In 2008 I created a video contest entry to win a prize from Little Penguin wines. It was the first (and only) contest I won for an all-expense paid trip to Australia, and it holds a super special place in my heart. Part of that prize was a winery tour, so I’m also pretty well-equipped to tell you if you should try Little Penguin wines – spoiler alert, they gave me a trip to Australia so you’d better BELIEVE I’m gonna tell you yes! Also, it’s really, really cheap wine so you can drink a lot of it! And it has a picture of a penguin, so even though it doesn’t do anything for the ACTUAL Little Penguins, like conservation or anything, it still makes you feel good!

What are Australia’s Little Penguins?
(Factual answer alert) Australia’s little penguins (Eudyptula minor) are the smallest species of penguin in the world, measuring only about 33 cm in height and weighing around 1 kg. They have slate-blue plumage on their backs and white bellies, and they live in colonies along the southern coastlines of Australia and New Zealand. They are also known as faerie penguins or blue penguins because of their size and color. They feed on small fish, squid and krill, and they nest in burrows or under rocks. They are nocturnal and return to their colonies at dusk after a day of fishing.

The judges loved it, and the voters loved it, allowing me to win the contest.
