WINE WARS is a competitive wine tasting event where even the loser gets to take something home.
STEP 1: FORM A TEAM
Your team may be 1, 2, or 3 persons (but never more than 3!)
Each member of your team must be at least 21 years of age on the day of the event.
All teams must bring 3 bottles no matter how many people are on your team.
STEP 2: CREATE A FUN TEAM NAME (This is a contest!)
Come up with a creative team name. For example: Victorious Vino, Sip Happens, Wine Warriors, The Winos, etc. The more creative, the better!
When purchasing your ticket, you will be asked to enter a team name. Share your team name ONLY with those you invite to join your team. Teams consist of 3 people max.
Team names must be unique. If your team name has already been selected, we will contact you and ask you to choose another team name.
STEP 3: BUY 3 BOTTLES OF WINE AND BRING THEM TO THE EVENT
The wine for the evening is: CABERNET
EACH TEAM MUST BRING 3 BOTTLES OF THE SAME WINE NO MATTER IF YOUR TEAM IS 1, 2, OR 3 PEOPLE!
When we say BOTTLE, we mean BOTTLE! No boxes, cans, wineskins, etc.!
Your bottles of wine should NOT be odd in shape or size. This will preserve the anonymity of the bottles during the tasting. We retain the right to disallow an entry if it is too easy to identify based on its shape/size.
***Thanks to our Sponsor, TOTAL WINE, when you purchase your ticket for Wine Wars, you will receive a special code that gives you 15% OFF the purchase of Winery Direct Cabernet Wine that can be used at any Total Wine Central Florida location. Must present valid code in store at register to receive discount.***
STEP 4: DROP YOUR WINE BOTTLES OFF AT THE REGISTRATION DESK
At the registration desk you will check in your team and turn in your bottles of wine. At that time you will be given a voting sheet and keepsake wine glasses for your team. See Step 6 on how to cast your vote.
As the event gets started, we will place wrapped bottles out in the main area for tasting.
STEP 5: LET THE PARTY BEGIN!
We begin the event with a few words from our sponsors, and from our hostess with the mostess, who is in charge of organizing the event.
Then it’s ‘Game On’ and you are free to move about and taste wines, check out our incredible food vendors, network, meet and greet.
STEP 6: CAST YOUR VOTES FOR FAVORITE WINE & LEAST FAVORITE WINE
Towards the end of the night, we will call for votes.
Each person is allowed to vote once for their Favorite Wine and Least Favorite Wine.
Each person will cast their votes on the WineWarsUSA.com voting page made available the day of the event. You will need your cell phone to access the webpage to vote. You will record the number of the bottle of wine that you liked the MOST and the number of the bottle of wine you liked the LEAST.
If 2 or more teams bring the same wine, votes can still differ depending upon the temperature of the wine, how long it has been open, etc.
STEP 7: AND THE WINNER IS…
Once the votes are cast and counted, we will award all of the third unopened bottles of wine to the top team, except for one bottle.
The team that brought the Least Favorite wine of the evening gets the privilege of taking their bottle back home.
Your team has the chance to win and take home up to 150 bottles of wine at the end of the night! WINNING!!!WHAT IF I DON’T DRINK WINE, BUT I STILL WANT TO COME?For those that do not wish to participate in the wine competition, but still want to come and enjoying incredible food, an amazing atmosphere with great music and fun people there are now tickets for individual non-wine drinkers. We don’t want anyone to feel excluded. This is a fun event for all!
