It excludes, is overly complicated, pretentious and expensive. Rather drink beer and craft gin and tonics, right?
Well sure, because they’re accessible and easy to understand.
But here’s the clincher. So is wine.
In truth, wine is wonderful. But somewhere along the line, the industry began talking to themselves, and forgot about the rest of us. So the idea came late one night over a glass of wine, like all good ideas do.
We are young.
We are female.
We are in the wine industry.
And we believe in making wine welcoming. We’re not here to talk to other wine people. We’re here to talk to YOU. Because you are a real human being, and so are we, and that’s who wine is made for.
And so we bring you Glou Glou. Why Glou Glou? As a bit of an onomatopeoic neologism made up one day by a French man (probably), Glou Glou means drinkability. It’s wines that don’t pretend to be high seriousness, but nor are they lightweight or dismissable. Much like us – two women working in the wine industry, with a shared background in wine business and media.
Glou Glou is not just a blog – it is a sounding board for a new conversation we want to start outside of the wine tank. It’s a reflection of our insights into the wine lifestyle industry, and a digital meeting point for accessible, relevant and simple information on wine.
We’re thirsty – to learn. Are you?
