About The Wine Wankers
G’day – You’ve tripped through the vines of The Wine Wankers. We’re two major wine lovers who love talking about wine through social media. Humour is a central theme of our writing style, attempting to put the wine in context rather than churning out mind numbing descriptions of wine.
Conrad is Sydney, Australia based and Drew, although originally from Sydney, is now living in Stockholm, Sweden. Both of us spend a lot of time traveling the wine world so this means our blog and social media has a global focus.
If you haven’t guessed already, our name is lashed in irony. To quote Urban Dictionary, a wine wanker is, “somebody who drinks wine pretentiously in the company of others to show off their knowledge and try to make other people feel inferior.”
We like to think of ourselves as the ‘anti wine wanker brigade’, aiming to make wine more accessible by taking the pretentiousness (real or perceived) out of the wine fraternity – ie, wine without the wankery.
