Vote for fav indy wine shop
There’s still time to vote for your favourite independent wine shop in a competition launched by concerned McLaren Vale wine producer, Dudley Brown, of Inkwell Wines (tastings). Brown hopes to recognize the 40 top indy retailers in the land. The winner’s prize is a two-day stay at the Chapel Hill Retreat in McLaren Vale. Go to his blog site: thewinerules.wordpress.com, to lodge your vote.
Voting closes on Friday (June 28) and results will be announced on June 30. Brown says although the competition is still a little “half-baked” and is relying on social media, he hopes that in time it might prove “a valuable bulwark against the duopoly’s inexorable march to the sea”, while also helping lift standards.
