Margaret River Festival gives away a free 'Sea of Wine'!

"The annual free online competition is a great way of attracting people to the Festival website www.margaretriverfestival.com and letting people know about this year's stellar line up of wineries, amazing entertainment and gourmet tastings, commented John Bradbury, Event Manager."

The free competition, giving away 40 cases of premium Margaret River wine, is run as part of the Festival by the Margaret River Wine Industry Association (MRWIA) and is expected to receive about 15,000 entries that will be added to those over 3,500 already received in 2008. Together it will help to build an extensive ongoing database of consumers and visitors interested in the Margaret River region; its wines and wineries , our many other natural attractions and attractive lifestyle that we can develop an ongoing relationship with on behalf of Association members through their monthly email newsletter.

CEO of the MRWIA Nick Power said “as far as we are aware we are the only wine region in Australia with this type of marketing initiative and it is a tremendous promotional platform for us to have. I also had the fun task of calling the winner of the Win-A-Cellar Competition from 2008, Harry Plunkett, a very fit seventy six years young (76) and dedicated wine lover, of Perth who literally fell off his chair when I told him the fantastic news.”

There is no fee to enter and entrants can only register once and must be over 18 years of age to go into the online draw. The Wine-A-Cellar Competition finishes at the close of business on 17th April and the lucky winner will be announced at the Vintage Festival on 18th April 2009. Festival tickets have gone on sale and are available through Ticketmaster or visit www.margaretriverfestival.com.
