McLaren Vale, Australia, August 1, 2011— What’s in a name? You tell us. Mollydooker, the fun-filled Australian winery, is on a worldwide search for the perfect name for its newest wine. The winning name will forever be displayed on the label of their new Sparkling Shiraz and will become part of the flavorful family of award winning Mollydooker wines.
“Four years ago we asked our friends to help us name our charity wine”, said Sarah Marquis, who with her husband Sparky, founded Mollydooker. “The winners (who suggested ‘Sip it Forward’) came to our USA release parties as our guests, and we all had a ball.”
“This time we want to make it even more special, so we are opening the contest up world wide, and we will ﬂy the winner and a guest to visit us at the winery in Australia.”
“The new wine is going to be a partner to The Boxer Shiraz, which is our most popular wine,” explained Sarah. “We have kept a tankful of Boxer at the winery, and we will be re-fermenting it to make a Sparkling Shiraz. At $25 it is going to be lots of fun – a wine full of rich, long lasting fruit ﬂavors and tiny ﬁzzy bubbles. We see it as an ideal companion for a party, a BBQ, or any kind of celebration. All we are missing is the name, and we are asking for help with that.”
“We are really looking forward to bringing the winners to Australia,” added Sparky, “we’ll be taking them through the winery and showing them how we make the wine, and they will get to walk in the vineyards where the wine they named was grown. If they come during harvest, they will even be able to sit under the gum trees with us, hand crushing grapes and tasting the juices, and helping us decide when to pick. We live in a beautiful part of the world, and we are looking forward to sharing it with them.”
