Invivo: An invigorating wine brand with a growing following

Last Wednesday, Invivo, a New Zeland wine brand, invited me to its US debut celebration at SPiN New York. The brand’s co-founders and childhood friends Tim Lightbourne and Rob Cameron welcomed guests and toasted to this momentous occasion. They also celebrated with their US “glambassador,” fashion photographer Nigel Barker. Interestingly enough, Nigel was the first person in the US to try Invivo.  I love his fascinating story! (Check my Instagram @Citychickstyle for the video clip). Other guests included Jay Manuel, Hugh Jackman’s wife Deborra Lee-Furness, Olympic swimmer Matt Targett, US Olympic fencer Miles Chamley-Watson, President of the NY Stock Exchange Tom Farley, Nole Marin (judge on ANTM), Sasha Aaron (country singer), fashion designer Alice Roi, and many more.

We all had a great time at the celebration drinking the brand’s Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, and having small bites. Nigel and other guests played ping pong and a little “wine pong” too. At the end of the evening, Nigel played a game of ping pong against producer Eric Phillips and the Invivo glambassador won!

I learned some other interesting facts about Invivo at the event.  Graham Norton, a UK talk show host, is a shareholder and partnered with Invivo to create his own wine. This blend is also now available in the US. Graham Norton’s OWN is one of the world’s fastest growing bottles of wine going from selling just 12,000 bottles in 2014 to 2 million bottles in 2017; Invivo has become New Zealand’s fastest-growing winery, with 850% sales growth since 2011; Invivo is listed in Deloitte’s fast 50 growing companies and is currently sold in 17 countries around the globe. Additionally, Invivo received the “World’s Best Sauvignon Blanc” award! It’s the truth- we all couldn’t get over how delicious this blend is. Cheers to Invivo and to many more milestones for the brand!

    Thanks for helping me to gain new ideas about computers. I also have the belief that certain of the best ways to keep your laptop in best condition is a hard plastic material case, as well as shell, which fits over the top of one’s computer. Most of these protective gear tend to be model targeted since they are manufactured to fit perfectly in the natural outer shell. You can buy these directly from the owner, or through third party places if they are readily available for your laptop computer, however only a few laptop could have a spend on the market. Once more, thanks for your ideas.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets
    I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my
    newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I
    look forward to your new updates.

    I took my own initiative of replacing the screen myself, as all I needed was to replace the display screen. If this is a business laptop for working on documents then it may make more sense to stick with LCD. You can find a variety of HP laptop computers with cutting edge technology.

    I do trust all of the ideas you’ve presented in your post. They are very convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are very brief for beginners. May just you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
