Going for Gold

February 8, 2010

BruceDo you think you’re an award winning winemaker? The Winemaker Magazine International Amateur Wine Competition is just around the corner.

Not sure if you’re ready for competition? There’s only one way to find out. Wine Sense staff have won over 80 medals and our customers have won 20 medals. Not only do you have a chance to win fame and glory but Winexpert will reward you with a free wine kit if you win with one of their wines! Each wine is scored by 3 judges and you’ll receive the judging sheets for each wine you enter.

Graphic1I’m once again in charge of organizing all of the wines that Wine Sense staff and customers enter. It’s a big job but I enjoy it. Here’s a reminder of what you’ll need to do in order to make sure I can get your entries properly shipped for the competition.

-Bottles must be at your favourite Wine Sense location by Saturday Feb 13th.

-One bottle per entry is required. 

-Bottles must not have decorative labels or shrink tops.

-Make sure that each bottle of wine that you would like to enter is identified so we can put proper contest labels on them.

-The official Entry Form must accompany your entry and each wine entered requires a $25 entry fee. Include a cheque for $25 for each wine made out to Winemaker. (1 entry = $25, 2 entries = $50  etc.)

-Wine Sense will look after all shipping costs.

Complete rules and regulations and Entry Forms can be downloaded at www.winemakermag.com.

Here’s a couple of hints to competition success-

– The older the wine the better.
– If you really like the wine, enter it.

Good Luck!
