WTF is up with the Top 100 SA Wines competition

So yes, another wine competition to confuse us all. I already grinch at the current compliment of stickers on wine bottles. It is like the fake Viagra emails in my inbox, distracting me from the real Pfizer. I guess only time will tell if the “Top 100 SA Wines” competition will succeed and make my upper lip stiff. I doubt it.

Anyhow, the real floppy for this competition seems to be their T&C, not to be confuse with G&T’s. Last week a producer made me aware of this, and I thought I’ll share some of the more interesting terms & conditions.

How much will it cost to enter your wine:

  • R1083 / wine entered and
    R2793 / winning wine
  • Six bottles must be submitted with each entry.

  • The entry fee is non-refundable
