Well Aaron is currently standing down at New World chatting to customers and doing wine tastings. He was a bit nervous about whether people would be interested. He even took his cell phone so that if no-one came past he could pretend to text so that he didn’t have to look like a dork standing there alone, staring into space. The good news is that he’s been gone three hours now and I haven’t had any phone messages ;-)
He hopes to be able to share a bit of the Fiasco story with people. Most wine companies put a salesperson in to do store tastings as opposed to the winemaker so hopefully people will enjoy meeting the actual guy who made it. We certainly enjoy the connections we have locally.
This week I had the joy of giving a bottle of the Gewurztraminer to the teachers at my work who helped hand pick the grapes back in autumn. During the recent holiday break, a group of senior college students from Marlborough Girls’ and Marlborough Boys’ embarked on a History and Classics Alive trip of a lifetime to Greece, Italy and Turkey. They had to fundraise and this is where we played our small part. The photos below are of the students, parents and teachers hand picking the Gewurztraminer.
Social Sciences teacher Nic Ford – always happy to get involved!
Our son Finn enjoys the company of teenage girls!
I’d better go, Aaron has arrived back with a big grin on his face. He sold out of wine at New World and thoroughly enjoyed yarning to shoppers! We just had a phone call from a customer too, he said the wine tasted fantastic and that has made our day
