I know I can't possibly hope to match the enthusiasm engendered by Tom's polo shirt idea: that was always going to appeal to the forum's snazzy dresser brigade. I did however suggest to Tom that some forum members may be more interested in trying new wines than upgrading their attire. So I have come up with an idea to sell a selection of fine Riverby wines to Forum members with Tom to receive a generous percentage of the sales. I am just initially gauging whether there is any interest in the idea. My initial thoughts are to offer a six pack of 3 Riverby 2018 Chardonnay and 3 Riverby 2019 Pinot Noir. The Chard is £20 per bottle and the Pinot Noir is £24. There would be a freight cost of £10. So £142 all up for that particular combo. Tom rated both wines 92 in his visit to NZ earlier this year. As some of you may know 2019 is a great NZ vintage. I have never had a Pinot that has drunk well from the moment it has been bottled before, and I have certainly never released a Pinot this young. It is only available in the UK market so far. For those of you who would otherwise have tried these wines at Tom's festivals this is a chance to try them at home and contribute to a good cause at the same time. People would just order directly through my importers, The Black Dog Wine Agency, and mention that they are on the forum. There are obviously limited stocks of these wines, esp the Chard, so first in first served. We could do a similar deal with some of our other wines and I could send some more wine over in due course if this goes well. So for now I am just gauging if there is any interest. I know its not as exciting as a polo shirt. I do think both wines are some of the very best we have ever made.
