White Wine Emoji Message Board

In 2022, the New Zealand wine industry embarked on a quest to capture the WHITE WINE EMOJI which has been missing from digital keyboards since the late 1990’s. Unfortunately, our submission to the Unicode Consortium was declined, so the emoji still remains at large today.
White wine is one of the most widely consumed alcoholic beverages across the world, and yet there is no emoji to convey the popular beverage. During May, while celebrating International Sauvignon Blanc Day, International Pinot Gris Day, or International Chardonnay Day, express how you feel about the missing WHITE WINE EMOJI here.
When we’re able to apply for the WHITE WINE EMOJI in 2024, we will use your voice to help the campaign once again!
Let your voice be heard!

"Eight kinds of footwear, five monkeys, three dogs, three roses, thirteen moons, three clouds with sun, seven boats, four books where the difference is color and volume number, two fountain pens -- and they are having a hard time approving a glass of white wine?.
