The picton fiasco

At the end of last year we had quite a bit of luck and managed to get our white wines into Air New Zealand Koru Clubs across the country.  This offers great exposure for us, as far as tourists and the like go. So, we thought it would be good to get a bit of leverage from this locally.  We don’t or didn’t have a presence in Picton, so we thought this would be a good place to start because of the tourism associated with the ferries at the local port.

As we don’t have any distributors for the north or the top of the south island, we hit the road and do it ourselves…..

Yesterday I came up with the hair-brained idea…’I’ll go to Picton with the camera and show everyone how hard it can be breaking into new territory’…….Things are pretty tough, wine labels aren’t exactly scarce and things are pretty quiet on the restaurant scene.  

 Anyhow, I must confess what took place was a bit of a shambles.  We hear you when you say we expect nothing else(lol)! Decided I would give a brief intro to you guys and gals then stroll into the restaurant with the camera strategically placed.  I didn’t actually want to film anyone, just try and capture some of the conversation.  Once inside the din was incredible and the camera was all over the place….a real Fiasco.

Anyhow, the good news is it looks like we just may have found three new homes for our Fiascowines….fingers crossed.

I’d give up about the 3 minute mark, and really I profusely APOLOGISE FOR THE NASAL HAIRS !!
