Hola! I’m Amanda Barnes, a British wine journalist and I’m off on a global wine adventure. In 2009, I moved from England to South America to learn more about wine and I have stayed ever since! My longing to travel and discover the entire world of wine inspired this journey, Around the World in 80 Harvests.

80 Harvests is a modern-day wine and travel documentary visiting 80 wine regions of the world in 42 countries, and we’re sharing the journey with our online community. We are visiting the most renowned wineries from each region, interviewing top wine producers and chefs, and sharing stories from the road through videos, articles and photos.

We love hearing from our readers and fellow wine lovers about your favorite wine experiences, where we should visit, and what inspires you. If our journey inspires you to travel, taste new and exciting wines, learn the stories and innovations from these regions, and share your love of wine with others… we’ll feel like we’ve achieved our mission.

As you can imagine, we need your support to make this journey possible and keep us moving around the globe. It takes a lot of resources to travel to each of these regions and produce the stories we’re sharing with you. We’ll use the support from our Patreons to help fund our travels, content production and distribution (videos, articles, website, printing, social media), and operating expenses to keep the lights on.

We would also happily welcome your constructive feedback, mentorship or ideas for the project. Our aim is to build a community to connect wine lovers and professionals with wine regions across the world, and to do that, we want you to be a part of this!

What your contribution means to us:

  • If you can donate just $5 per month (think of it as buying me a glass of wine), we can spend more time exploring and writing about these amazing wine regions.
  • $10 per month: we can write travel guides with photo galleries to inspire you as you plan your own wine adventures.
  • $20 per month: we’ll be able to move forward in exciting ways and be able to pay our team to help us design beautiful content, improve our web design, plan and build partnerships for our journey.
  • $50 per month: we will be able to bring our content to the next level and add a video producer to our team to better showcase the highlights of these wine regions.
  • $100 per month: we will be eternally grateful and send you an enormous virtual hug! With this support, you’ll fund much more of our travels and special projects to help our journey grow.

Patrons are charged automatically at the start of each month, and you can cancel or increase your contribution at any time. Rewards will begin to be provided once your first payment is made.

We hope you are able to support us on this journey. And even if all you can do is continue reading, commenting and engaging with us on social media, we are very grateful! Thank you in advance for your support.
