Gamay fermented in amphora. A rosé mashing together pinot noir and chardonnay. One of Western Australia’s earliest barrel-fermented sauvignon blancs. Denmark-based winemaker Paul Nelson, the namesake and co-owner of Paul Nelson Wines, has a habit of doing things outside of the box. His latest announcement, however, takes it up another notch.
While stocks last, Paul Nelson Wines is giving away free sixpacks to anyone who purchases vouchers (valued at $150 or more) for West Australian restaurants and wine bars.
The offer sells itself, really: buy a voucher; send Paul Nelson Wines an email or Instagram DM with a photo of your voucher or receipt; then they send you a mixed sixpack with three whites (riesling) and three reds (a mix of gamay and touriga nacional, a grape better known for its role in port wines).
The initiative, says Nelson, is all about looking after his mates in the hospitality industry affected by the coronavirus.
“For us, it’s about the long-term,” he says. “It’s not about making a buck now. We need people to be there when everything finishes and supporting the places they love to eat and drink at. We’re just trying to do our bit to help keep hospitality venues operational.”
