THE GREAT SPECTATOR £1,000 WINE COMPETITION
Here is an entertaining competition with a prize of fine wine worth £1,000. The competition is open to all readers of The Spectator, aged 18 and over, subject to the rules below.
The first prize is a well balanced mix of red and white wine, sherry and champagne from all over the world, especially selected for the The Spectator by our resident wine expert, Auberon Waugh. The twelve wines he has selected come from Chile, Australia, New Zealand and France, with an excellent Spanish sherry to awaken the taste buds.
The twenty-five runners-up will receive a pair of Tickets to see "Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell" at the Apollo Theatre in London, starring Tom Conti. Since the show opened in October 1989 it has won critical acclaim and has consistently been in the top ten of London shows.
How to take part Each issue published in March will carry four questions for you to answer. Once all five issues have been published, you should send your answer forms in to us as soon as possible to the special competition address that will be printed in our issue of March 31st 1990. The competition closes on April 30th 1990. The winner, and the 25 runners-up, will be announced in The Spectator dated May 19th. The winner of wine cellar will also be notified by post.
