FindWine announces consumer wine critic competition

Published:  17 January, 2011

Online wine retailer FindWine has announced a consumer competition search for a wine reviewer and critic.

Consumers will have the opportunity to submit tasting notes and reviews of one of FindWine's wines, with the winning tasting note writer being appointed as the FindWine wine critic for a three month period.

The winning consumer will receive samples of every new wine added to the FindWine range over that period and be responsible for crafting a fun, informative amusing tasting notes to be published on the site.

In addition, the writer will also have their own regular blog on the site and further web presence.

A new writer will be appointed every three months to keep the format fresh and allow greater consumer interaction over the course of the year.

FindWine founder Mike Howes said: "The focus is on fun, creating reviews that are engaging, original and atypical in comparison to 'regular' wine reviews. We feel this approach is in keeping with the ethos behind FindWine - making wine fun, enjoyable and easy, and will provide our loyal consumers with a platform to be creative, think outside the box and of course taste some damn fine wine!"
