Monthly Love: July

We’re proud collectors of every tweet from every fan we ever get on Twitter, but quite honestly we’d be completely happy if all of those tweets consisted of Maurice O’Mahony’s “Yummmmmmmmmmr” praise. (He’s waxing eloquent about our rich Betton, but we’d like to think it applies to all our wines.) To add to our ego-puffing …

Monthly Love: June

Yes we are slackers, but we do genuinely love our ardent Curious fans and so Monthly Love is back with a bang. (Our apologies for being tardy the last few months – we were waylaid by a warehouse full of wine.) The New Zealand wine tasting event went down a treat with the punters; Robert …

Monthly Love: February

In keeping with the theme for the month, February was a virtual love-in for Curious Wines! We’ll be playing Stairway to Heaven on endless repeat and passing out the joss sticks any minute now. Wine reviewer Blake Creedon made our month (and possibly our year) when Curious Wines got full fun of his weekly column, …

Monthly Love: January

2009 has already been chock full of delight for Curious Wines – we kicked off with a bang when we found out we’ve been short listed for a Digital Media Award in the Best Commercial Website category. We’re super-excited and looking forward to the awards night on 13 February to see if we’ll be cracking …

Monthly Love: December

If we’re a little late with this month’s Monthly Love, it’s because we’re staggering under the sheer weight of all the fabulous things said about Curious Wines as 2008 closed out. December kicked off with a hell of a bang when Blake Creedon, one of the top wine writers in Ireland and an Irish Examiner …

Two Glasses of Wine

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 glasses of wine… A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very …

Monthly Love: November

November’s been a smashing month at Curious. Since we’ve taken the site out of soft launch and into the big, bad public marketplace, we’ve had amazing feedback from such a wide range of people. We’re having a great time on Twitter, making friends with wine lovers around the globe and having excellent exchanges about everyone’s …

Curious Goes Live

So the curiously named Curious, our brand spanking new wine blog, is live. Eight months from setting pencil to the grand plan for Curious Wines – including the vision of a website to set the standard in Irish wine retailing – our fabulous and enduringly tolerant web designer had had enough of my nit-picking and …
