Event attendance and Visits
It enthuses me to receive invites for any event related to beverages, both alcoholic and non alcoholic. Please feel free to send me such invites through email or by post minimum a week/two weeks in advance for local/outstation events. A ‘block your date’ mailer prior to the formal invite would be even better! However, I do understand contingencies where events may be organised at short notice. I will make sincere efforts to attend the concerned events in such cases.
Coverage of events however is not guaranteed and will be incumbent on their value in relevance to the quality and content on Guns 2 Gewurztraminer.
Press Invitations to Visit Wineries and Wine Regions
I love to visit wine and spirits regions to learn about them and share the information with my readers. As a media entity, I have visited Champagne, Bordeaux, Provence, The Rhône Valley and Beaujolais in France, Friuli, Veneto and Tuscany in Italy, Catalunya and La Rioja in Spain and Vienna and Burgenland in Austria. (See ‘Travelogue’ section in the main menu bar for a glimpse of my travels).
For any proposed visits, I would appreciate at least 8 weeks notice along with the detailed itinerary to enable suitable planning. But I do understand those occasional instances when plans come together with shorter notice. Please feel free to contact me to check my availability and requirements.
Judging Wine and Spirits Competitions
Having been hands-on with wine and spirits for several years, I take it as an onerous responsibility to contribute with my skills towards facilitating recognition of talent. I am happy to accept invitations for judging competitions that have substantial takeaways for contestants towards their career progression. Please feel free to contact me with any such proposals providing their details. A minimum notice period of 8 weeks/4 weeks for international/Indian competitions would be highly appreciated.
All costs related to attendance of respective events/fixtures as enunciated above will be borne by the inviting agency. These will include travel stay and living costs for the requisite number of days as per industry standard protocol. For clarifications if any, please send me an email specifying the queries.
