Virtual Wine Circle
Apr 4th, 2010 at 6:57pm
 
For those of you who cannot find a wine circle near you that you would like to participate in, I would kindly ask you to consider the Virtual Wine Circle.  To find more information about it, you can become a fan on facebook:

Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register

This does not replace the helpful information on this forum, but if you're looking for feedback on your wines, it's something worth considering.  We offer winemaking videos and a discussion afterwards.

As posted in another area of this forum, Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register you can also enter your wines into a competition for a wine judge to assess.

Very handy if you cannot find a group in your area.

Thanks,

M.

Again, I would like to extend a warm welcome to get your entries in for the Virtual Wine Circle Competition on June 11-13th!

Contact Bob at:   bob@winesathome.co.uk

Entries to be bottled in 250 ml PET bottles with purple tops, and labels will be provided when the bottles are sent.  They are available at 30p each (+ P&P) from:

Bob Morton
LDC House
Stuart Road
Pontefract WF8 4PQ

Labels are to be applied centrally and competitor’s name is to be written below the cover up line.

Open class wines to have written above the cover line:
Major Flavour Ingredient[s]
Style and the Sweetness Level [Sweet, Medium or Dry]

UCDavis marking system employed using a 20 point system so the wine is judged against itself and not against other wines as per standard Show Class rules.  This means your wine will not be compared to others in the class but rather judged based on it’s own merits!

•      18 to 20 awarded Gold
•      16-17.5 awarded Silver
•      14-15.5 awarded Bronze
•      12-13.5 awarded Honourable Mention

Bottles should either be mailed to Bob Morton (see address above) by June 6th or brought to the show and entered on June 11th.
