Become one of 100 women wine judges

The ladies thoroughly enjoyed 100 Women 100 Wines 2011

Fancy yourself as a wine connoisseur? Cape Town Tourism is looking for ladies who would like to sip, swirl, taste and judge South Africa’s top wines at the Ultra Liquors 100 Women 100 Wines competition.

Become a judge on a wine adventure like no other, where you’ll get to vote for your Top 100 favourite South African wines. This glamorous event is taking place on Saturday, November 10 at the five-star Table Bay Hotel on Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront.

To enter, simply go to the website and tell us why you should be on the judging panel.

The serious business of sniffing and sipping South African wines

The Ultra Liquors 100 Women 100 Wines competition is South Africa’s only female wine-judging competition.

“This is a totally unique approach,” says Mark Norrish, General Manager of sponsors Ultra Liquors. “Our research tells us that women choose their wines by the occasion. Wine drinkers look for something that complements the moment and suits the mood. For example, two of the categories we are tasting wines in are Girls' Night Out and Celebration”. 

“The response to last year’s event was fantastic,” says organiser, Clare Mack of Spill. “Women judging wines in this casual, relaxed way has proven to be a huge success”.

As sponsors for the second year in a row Cape Town Tourism welcomes the event.

“100 Women 100 Wines is a welcome addition to Cape Town’s event landscape. It’s becoming a regular on the Cape Town calendar and is now an annual event that brings together women from different cultural backgrounds and demographic groups in order to celebrate the Cape’s great vine offerings at an unusual, fun-filled affair," says Mariëtte du Toit-Helmbold, CEO of Cape Town Tourism.

Entries close on Friday, 19 October 2012.
