Hardy Wallace aka Dirty South Gets A Really Goode Job

July 21, 2009

So his wasn’t the prettiest face on the page, I am sure he’d be the first to admit.

But anybody who knows Hardy, or gets to know Hardy, knows he’s a really Goode guy.

No surprise that Murphy-Goode snapped up the guy who flew across the country to be first in line in San Francisco to sign up to compete for a really goode job as Murphy-Goode Wine Country Lifestyle Correspondent–someone who’s seriously been big into wine for awhile–when we met at the Wine Blogger’s Conference, it seemed everybody already knew him!–and someone who certainly doesn’t take himself too seriously.

According to the winery’s press release,

“This is Murphy good!” Wallace said after he was named the winner at a ceremony on the Healdsburg Town Square. “Seriously, this was my dream job before the job ever came along. My dream has come true!”

The good-humored Wallace is founder of the popular “Dirty South Wine” blog, is a musician, and a Sommelier Guild level I and II.

“This was an extremely difficult decision given the talent of all the candidates, but Hardy really knocked us over in the interviews with his passion and enthusiasm,” said Murphy-Goode winemaker, David Ready, Jr. “He’s like us: he’s a people-person who loves wine.”

Wallace will live for free in a charming, two-bedroom home near downtown
Healdsburg.  He starts “work” on August 15, 2009.

Congrats, Hardy! You ran a great campaign for the job and you deserve the $10,000 a month for the next six months, the accolades, and all the Liar’s Dice you can stand.

But the real congratulations goes out to all the people (myself included!) who went for it, who said, “hey, I’m in!” People who took a risk, made a video, submitted it, promoted it. People who gave it a go.

Because you never know where something might take you!

(Hey something? I’m ready when you are!)

One more time, because I know you want to see it again, here’s my video:

Let me know if you’ve got a social media job for me! My adventurous soul is up for just about anything–especially in the area of wine, and particularly, wines along the biodynamic/sustainable spectrum  which would capitalize on my background in environmental studies!
