Only a small percentage of the world’s population has the genetic predisposition to enjoy a hyper-accurate palate memory! The South African Wine Tasting Championships (SAWTC) convened by “The Flying Sommelier” Jean-Vincent Ridon is offering any wine enthusiast, amateur and professional alike, with the opportunity to put your tasting talent to the test at the TOPS at SPAR Wine Show in 2020! Competitors need to register at the SAWTC stand in participating locations before stepping up to taste up to 30 shortlisted wines on show on Thursday, Friday OR Saturday sessions.
SAWTC regional competitions take place on the Saturday evening in the participating location where participants will be required to identify 6 wines “blind” from the shortlisted SAWTC selection. Winners from Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town will be invited to participate in the national SAWTC final to be staged in Cape Town in late July 2020. Finalists will be selected to join “Team South Africa” to travel to France to compete in The World Blind Wine Tasting Championships in October 2020.
