Wine Videos: Funny, Interesting or Blah?

January 2, 2013 18 comments

Happy New Year to All!

I decided to start the new year with something fun and simple – wine videos. Actually, it appears that it is not that simple to find even semi-decent videos, so I’m curious what you would think of the videos below.

Martini Prosecco (?!) Commercial:

Stacked Wine Commercial (I actually saw it in the store, and it looks pretty neat, but I didn’t taste it):

Beringer commercial:

And Georgian wine commercial:

So, which one is your favorite? Cheers!

Wine Videos: Don’t Do This At Home, Kids

June 14, 2012 4 comments

Last week we compared wine video commercials from some of the major Champagne brands (in case you missed that post, you can find it here). Today I’m not asking you to rate the videos. Just watch and learn… or not (one of the videos is definitely giving me an urge to actually try it at home). In these videos you will see how professionals deal (meaning: open) with champagne bottles. This method  of opening the champagne bottle is  called sabering, and if you never heard of it before, just watch the videos (you can also read about some history of champagne sabering here).

First one is showing champagne bottles being opened in a rapid succession to achieve a world record:

The second video shows how sabering can be done with just a regular glass instead of a sword. While it looks easy and effortless in this video, make no mistake – it does require good amount of skill.

If you will be brave and try it at home, let me know how you will make out! Cheers!

Wine Videos: Big League Sparklers Showdown

June 7, 2012 5 comments

Continuing the “sparklers” theme, I want to offer you three commercials from the big league Champagne.

First, a commercial for Veuve Clicquot:

I’m not sure if the next video is really a commercial, it looks more as a tribute by Dom Perginon to Andy Warhol – but in any case it is a wine video:

And last but not least is a commercial for my all times favorite Champagne – Krug:

What the verdict is going to be? Any preferences? Cheers!

 

Wine Videos: Sparklers Showdown

It’s being a couple of weeks since we watched (and judged, of course) some wine commercials. Continuing that thread (I hope you find it entertaining!), I would like to offer you two videos to compare.

First one is a commercial for Domaine Chandon, makers of California Sparking wine:

And the second one is a commercial for Italian sparkler – Zonin Prosecco:

Which one is your favorite? Let me know! Cheers!

Let’s Look At Some Wine Videos [Again]

May 15, 2012 2 comments

It seems that Wine Videos almost becoming a feature on this blog – well, I’m not sure it will be possible to continue this trail indefinitely. After all, I only share the wine videos which cause at least some emotional resonance on my side – you shouldn’t expect to see dumb ads with flat voices here. But – as long as we are having fun, why not?

So for today let’s start with Australia (yes, again Australia, I know – but I promise that the next one will not be from Chile) – it is for the wine called Wild Oats:

The next one is from Portugal, and it is an ad for Sandeman Port (yes, it is not from Chile, but – it has a train in it):

To tell you the truth, I find both of them interesting – but what are your preferences?

Enjoy! Cheers!

More Wine Commercials – Which One Do You Prefer Now?

May 8, 2012 3 comments

Last week I asked you about your preferences between Concha y Toro Frontera and Yellow Tail commercials. Continuing the same subject, here are couple more for you to chose from. Let’s do Australia versus Chile again.

First, a commercial for another Australian wine, Yalumba:

And for Chilean, here is a commercial for Casillero del Diablo:

And this one is just for laughs…

So, what do you think now? Cheers!

Which One Would You Prefer?

May 3, 2012 8 comments

While researching information for the new post, I came across these two videos. Both are representing best selling wines in US or may be even in the world. One of the them is for Yellow Tail wine from Australia, and the second one is for Frontera by Concha y Toro from Chile. Based on the videos, which wine would you prefer?

Here is Yellow Tail video:

And here is Frontera by Concha y Toro:

So, tell me – based on these commercials, which one would you prefer? I have my preferences, but I’m not telling until you do…

The Amazing Power Of Wine

Saw a great video in the Dr. Vino wine blog – can’t help it, but I have to re-post. Anyone dares to repeat?

Have a wine and fun filled weekend, everyone. Cheers!

Some Wine Fun for April 1st

April 1, 2012 4 comments

To celebrate International Fun [Fools] Day, I really wanted to write some serious post about, for instance, Chateau Petrus and Screaming Eagle wines available for sale in New York only for a day for $49.99, but – I’m not sure it would be that funny. I always admire great stories which look borderline real, put together for April 1st issues – like this one by Dr. Vino, or special reports in a Scientific American magazine, like this one – but sorry, I don’t have a talent to create a story like that on my own. Of course you don’t need to wait for the April 1st – you can find some [seriously] twisted wine fun in the Hose Master Of Wine blog at any day, but this usually goes way too far for me, so enter on your own risk.

Anyway, I feel like we need to celebrate April 1st, so I would like to offer you a video, which some of you probably saw before, but nevertheless – hopefully, it will put you in the right mood. Enjoy!

Have a great fun day and have fun with your wines. Cheers!
