Wine Lady film review - Bobule, innocently about wine

There is something interesting about some of the non-famous, non-US productions that make me feel like I’m among the characters, such as I’m one of them, almost actively participating in their lives.

Winey Kids, McLaren Vale Little Explorer – a wine booklet for children

‘Mammy, Mammy, I want to read my book about vineyards!’ 5-year-old boy asked loudly pointing something on the bookshelf with his little finger. ‘Not now, darling, we’ll read at home’ an elegant woman replied still looking at the bottles of wine on the shelf. ‘But I want to read NOW’ the kid dabbed his mouth to the glass pane and puffed on it. A few seconds later he drew something on the foggy glass. This something looked […]

I’d like to introduce to you some of the pictures from a photographic exhibition in National Wine Centre, Adelaide, SCREW by […]
