Now is probably a good time to suggest a staycation for Melbourne mofos (and winter is coming-style hibernation mofos)!  I mean, even temporarily? Especially when you can enjoy the best thing (a.k.a. wine) the whole world has to offer from the comfort of your couch (or your bed – you do you).

To get a fully immersive experience, we’ll even let you know the temperature to set the AC to and a winning local movie you can throw on in the background, so it’s like you’re really there! Fun!

So put your tray table up, strap yourself in as we do a quick 360 around the world, without even leaving the house.

Argentina 

The land of the tango, soccer, Eva Perón and some of the best reds on the planet.

Drink: These stratospheric drops. High in altitude and high in fab.

Watch: The fast-paced con caper about one last score, Nueve Reinas (Nine Queens).

Climate Control: to 22 degrees

USA 

Trump is out, and the U S of A is kinda cool again. From the jazz hands of Hollywood to the culture (and chicken) of the south, there’s something for everyone. Luckily you don’t have to leave your house for a taste.

Drink: Like the folks of the Wild Wild West with this swag.

Watch: Really set the scene with the beautiful, twisted and stylish Westworld – Season 1.

Climate Control: to 19 degrees

New Zealand

That warm feeling of the nicest people on earth living in the most naturally diverse land is closer than you think.

Drink: This. Deep, rich, intense.

Watch: The delightful Hunt for the Wilderpeople. Try not to spit out your wine in laughter.

Climate Control: to 14 degrees (brrr)

South Africa

Giraffes. Need we say more?

Drink: This shale number from a truly unique terroir. 

Watch: The low-budget, high fun, alien-fest, District 9.

Climate Control: to 27 degrees

Australia

Did you know 75% of us haven’t seen more than 27% of our own country? Okay. Those stats were made up. But it’s true. So go get some of that Great Southern Land. Now.

Drink: Our Collaboration Case – funky and tasty wines made in collaboration with our favourite winemakers. 

Watch: Muriel's Wedding. An absolute classic with catchy tunes to boot.

Climate Control: to 26 degrees

Seriously

At Vinomofo, we love our wine, but we like to also lead long and happy lives, and be good to the world and the people in it. We all try to drink responsibly, in moderation, and we really hope you do too.

Don’t be that person…
