiraz? Hmmmm. Here's the link http://thewinewankers.com.au/2013/11/12/sparkling-shiraz-the-perfect-pizza-wine/ So after running around for the past two weeks, I finally got lucky and bumped into one of my favorite wine store owners, Michelle, from Cork and Cow and mentioned to her my quest.
LOL!!! These man flowers actually came from my own veggie patch as you can see behind the wine in this shot...
Stu is really busy with his personal training business and his studies so you probably won't see him around The Wine Wankers too often. Our wine blog can be all too consuming at times. So make sure to head over and visit his My Fitness Mentor health and fitness blog.
