Where in the World Has Wine Taken You?

Tell us your wine wanderlust story and submit your video to Wine Spectator’s 13th Annual Video Contest. Anyone can enter—whether you’re a wine lover, work in the wine or restaurant industry, or are a student of film, culinary arts or viticulture and enology. (You just need to be age 21 or older.) Over the past decade, we’ve seen top videos submitted by wine drinkers, wineries, wine reps, sommeliers, rappers, lawyers, chefs and videographers.

How to Enter

1. Develop Your Own Take on this Year’s Topic
Our theme for 2019 is “Wine Wanderlust.”

2. Shoot
Feel free to use your iPhone, Android, GoPro, DSLR or video camera. You don’t need professional video equipment to win.

3. Have Fun!
Don’t be afraid to get creative and enjoy the process—it’ll show in your video! We’re looking for passion and great storytelling as much as production value.

4. Watch the Time and Dates
Submissions cannot exceed 2 minutes in length. Get all the rules and submit your video to us online by Monday, Aug. 19.
