A Wine Tasting Counts as Work, Right?

The other day, we got a delivery straight from Sonoma Valley, California to The Sampson House. You guessed it…a big crate of wine! Not just any wine; but the best bottles from our client Ammunition Wine. Naturally, this called for a wine tasting in the office (wink wink). It counts as conducting research for work, right?

In order to make the occasion official, we needed a charcuterie board. Our array of cheeses (surprisingly enough, blueberry goat cheese was delish), baguettes, crackers, sausage, prosciutto, and fruit jam was the perfect addition to the 10 bottles of wine to taste.

From Pinot Noir to Sauvignon Blanc, we made our way through the smokiness and fruitiness of each wine with the sunny Sonoma Valley weather in mind. It was almost as if we were in the California vineyards (soon enough, hint hint).

Val: "What a fun day. We should this monthly! ;) Makes me excited for patio weather and wine with friends."

Jeff: “I liked the Equalizer wine the best. It was the smoothest wine out of all of them.”

Angela: "I don't usually drink red wine but I was surprised how much I loved the Zinfandel. We'll definitely be having more wine & charcuterie days. :) "

Kerry: “I usually don’t gravitate towards red wine so the Pinot Noir was a real surprise. It was so good! I may have just become a red wine drinker”

Gabrielle: "It was definitely a great way to relax and take a break in the office! I personally had never done any kind of charcuterie with wine before, so it was really cool to see how the flavors changed with the food we ate."

Liesel: “My personal favorite was the Pinot Noir, which is actually pretty surprising! I’m very picky about reds but this wine hit the right note. Its light and fruity body helped the berry notes come through. I think I found the new perfect go-to wine!”

This was such a fun way to get away from the desk on a Friday afternoon. Stay tuned for all of the exciting content that is to come for Ammunition Wine. Until then, cheers!

And the Award Goes to...

No, we aren’t talking about the Oscars. But none other than the Addy Awards— the most important awards season here at The Sampson House! The Addy Awards are industry awards for exemplary work in the digital media marketing field hosted by the South Dakota American Advertising Federation.

This awards show is always a good excuse to get dressed up as an office and head out for a great evening spent with like-minded creatives. But more importantly, we were grateful to be spending the night representing both The Sampson House and all of our clients that we love creating content for.

This year, we had the honor of receiving two awards— a gold and a silver Addy.

GOLD ADDY: Jane Rae Events Lookbook

Online/Interactive- Digital Publications

This year’s gold Addy in Online & Interactive Digital Publications went to the Jane Rae Events Lookbook, a project that we take a lot of pride in. For this lookbook, we wanted to emulate Jane Rae’s beautiful aesthetic and add a touch of whimsical. We were over the moon with how this turned out— and the judges did too!

SILVER ADDY: Hungry for Truth SD Foodie Film

Film, Video, & Sound- Branded Content & Entertainment

Hungry for Truth’s fan-favorite foodie films took home a silver Addy. The one that caught the judges’ eyes was the yummy turkey bites from the Thanksgiving season. These are some of our favorite videos to film (because who doesn’t love food, right?). Through a combination of still shots and stop motion, a lot goes into both these videos. The set-up, creation, and editing of these videos is a long process, so it’s easy to say that hard work really pays off.

Cheers to a great year for The Sampson House and our clients! We can’t wait to see what the next year will bring us.
