Well it’s official – Fiasco Wines has now secured it’s first sponsorship deal. We are the proud sponsers of Mortisha the Turkey. Mortisha was found wild in Blenheim just prior to Christmas. It is still a mystery as to how she came to be checking out the shops. There was a complete fiasco as a capture was attempted and for a time she escaped, ironically to the roof of a pet shop. Eventually she was caught and taken in by the local radio station, More FM – who decided to keep her as a mascot, saving her from anyone who had ideas of a tasty Christmas dinner. Now this was a fiasco we couldn’t resist, and we like to do things a bit differently…and so it is that this turkey is the first ever to be sponsored by a wine company.
So what does the sponsorship involve for us? Well we want to see Moretisha well looked after so we contribute to her upkeep but have and will also supply wine prizes at the various events/causes Moretisha appears at with More FM. The Pets Day Out helped the SPCA and the Relay for Life is an awesome event to help the Cancer Society. In return we are getting some great exposure from Jamie, Nige & the team at More FM… and of course Moretisha herself is said (gobbled?) to prefer Fiasco over all other wines!
