Naked wines and Wines of Argentina are partnering on a new competition aimed at finding the next superstar Argentine winemaker. Find out how!

Naked wines and Wines of Argentina are partnering on a new competition aimed at finding the next superstar Argentine winemaker.

The idea behind the initiative is simple - we are looking to discover the most talented, independent winemakers making great value wines who have yet to begin exporting to the UK.

Their prize, a guaranteed order of £50,000 GBP and direct access to Naked Wines 175,000 strong customer base.     

How the judging will be done

Wineries are already signing up for the competition, which will see samples of their wines sent over to the UK for the up-coming Wines of Argentina Annual Tasting, held on September 14th at Lords Cricket Ground.

At the event, 50 of Naked Wines top customers - known as ‘Archangels’ - will be on hand to rigorously taste the wines and rate them based on quality. Following this, winemakers will be on live video conference from Argentina ready to discuss their projects and conduct a live negotiation.

The winning winery will be announced in real time at the event, with their £50,000 order being signed and wines up for sale on the Naked Wines website before the end of the day.
