A helping hand with wine allergies

Did you know that a growing number of people are becoming allergic to the added preservatives in food?

I am lucky not to suffer from any allergies (that I know of), but friends of mine are not so fortunate. One lady in particular has started suffering an itchy nose and skin rashes when drinking white or red wine. She loves a wee tipple so was most upset to find out that she had a sulphite intolerance.

Luckily her husband is a resourceful sort of fellow and began researching ways to alleviate  her symptoms. This is where UBfree comes to play. Together we formed a New Zealand research and development company and began looking into ways of removing the nasty added sulphites in wine.

ubfreeUBfree have employed some of the most experienced minds in food technology science to develop a patented (pending) natural and totally organic formula that effectively neutralises 100% of the free sulphites in all wines.

Nelson-based graphic design studio Envisage Design have branded the UBfree product range with a trademarked logo, global eCommerce website and attractive retail packaging. The finished result is timeless and robust with a seriously modern twist.

Check out www.UBfreeWine.com and spread the word about this innovative new solution to help wine drinkers who are sulphite intolerant.

Cheers!

iPad2 as a comic reader

I’ve been putting off the puchase of an iPad due to the simple fact that I thought it lacked a killer app. That’s is to say, there was no real reason for me to have another (oversized) iPhone. I say ‘was’, because a brand new iPad2 has recently been added to my stable of Apple…

Thoughts on 2011

Oh boy, what a year 2010 was. Self-initiated realignments were put into play at the very start of the year, and I’m very pleased to say they’ve all paid off. The NZ economy has been in limbo, to say the very least, for the past 18 months. As such, it’s easy to make big-picture decisions.…
