Ugh. It's that time again: time to order work drinks. How to please everyone... with an activity that should actually be fun! That's where Olivia – Vinomofo's specialised business wine liaison – comes in. Want to save time, money and treat your taste buds to wine that blows away the competition, whatever your budget? Meet Liv. You're gonna get along just fine.

Want to know more? Thought so. So we caught up with Liv for you and fired off a few questions.

Hey Olivia, what do you do?

Oh, hi Chris. I'm Vinomofo's business account manager, and I'm here to make lives easier. My job is to get to know your office and how, when and what your team love to drink. I make sure every work event ends with everyone in the office loving you for your wine choices. My job is to make you – the person ordering the drinks – look good.

This is Olivia. She's a good egg.

What do you specifically do for businesses?

As your company's wine supplier, I'll help you with everything from office drinks to gifts and work events. 

General office drinks

I get to know what everyone loves, provide the staples and get some fun and exciting wines to keep things interesting. Your staff will LOVE you for it!

Larger work events

Spend less and have better event wine. There are so many BYO venues around, so name your budget and I'll organise an incredible wine package that will impress you and your guests.

Client gifts and staff incentives

Whether you need to say 'thanks', 'well done' or something else, you don’t need a big budget to show appreciation. We work with some incredible wineries that people will know. 

Impress top clients with some of the best super premium shiraz around. Incentivise staff or say thanks to someone who's gone above and beyond, with something new and exciting. 

Why contact Liv?

I understand you'll probably need the approval of a number of people in the office, so I can lay out the benefits in plain terms for you. I also get to know you on a personal level, and can recommend things you'll like as our list of wines changes.

Basically, I’m here to make your life easier, tastier and more fun! Wine isn't supposed to be just another thing on your to-do list. Delegate it to me and I'll make you the new favourite person in the office.

Let's upgrade your next work drinks. Cheers!

– Olivia, Business Wine Liaison

Olivia's go-to wines for Friday night drinks 

Parties should be fun, not stressful. These are my time-tested, go-to wine styles, to ensure there's something delicious for everyone.  

Pinot grigio

Whites are the hardest wine to please people with. Although so many people LOVE sauvignon blanc, there are also lots who don’t. Pinot grigio is a great alternative – because it's so delicate and delicious, it's one white option that never fails.

Ludic Pinot Grigio 2017 is crisp, playful and pretty, and fits the brief like a glove.


Bubbles will be the most consumed wine at your event. For an all-time favourite crowd pleaser, you'll want a sparkling wine that's light yet textured, fruity yet dry, and complex yet readily accessible.

My go-to: Bisou Bisou Blanc de Blancs ticks all the boxes, and then some.

Juicy reds

It's important to include a lighter-bodied, juicy red like pinot noir, but don’t stop there, experiment – your crew will love you for it! I like throwing a gamay, sangiovese or a cheeky grenache blend in the mix.

I'm very excited about the Ennak Grenache Blend at the moment, which is just as quirky as it is friendly and charming.


With the weather cooling down, there's nothing more delicious than a cockle-warming shiraz. I'm personally loving Heathcote shiraz at the moment, with all their have beautiful, big bold fruits, matched to a certain suave smoothness and underlying spice.

I can't go past the latest shiraz from D'Sas. When we first met the maker, Matthew Di Sciascio, and his family, we knew we'd found something special. And their wines deliver time and again, belittling the big boys' toys in quality and value.
