It’s back! Millesima has the pleasure to announce the fourth edition of its annual Blog Awards
Remember, Millesima created its Blog Awards in 2013 to honour the passionate wine blogging community and to share outstanding wine writing with our 90,000+ clients around the world. In 2017, we are excited to give a more “global” aspect to the contest.
The Blog Awards open in Asia!
This year, the Blog Awards will cover three zones: the USA, Europe, and Asia. The three areas will have the same three categories each with separate winners and prizes. (Please note that the articles must be written in English; however, you may use an online translation tool to convert the language to English).
The heart and soul of Millesima comes from our rich history and unique ties to the city and region of Bordeaux. Yet, this year, without renouncing our heritage, we have decided to enlarge our outlook to include writing about wine regions across the globe. As such, the three categories are:
- Wine & Food Pairing Award
- Wine Travel Award
- Wine Reporter Award (an open category celebrating the best in wine writing)
Two Key Rounds
As with last year, this year’s contest will take place in two rounds.
- For the first round, we invite all wine bloggers from the USA, Europe, and Asia to submit an article related to one of the three categories. Three international wine professionals will select the 21 finalists (of which the list will be released on the 16th of January), with three finalists in each category in each zone, with one exception:
- The second round will be put to a vote! The 21 finalists as selected by our jury will be voted on by the public on our Facebook page. The 7 winners will be revealed the night of January 27th.
The 2017 Edition Prizes
Our 21 finalists will win a large format bottle from a top Bordeaux estate.
The seven winners will win an all-expenses paid trip to Bordeaux, during the famous “en primeur” week, from the 1st-7th of April, 2017. This week will include a private guided tour of the city of Bordeaux, a gala welcoming soirée, exclusive tastings of the 2016 vintage en primeur of the member Chateaux of the Union des Grands Crus, and more.
Mark Your Calendars!
Entries to the contest will open on Monday, December 5th. For any additional information, do not hesitate to contact our Events department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
