Bottles screwed, winemaker shagged

 First up – a disclaimer on the post title.  I am only responding to reader demand, my blog stats show heaps of you read about ‘wank free wine’ and very few read the post about tax.  And so you have forced me to use the ‘sex sells’ approach…prepare to be disappointed 😉

1000 cases (12000 bottles!) of wine have now successfully been bottled.  At 6 pm last night Aaron arrived home  – crook – he tried to taste one of the new bottles and his nose was so blocked he might as well have been having water – with that he crashed into bed. 

Being the good wife that I am, I promptly whipped up some home made chicken soup, patted him down with a luke warm flannel and took some panadol to his bedside.   Nah – I did the ‘man-flu test’, decided he was fine and took off to my ladies night with Robyn Malcolm.  For those uninitiated to married life, the ‘man-flu test’ is very simple, just ask if they want food or sex – if they say yes to either, it’s man flu, ie your average cold 😉

 And this morning he is still crook and not going to work.  I am sleep deprived from my late but most enjoyable night with Robyn Malcolm AND from that snoring!  I figure posting it on you tube makes us even…if there’s no more posts you’ll know we’ve had a full on domestic fiasco and the business is all over! 

I’ll leave you with some shots of the wine being labelled at WBM (Wine Bottlers Marlborough) – who were fantastic.

    Congrats Fiasco – the bottles look fab! Will I see your label on Aussie shelves? Can’t wait to unscrew and sample. That winemaker guy is a snoring beauty!

    Yep we hope to get some to Aussie but more through website orders than in supermarkets at this stage. Had a catch up with Sarah’s Aunty Cherie the other day (luckily she has forgiven Aaron for calling her ‘a good ole trout’ after too many on the winetrail)and she is involved with exporting wine and can take care of the packaging, tax rules etc. She said Aussies were the biggest buyers of the NZ wine she sells. She has her own website for orders that we will list on soon. It’s at Marlborough Wine Tours if you want to have a looksee.

    P.S Hey did you hear Jode’s news? If not, check your e-mails!

    If you’d like to organise paying your 10% tithe, I’d be happy to pass it on to God for you…. hmmmm, 10% of 12,000 bottles….
    let us know where / when us Aucklanders can buy it.
    Loving the man-flu test, have used that in the past myself, it never fails!
