What's involved and what's in it for you...
CROWD BLENDTM is back again this year and we need you to help us to create the perfect Rosé. Register now to be a part of this one-of-a kind project to figure out just what Kiwis actually want.*
Once you discover your perfect blend, we want you to name it and share it with your mates! Our winemaker will take your submissions, choose the best name and create the ultimate
limited-edition Rosé. Everyone who registers will not only be credited on the bottle but will also receive a 750ml bottle of the winning Rosé at the end, just to say thanks for all the hard work.
If you are keen to take part just follow these easy steps.
Step 1: Register
Registrations can be purchased here and are $25 per person and everyone who participates will receive a blending pack of 3x375ml bottles of different Rosés and at the end of the campaign, a limited-edition bottle of the winning Rosé blend. This will have a custom designed label featuring the names of all who participated.
Registrations close on the 10th of September 2018.
Step 2: Start Blending
Channel your inner winemaker - smell, taste and mix it up to create your perfect blend.
Unsure of where to start? Check out the tutorial video hosted by Pete Turner below.
Step 3: Name It
Unlock your creative genius – work out what a fitting name for your blend will be, e.g. ‘Summer fling’, ‘Miss Pink’, ‘Pink Flamingo’ ‘Brosé’…
Step 4: Submit
Submit your entry by posting a pic on one of your social media accounts with the bottle & blending card, introduce the name and describe your blend in the caption, tag @the_hunting_lodge and add #crowdblend to go in the draw to win the grand prize.
The winner will not only have their chosen name as the limited edition 2018 Marlborough Pinot Noir Rosé but will also enjoy a VIP experience at The Hunting Lodge for them and 3 friends. Package includes a limo ride to and from The Hunting Lodge, a behind the scenes tour of our winery, a wine tasting with our winemakers and lunch at The Hunting Lodge Restaurant and you may also end up taking home a goodie or two.
Submit your blend by the 14th of September 2018 - any entries after this date will not be eligible
Step 5: Vote
Over three weeks from Monday August 27th , we will be sharing some of our favourite name entries of the week on Facebook, asking you to vote on which is best! The entry with the most votes that week will automatically go into the final draw – that’s a 1 in 3 chance of winning! Our winemaker will select the best name from this final selection. Also, everyone who votes goes into the draw to win one of 3 $150 Flo and Frankie vouchers.
Winner will be announced on Monday the 24th of September 2018.
*CROWD BLENDTM is only available to New Zealand residents aged over 18 years and is limited to one registration per person.
