Printhie in the Twitterverse

To be really honest the Printhie crew is not the most tech-savvy bunch of people in the wine industry. However, we have taken quite a liking to Twitter. So what do three young-ish wine types who grow grapes, make wine and then take their wines around the world have to say in the ‘Twitterverse’.

What we tweet

All sorts of stuff. News from Printhie, what’s happening in the vineyard or the winery, new wine releases and reviews, where we are travelling to and our experiences, upcoming events in Australia and overseas, web-site updates, our opinions of wines we have tasted, our opinions on wine business issues and, for something completely different, results from the local football team we play with and from the NSW Swifts Netball team whom we sponsor. There’s usually something everyday.

Who we follow

Wine people – not exclusively but a fair majority of people we follow are in the wine business. This includes other wine producers, wine journalists, wine retailers and wine bloggers. It’s a great way for us to keep up with the gossip, news and trends in the wine business. Of course, there are a few loyal Printhie customers we also follow. After that it gets a bit more personal. We are big cycling fans, we stay up late at night to watch the Tour de France and follow the successes, injuries and fortunes of our favourite cyclists and their teams like some others may follow the NFL or English Premier League on Twitter. Speaking of football (soccer), as dedicated players of the game we have been following the rollercoaster that is the World Cup. It will be a short-lived affair and tweeting football will end with the World Cup but that’s one of the great things about Twitter.

Twitter conversations

The best part of Twitter is having conversations, so we always check out the tweets that have mentioned @printhiewines even if it is from tweeters that we don’t regularly follow. So we would love to get a tweet from you and join in the Twitterverse conversation.

You can follow us @printhiewines

@WinePeloton #epic #cycling was from Orange, over the Blue Mountains, to Penrith on the outskirts of Sydney. Why? Life is short
