English Wine Competition

on June 7, 2011

For English Wine Week, we launched our new competition to find the English Wine Drinker of the Year. After some enquiries and interest from other wine sites, we have added some flesh to the bones of this idea.

Please send us pictures of you or your family or friends enjoying a glass or two of English wine. It doesn’t have to be our own brand, but we do need to see what wine it is. A captivating, interesting or funny picture or accompanying story is what we’re after – the prize will go to the most interesting or entertaining picture or story.

You can send in your entries online to or by snail mail to Mark or Jacqie at Carr Taylor Vineyard, Wheel Lane, Westfield, TN35 4SG.

The closing date for entries is 31st August 2011 (emails or post must be date stamped on or before this date). The winner will be announced by the end of September.

As this is the first time we’ve tried anything like this, we are feeling our way a little as to how this will unfold. If we get enough responses, we will publish a selection, perhaps the best three, and get readers of our blog to vote. If we get a modest response, then the office staff will judge. We will keep you posted.

And the prize…? Internet fame, of course. Oh, and a bottle of our Brut.
