A Word from the Winemaker: Domaine O’Vineyard

4 Jan

We caught up with Domaine O’Vineyard‘s winemaker, Ryan O’Connell, to talk about the distinctive label on his Proprietor’s Reserve and this is what he has to say…

A lot of people ask why there’s a sad face on the Proprietor’s Reserve label. I usually explain that it’s my dad crying every time we sell a bottle because he can’t drink it himself. :D

But there’s a bit more to it. The drawing, like virtually all of our label art, comes from my sketches when we started O’Vineyards. It was an exciting time in my life because I went from being a wine-drinker to a wine-maker. Continue reading 

Our favorite wine comment in 2011!

2 Jan

Happy New Year and welcome to 2012! However a year isn’t complete without picking a favorite from all the wines that Corkbin users have added in 2011.

For 2011, our favorite wine comment was made by Sdmarics about a bottle of Hall Cabernet Sauvignon 2005:

” A celebration in your mouth, smooth and melts your soul.”

Do you have a favorite wine comment from 2011?

On the 6th Day of Christmas…

30 Dec

Now, calling Vodafone your true love may seem a bit far some, but we’re pretty darn happy with them and I’m betting that the residents of the Czech Republic will be too because today, Vodafone gave them Corkbin!

Vodafone is running a Christmas campaign where on each of the 12 days of Christmas, they give their users a free App. So – courtesy of Vodafone Czech, Corkbin is now free!

In the Czech Republic, go check out the Vodafone 12 days of Christmas App & download Corkbin for free. Shhh.. but for any of you outside of the Czech Republic, we’ve decided to make it free for everyone this Christmas, so get downloading!

I hope you enjoyed as much great wine this Christmas as we did and I’ll leave you with this rather-amusing Czech-language Vodafone commercial from last year… at least, I’m told it’s amusing!

 

See you in 2012,

The Corkbin Team
