Finally… A WHITE Wine Emoji? 🍷

News 🕔July 30, 2018 0 comments

If you don’t know what emojis are, you’ve been living under a rock you’re in for a treat! Emojis are little images in place of text that let us communicate without saying (or typing) a word! 😀👍🍷

According to emojipedia, there are 2,823 emojis in the Unicode Standard as of June 2018.

Among the beverage emojis you’ll find a cocktail, beer, a tropical drink, even sake… and a glass of red wine. It’s been that way despite the #WhiteWineEmoji campaign first posted in 2014. But according to Forbes, that might be changing!

After years of online petitions and social media posts lamenting the lack of a white wine emoji, one of California’s white wine producing giants has actually moved the white wine glass one step closer to keyboards.

Getting a new emoji isn’t as simple as it seems. The Unicode Consortium must add an emoji to the Unicode Standard in order to make it available across all platforms.

Unfortunately, oenophiles will have to wait a while longer for the white wine emoji to come to fruition. Even if Kendall-Jackson’s presentation is successful, the new emoji likely will not roll out until late 2019 or 2020.

Oh.

Well, that’s all right. We can wait. At least there is a wine emoji! 😀👍🍷

And while we wait, we can look forward to the whopping pile of new emojis already scheduled for release for the rest of 2018!
