Countdown to the 2009 Value Awards
Once again, WINE magazine is on the hunt for South Africa’s “best value” wines – wines that offer the best quality at UNDER R60 per 750ml (bottle, box or jug).
Have you got what it takes?
With the competition now into its eighth year, the challenge is to enter your best-value wines for assessment by the WINE magazine tasting panel.
The incentive? Great exposure for the top rated wines and Value Award winners; free marketing of those wines offering the most enjoyment at less than R60 per 750ml, regardless of the type of packaging.
Full results of the 2009 Value Awards will be published in WINE magazine’s 2010 Best Value Wine Guide (on sale from end-October 2009), with highlights carried in various other publications, on the airwaves and over the Internet – for months on end.
There’s no downside: the identity of those wines not selected as the best of the bunch won’t be disclosed in the tasting report. The objective of the competition is to showcase the pick of the crop when it comes to value for money at under R60 a bottle.
Closing date for entry forms: Friday 5 June 2009
There’s no restriction as to the type or style of wines entered, no limit to the number of entries per producer, and a relatively small price to pay: a few bottles (alternatively boxes or jugs) of wine for judging purposes, and an entry fee of R200 per wine (incl VAT). You’ve got nothing to lose – except the opportunity to be ranked among the country’s best value-for-money wines selling ex-cellar or in liquor stores at under R60 a bottle (750ml).
Judging will take place in July, with the award winners to be announced end-October 2009.
