I was invited to the media launch of 100 Women 100 Wines yesterday. The media launch was a food and wine pairing event held at The Maslow Hotel in Sandton in a private dining room.
The 100 Women 100 Wines event, sponsored by Ultra Liquors, is going to be held in Johannesburg for the first time this year (it’s been held in Cape Town until now). The idea behind the event is to get 100 women to judge wines! How cool! They’re not looking for wine connoisseurs to be judges in this event, they’re looking for women who love drinking wine! That’s me right
The 100 Women 100 Wines event will be held on 1 November 2013 at the Maslow Hotel in Sandton, and they’re currently looking for the 100 women who will be the judges, that’s where you come in.
All prospective judges have to do is to motivate their reason as to why they should become a judge via an email to Clare@spill.co.za by 16 October 2013, and the lucky winners will be invited to come to the event at The Maslow Hotel, on Friday November 1st.
They will then sip and swirl their way through 300 of South Africa’s top selling wines categorised by drinking occasion, instead of the usual method… which I’m actually not sure about because I’ve never judged wine before. You’ll get to judge wines according to whether they’d be suitable for a wedding or a night out with the girls or just having a braai with friends… I like that idea because that’s generally how wine is enjoyed.
More importantly enter to see if you can crack an invitation – get hold of Clare@spill.co.za!!
