South Africa Brand Ambassadors

I’m currently seeking 4 LOST BOY ambassadors in South Africa.

It’s tricky getting the word out about your wines when you never get off the farm. I could use some help – and there’s free wine in it for you 😉

I’m not big on ‘sales’ and you shouldn’t be either. An ambassadors role is to simply share the message and ethos behind the LB brand. I believe that when that is done authentically and paired with a taste of my wines – sales take care of themselves.

The ideal ambassador is someone who:

  • Loves wine, wildlife, and the outdoors
  • Resonates with my story and the brand
  • Enjoy’s storytelling and socializing
  • Is engaged with like-minded communities

As an ambassador, you will receive some branded materials (hat, shirt, etc) and then a few bottles of LOST BOY every month. The only responsibility is to genuinely and authentically share the LB story.

Hosting private tastings, opening the wines with groups of friends, sending me photos of yourself and the wines out doing cool stuff, and of course engaging on social media, etc. are all encouraged. However, each ambassador is different and the key to spreading LB is authenticity.

So has LOST BOY resonated with you? Are you interested in being apart of it? To apply to be an ambassador:

  1. Share the below photo in a story on Instagram or Facebook and tag me (@TrevorDeRuise)
  2. DM me on IG or FB and answer the following:
    1. How has LB resonated with you?
    2. Why do you want to be an ambassador?
    3. What could you uniquely do to help spread the word?

    I actually liked the name Lost Boy from the 1st time I saw it.
    I have been following you for a bit now.
    I like the story behind the wine.

    I would love to be a LB ambassador! I love marketing and advertising. I do photography and videography which would make a great combination in spreading your image and brand. Having a large audience on my Instagram account as well as having many family and friends which love wine would help in spreading the word as we are a very social family and at every social there will always be wine drunk. I would like to come do some promo videos for you and get your brand out there! I look forward to your response!

    Hi, there! I read your story. And as a wine lover, I thought of opening a wineshop, cum place to meet and “kuier” (gather and talk and eat) in Bronkhorstspruit. I initially wanted to have only local wines on the shelfs, but then your story and beautiful label grabbed me and made me say, ha!! Love this guys passion for S.A.!!! I love my country and seeing that people pass 1 another on the street without thought saddens me. I love people and love to interact with them. I worked at a winery in the lowveld, where they make orange wine, and I learned to love the process and the product. There the locals do the “kuier” thing every weekend etc. I thought of bringing it to my town, where I grew up and which I love. In a small farmtown such as ours, people need to be a community and that is what I want to create. Along with my hubby, we want to live our dream of creating a place where people would like to come and have all of the above, and can do what we south Africans do best, eat and drink!!! But it is a slow go, for money is an issue as well as us not having a liqour licence. So we are doing the next best thing, hosting flea markets and maybe get somebody to come on board to host a wine tasting, like they do in the cape. For us, something like being ambassadors to your wine, would open those doors to us. I don’t have an instagram account, and that is why I’m taking this chance and hope you read our story, and come to our aid. We love wine and we would love this opportunity to come our way!!! Please help us make our dream come true!!!!!!????

    Lost boy from Zimbabwe, studied medicine at John Hopkins, lived in Boston before my love for the great outdoors and nature brought me back to Africa.
    I was born in the resort town of Victoria Falls. Currently based in Kwazulu-Natal in the Midlands. I am an outdoors person, love fishing, swimming, surfing, mountain biking off road and yes, I am an avid sommelier.
    I can’t think of a better way than being a lost boy ambassador and free wine.
