To offer added encouragement to our viewers to visit your Region, your Cellar Door, we invite wineries and wine tourists to submit your "Cellar Door" photography. It might be ever so humble, a tin shed, dirt floor, sun streaming through holes in a rusty tin roof, to ultra modern, stainless steel sculptures, conducted winery tours on the hour, displays of local artists paintings, smiling trained uniformed greeters, and everything in between. What's more, it can be from anywhere in the world. Australasia, certainly but let's also hear from Rheims, Tuscany, Israel, Mexico, Uruguay, Niagara, Lebanon, Greece, Penedes, Slovenia, Paarl, Mendoza. Just to name a few, we receive entries from all of these places. We will ask you for the Cellar Door Manager's name, too.
"Is Audrey (English)/Athena (Greek)/Angelique (French)/Abriana (Italian) in today?" Such an easy conversation starter for visitors to your "Cellar Door". Why not have Audrey/Athena/Angelique/Abriana, even the whole team, beckoning, welcoming, greeting, on the Cellar Door steps? It's free.
Winemaker, wine worker, wine lover, wine tourist, I hope you will choose to SUBMIT your own "Cellar Door" photography for consideration for inclusion on the Competition's website. If chosen, there is no charge for this service.
Warren Mason, Competition Director.
