The name Oscar Quevedo may seem familiar from the Quevedo Port page- don’t be confused, it’s the same person! Oscar is an addicted blogger/Social (media) butterfly and came up with a unique way to market wine through social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter. What’s the difference between Quevedo Port Wines and Oscar’s Wine you may ask?
“When we first decided to create a new brand of still wine, we were thinking of a young wine, with funky packaging, marketed solely using Social Media, which is how we came up with Oscar’s. But, traditionally, Quevedo is a Port House that just happens to make some very special still wines, under the same label. Today, however, we have Quevedo, which is more traditional and classic, and Oscar’s, which is young, dynamic and fun.” – Oscar Quevedo
The wine itself is a fantastic red Douro wine and was created to be enjoyed with friends, good food, and some well humored conversation. Please visit Oscar’s blog to learn more about the project, and how you can interact with Oscar personally through his blog, as well as on the social wine discover site www.adegga.com through the use of the QR Code on the back of every Oscar’s bottle.
