Autumn is a great time of year to be a liquor store owner.
For one thing: you gear up to actually make money! No more crying into your coffee because you can’t feed the kids wine for dinner– the HOLIDAYS are coming! (I’m mostly kidding about this. Mostly.)
Reason Two: Seasonal releases. The fall sees a dramatic increase in limited release items that are usually very good and highly sought after. Interesting flavors abound, and you get a surge of wine blends aged in different kinds of casks.
There are other reasons, but for now let’s focus on reason number two, because it is the entire point my post. One of my all-time favorite seasonal release wines, Bogle Phantom Red, is in stock!! It’s deep, dark, and rich, with loads of spice and fruit flavors. A PERFECT wine to sip on those chilly fall evenings we’re finally getting.
And this year, they’ve jumped on the bandwagon with an “augmented reality” label. If you’re thinking to yourself, what in the Fred Flintstone is THAT? well, you’re probably not alone.
Augmented reality, commonly referred to as “AR”, uses the existing environment to overlay digital information on an image of something being viewed through a device, such as a smartphone or an iPad.
So, Bogle has an app that you can download which will overlay movement and images over an existing item viewed through your phone’s camera, like so:
Sorry I am evidently terrible at converting videos. And does anyone else get a “Stranger Things” vibe from that vine?? Half spooky, half silly, completely entertaining and mildly creepy, this app is sure to be a crowd-pleaser at your Halloween shindig. And hey, so’s the wine!
Wanna try before you buy?
That’s why I post! Because we love you, we will have Bogle Phantom open this Friday, October 19th from 4PM- 7PM. After 7 I cannot promise that I won’t finish the rest. We’ll also be offering 10% off this product during our tasting event. Hope to see you there. Cheers, friends!
