The unwritten rules for Hug a Gay Day


My initial post on Hug a Gay Day has created some discussion within the internet-ether.  Well OK, someone commented on someone’s FaceBook about it, and someone else linked to it from a gay forum, but the first description sounded a lot more impressive didn’t it?

Anyway, what’s become clear to me is a couple of things:

  1. Hardly anyone knew about the day.  Let’s call this Lack of Brand Awareness.

A full table listed below.  Click on the wine name for tasting notes etc from the winemaker, or on the wine type to see more about that grape/wine style.
