Entering your wines into the Sommelier Wine Awards is simple, but how can you ensure you have a winning entry?

It takes minutes to register and begin uploading your wines so here are our top tips to make it as easy as possible to submit a winning entry…

First of all, take a look at our entry pack for 2018, with all key dates and information you need to know.

Then, make sure you take advantage of our handy features to make entering easy:

- Start uploading your entry early - you can always save them to your Portfolio and return to it whenever you like.

- Make sure you've fully considered which categories you need to enter your wines into and check the eligibility.

- If you've entered wines in the past, revisit your Portfolio and re-enter, follow this step-by-step guide - simple!

- If you're a UK supplier - co-ordinate your own entry if you can, OR inform the producers you distribute eith early. They can enter for you. 

- Enter the kind of wines that sommeliers like to see. Think of food-friendliness throughout. Value for money is more important than sheer bling.

- For those entering from outside the UK, confirm your wine's trade price with your UK distributor. Wines with no UK distribution are welcome to enter. See here for what price to submit. 

- Keep an eye on all key deadlines, you'll find them all here

Finally, after uploading your wines, don’t forget to submit them for entry! Of course, if you’d like any assistance with your entry please do get in touch, any time - swa.helpline@reedexpo.co.uk
