A BIG THANKS TO…:
LANEWAY LEARNING: Cheap, fun classes in anything and everything. Non for profit, run by some of the most dedicated people around. Laneway Learning helped the Humble Tumbler get off the ground – thank you! Oh and hit up the homepage to see a neat little video featuring Clare.
EMIPIRE CREATIVE GROUP: Gareth & Clare at Empire CG designed this website + all the branding for the Humble Tumbler and Eminence Wines. They’re a full service design agency who are absolutely fantastic to work with. We can’t love them enough!
KRIS WASHUSEN: Takes all our event pics and RAS NORLING took the portraits of Miro, James & Fred. Both great photographers and total legends!
CLIK MARKETING: Built this (and the Eminence Wines) website. Simon is wonderful to work with – we wouldn’t be here without him!
TIME OUT MAGAZINE: Time Out Melbourne is your go-to directory for events, openings, shopping, culture, music, food, drink and arts…basically pretty much anything that’s happening in this great city. Great themed issues too + affordable subscription. Go!
HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION MAGAZINE: The ideal choice for wine lovers – rather than dedicated academics. Published 6 times a year and takes a fresh, stylish and uniquely approachable take on wine, food and travel. We love their work! Available at all good newsagencies.
BLOGS – WINE REVIEWS & TECHNICAL
VINO FREAKISM: Dave Brookes doesn’t allocate points/scores on his blog (which we think is great). This site shares a wealth of quality writing & great reviews, leaning towards all things ‘natural’ . Great reviews on sake too.
WINE WILL EAT ITSELF: Jeremy Pringle writes a no-nonsense wine review blog which keeps things concise & clear, accross all wine categories.
VINODIVERSTY: More a reference site, Vinodiversity is a portal for information on alternative grape varieties. It’s dense but incredibly useful.
BLOGS – WINE / LIFESTYLE
EMINENCE WINES: Check our Clare’s other life over at Eminence Wines – where she writes a blog on various things, including small goods, vintage reports and a Gin & Tonic cake recipe. Seriously.
ANDREA FROST: is an accomplished writer in her own right, and it is just plain lucky she loves wine. Her site New Ruby Press is a breath of fresh air. She’s also written a wonderful hardcover book and contributes to the Melbourne Review.
LA DONNA DEL VINO: Krystina Menegazzo (who manages the wine side of things for King & Godfree in Carlton) writes this lovely little blog. She reviews three wines per month and shares little stories of other adventures in between.
