Volta Wine Review Contest

We are celebrating harvest this year with what we hope will become an annual event. As of October 31st, friends, fans, followers and aficionados who love a great cabernet sauvignon are encouraged to film and submit their very own reviews of our Volta 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon. This prize is valued at over 800$!!! Details inside..



While the contest is open to wine critics, connoisseurs and novices alike, we are not necessarily looking for the conventional wine review. We are looking for something exciting, creative, unique and perhaps even funny – something that captures the spirit of our wine – something unrehearsed and natural.

Need some inspiration? Check out Gary V’s review of our 2005 Cabernet here: http://voltawine.com/740/voltas-2005-cabernet-sauvignon-featured-on-wine-library-tv/. He’s a seasoned pro, but we’re confident you too can bring the thunder! Just make it your own!

The best part?

Well, there are two…

1. YOU will be choosing the winner. Our founders will narrow down the submitted videos to a Top 3, upon which these Top 3 reviews will be shared across our social channels and our mailing list and then voted on.

2. The WINNING APPLICANT (one) will receive a FREE case of 2010 Volta Cabernet Sauvignon (shipping costs included).
