Many people have asked me how the The Smiling Grape Company name came about. I’m trying hard to remember – it could have been from that dream where I was dressed as a Roman Emperor and a smiling Carmen Electra was feeding me grapes or was it that lightening strike moment of genius after too many glasses of a New Zealand Pinot Noir? It could only be a name better than ‘Slurp & Spit International’…
The Smiling Grape Company name seemed ideal as:
- My nickname has always been “Smiler” and yes, it’s true I’m always SMILING – it must be the wine! And blimey, you should see me at funerals…
- Wine is made from a GRAPE (quite a few) or so I was told by a customer last week. Also a big thank you to Andrew who brought me his latest batch of runner bean wine to taste (my eyes are watering just thinking of it…)
- Erm…we are a COMPANY
Wow…it’s that simple!
Keep smiling and drinking the wine!
