Latest News From Smidge Wines
Not all superheroes wear capes. The coronavirus lockdown gave us a renewed respect and admiration for our healthcare, teachers and frontline workers who kept our communities running while the rest of us stayed home.
Suddenly our doctors, nurses, teachers and even supermarket staff were our first defence, and at Smidge, we wanted to do something to highlight their heroism.
Over the past four weeks, our Facebook followers nominated people whose efforts they admired during the pandemic. Each week, we chose a worthy recipient and sent them a two-pack of Smidge Wines to say thank you and pay it forward. We got such a kick out of it - it was a simple thing for us to do but we loved sending off those packs and hope all our recipients have enjoyed their wine.
Our worthy local super heroes were:
Helen M, a nurse from Norwood Day Surgery
Cherie P, a doctor at Victor Medical Centre
Liz T, an ELC teacher
Frank G, a nurse practitioner
We were overwhelmed by the number of nominations we received, and it quite brightened our isolation to read through such inspirational examples. We’d like to thank everyone who recommended someone.
We’re trying something a bit different in May.
With the Smidge Wines Cellar Door still closed due to the Covid-19 lockdown, we’re holding a Virtual Wine Tasting for our S Club members on Saturday May 16.
The hookup will be held as a Zoom meeting and all S Club members are invited.
While the ‘cellar door’ will be virtual, the wine will be very real.
As part of membership to S Club, we’re sending out two bonus bottles of wine to all our members valued at more than $75 - the Uno Momento McLaren Vale Montepulciano and a mystery cleanskin.
During the virtual masterclass and Matt will explain the origins of Montepulciano, the story behind Uno Momento and why the McLaren Vale is such a good area for this varietal.
Matt will then take us through a Wine Options game to reveal the mystery cleanskin.
We’d love you to join us! Joining S Club starts at just $149 for your first 6 x pack, with two wine deliveries a year, priority invitations to events, a wine concierge service and free delivery on all orders. Join before May 14, and receive your bonus bottles for our masterclass tasting.
