YOUR VOTE WILL DETERMINE THE WINNER!
Check out all the finalists and cast your vote by September 18th!
Will the winner be the debonair Agents of Wine? Perhaps The Gentleman and The Scientist will prevail - or maybe The Talking Grape will take top honors? Will it be the dashing winemaker in How We Make Port or will the heroine in Divorce Honeymoon (shot on an iPhone) get your vote? Or will you applaud Aussie men in the kitchen at the Big Shack Cook-Up? Then there are also the Winemakers-Storytellers who prove that just about anyone can follow their dream. Will it be a Paso team for the third year in a row with Zinfandel-Paso's Wine or will Wine Will Take You Anywhere put five-time finalist Troy in the top spot?
Kudos to all the entrants!Each entrant will receive a 1-year membership to WineSpectator.com, which includes enrollment in all ten online wine courses at WineSpectatorSchool.com. Each finalist has also earned a pair of tickets to a Wine Spectator Grand Tasting or Tour event. The winner will receive a pair of tickets to the weekend-long Wine Spectator Wine Experience.
PLAN YOUR ENTRY FOR 2012!!
Below is the call for entries for 2011.
Submit your video to Wine Spectator's Fifth Annual Video Contest. Just make it short, educational and entertaining. Storytelling is in; straight-on commercials are out.
Everyone can enter—whether you're a wine lover, wine region rep or a winery, retailer or sommelier, rapper, lawyer, chef or videographer—as long as you are at least 21 years old.
Become a star! Your video will have a big, big audience on WineSpectator.com if it is selected as a finalist by our editors. The public picks the winner.
Great prizes for all qualified entrants and finalists. The winner receives two full passes to the 2011 Wine Experience in New York City where their video will be shown.
For examples and inspiration, check out last year's finalists. The winning video, "Wine Is...," featured winemakers, sommeliers and retailers reflecting on the deeper meaning of wine in their lives. Read the story behind Joel Peterson's video.
