Wine label Squealing Pig has launched a new campaign championing LGBTQIA+ communities with the ‘Summer of Love’, created by Treasury Wine Estate’s newly formed in-house agency, Splash.
The campaign, which centers around Pride Day at the Australian Open and will run from January through to March, features presenter and AO Glam Slam host Brihony Dawson along with drag icon and stylist Aysha Buffet (Rian Difuntorum).
Squealing Pig will also be switching out the labels on every bottle of their 750ml Rosé across the country with nine limited-edition Pride Labels.
“Good wine is shared with great friends over interesting conversation. Squealing Pig’s Summer of Love campaign and Pride Labels showcase the beautiful diversity of the queer community in a fun, accessible way,” said Dawson.
“As a proud non-binary person, it’s refreshing to be part of a campaign that embraces love and identity in all its glorious forms.”
Kaushik Lal, senior brand manager aded: “The AO is one of the world’s most accessible and inclusive sports and entertainment events. It’s the perfect platform to get people toasting to ‘love’ both on and off the court in the lead up to AO Pride Day and Sydney WorldPride.”
At Squealing Pig, we’re known for our inclusive and cheeky approach to the complex world of wine, a category that a lot of people find confusing and stuffy. But we are also committed to channelling our playfulness and positivity in support of inclusion and diversity on a much broader level.”
Elsa Beaumont, director of Splash TWE: “We want to shine a spotlight on the rainbow community at its finest; and do so in a meaningful, respectful way that remains true to Squealing Pig.”
Phil van Bruchem, creative director of Splash TWE added: “It was important that we worked closely with a range of representatives of the nine communities – both from the Squealing Pig team and externally, to bring our Summer of Love campaign and Pride Labels to life with real authenticity.”
