blogger's wine freebie 2345


[UPDATED SEPTEMBER 22, 2005: The promo is now CLOSED. To see how other bloggers reacted to receiving their wine freebie, please visit the wiki.] [This page translated into French here.]

In order to give you guys a better idea about what I'm doing with Stormhoek, I've been allowed to give out some free samples.

Anybody want a free bottle of the pre-release 2005? Then you can find out what the whole "Freshness" angle means first hand.

(Stormhoek bottle arrived in mail with Name and Individual Number etc.)

Three things are needed.

1. You have to live in France [the UK and Irish freebies are now closed, sorry].

2. You have to be a blogger over 18 years old, with a regularly updated blog at least 3 months old.

3. You have to send me an e-mail with the words "Blogger's Wine Freebie 2345" in the title (the "2345" number makes it easier to keep track of the e-mails and makes them harder to get lost etc.).

Please include your full name, your blog URL, your mailing address (including the country), and a written statement that confirms both that you're over 18 and your date of birth.

You're under no obligation to blog about Stormhoek in exchange for the free bottle, of course. I just thought making it "Bloggers Only" would be a neat idea.

But if you want to tell your friends and readers about this freebie offer over the next wee while, that would be really cool. Share the love etc. Thanks.

(gratuitous product shot- hooray!)

If some lawyer comes breathing down my neck, I reserve the right to change the conditions of the offer.

It'll be interesting to hear what the blogosphere has to say. I hope to hear from you. Thanks again.

Hey Hugh,

Great cartoon - lmao. I'd sign up for the wine but i'm in the states and my liver cannot take it anymore. Good luck!

PS - I'd be interested to learn more about sig's pr/marketing of software on the net. My experience so far is that I am singing to the chior and that old fashioned called calling still works the best. Please tell me you've got an angle.

The heck with my liver, I'm in the given up life group anyway, so bring on the wine! But, I'm in the States too, so I guess I'll have to just whine instead of wine.

Hey Jim and Rod,

Once Stormhoek launches in the States (not sure when exactly, but I think within a few months) I hope to repeat the same offer on your side of the pond. So watch this space etc.

Hey, too bad you don't ship to Belgium... I'm a wine lover and a gapingvoid lover at the same time ;)

Yeah - me too. Can I have one if I pay for the shipping to New Zealand? Or buy another excellent t-shirt? :)
