Be prepared for a Wine Bar War at Imbibe Live...

Wine Bar War

48 wines, 16 sommeliers, 4 bars, 2 days, 1 winner. This can only mean one thing... the big Wine Bar War will be happening at Imbibe Live this July.

Four teams of top sommeliers will be battling it out to be crowned Wine Bar War Champion and win a trip of a lifetime to Chile.

The teams will go head to head to conceive and create a Chilean Wine Bar, then open for business at Imbibe Live.

Wine writer and TV presenter, Joe Wadsack will be on hand to compere during the event. Judges will include Ronan Sayburn MS, Jane Parkinson, Anne Krebiehl MW and editor of Imbibe Magazine, Chris Losh, as well as the winners of last year’s competition, team “El Conquistador”.

Importantly, the Imbibe Live visitors will be casting a critical eye over the competing wine bars and choosing a favourite for their vote. Each of the judges will be looking at the overall design and concept, but also the service and the wine lists that the teams present.

The judges will be looking at the suitability of the list for a wine bar, its balance and creativity, as well as how well it reflects Chile’s regionality and versatility.

Last year saw over 2000 votes cast by suitably impressed visitors to the Wine Bar War stand and the atmosphere was electric throughout as the teams battled it out to be the best.

Come and see what it is all about and be one of those judges yourself.

Visit the Wine Bar War stand (B50) and make sure you cast your vote.
