Wine Nerds Only

WARNING: The following deep dive content is for wine nerds only! LOL


Here is a partial and growing list of people and things we are particularly grateful for (not already mentioned within the site) that we would like to thank.

Val Littlewood

The LF image and identity all started with a sketch of a beetroot that Val crafted and the rest is history. Val resides in her home country of England with her husband and is most passionate about bees. She really likes wine too. http://pencilandleaf.blogspot.com/

Jeremy & Michelle Ball, Bottle Branding

"What aren't they good at?" is perhaps the suitable question. http://www.bottlebranding.com/

DIAM

Corks. Why they believe in using only DIAM, no cork taint & no bottle variation.
