Goodbye Farrah

I chose the Faberge shampoo commercial campaign (from the seventies) as my Murphy-Goode "gimmick" for my one-minute video application. How sad that we lost Farrah Facett today...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1NKEdHLbBkmy take:http://www.areallygoodejob.com/video-view.aspx?vid=Blhk8rtgd9son this:…See More

Apple of My Eye

Years ago, I worked as a Personal Assistant for a couple in Beverly Hills. If you've seen the movie "A Devil Wears Prada" you get the gist - lots of perks but, at the end of some days, your biggest accomplishment was "getting the sandwich right".



I will never forget the day when I went to the grocery store and picked out what I thought to be the most insanely gorgeous apples ever. I displayed them perfectly in a bowl on the counter at the… Continue

Old School Meets New School

I think what the folks over at Murphy-Goode and their team are doing is genius (www.areallygoodejob.com). They took a great idea (The Australian "Dream Job" campaign) and put their unique spin on it. It's the American way and while making my one-minute video application, I tried to do the same.



I've got say, I really like the "skit" applications that have been submitted. I grew up watching SNL back in the day and love a good comedy… Continue

What Women Want



I pulled a Mel Gibson the other night while brainstorming ideas for my application video (for Murphy-Goode Winery's "A Really Goode Job"). I was sitting home alone with my laptop, researching my competition, watching other application videos. I watched several in a row and most of them, during their one-minute, were enjoying a glass of Murphy-Goode wine.





I felt the urge coming on to… Continue

Hi Karyn,

Portugal has many autochthones grape varieties, red and whites.
White varieties are very interesting, with very different characters, but SYRIA also called Códega do Larinho is fantastic, with citrons aromas of tangerine and orange.
Portugal Dão region has the most gastronomic wines: fresh, intense, elegant with very nice acidity, made with autochthonous grapes from very particularly varieties.
Just try.
I am a producer in Portuguese Dão region, and I suggest you to taste an old Dão.

Just see what Paul White Thinks about as:

“So far, Portugal has managed to remain true to its traditions, while at the same time offering up a huge range of distinctive grape varieties and unusual wine styles precisely when many of us are tiring of endless New World makeovers of French varietals.

Dao has a lot going for it in that respect: first rate grape varieties firmly rooted in granite-based ‘terroir’ that sparkles back like diamonds, all this shaped by a growing season that’s relatively gentler and longer than other Portuguese regions. Although relatively unknown and sometimes tricky to pronounce, Dao’s red wines offer consumers genuinely new and exciting tasting experiences.”

Visit please our web-site, for now it’s just in Portuguese, but to see photos you don’t need any translation: www.quintadaboavista.eu

Hope to hear from you soon.
