Press Release   •   Oct 27, 2010 14:58 BST

Norwich based wine drinkers win once-in-a-lifetime trip to become a winemaker for a week.

UK wine retailer Naked Wines, an online market supporting independent winemakers, has teamed up with the Government of South Australia to send two lucky customers on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Australia to blend their own wine to be sold to the UK public exclusively at http://www.nakedwines.com

The winners Kathy and Chris Payne, both from Norwich, are spending a few days under the watchful eye of Naked Wines' producer Jock Harvey from McLaren Vale , before heading off to Kangaroo Island and Adelaide to explore other vineyards and popular tourist spots.

Kathy: "We couldn't believe it when Naked Wines broke the good news - what a prize! McLaren Vale looks like a stunning region, and we're both a big fan of Jock's wines. Let's hope we're up to the job of working in the winery!

Rowan Gormley, Founder of Naked Wines added, “For any wine lover, nothing beats a trip to the vineyard, to see the love, graft and painstaking detail that winemakers pour into making their wine. And Jock and his brother Tom, who use some of the oldest vines in Oz, are shining examples.”

A big thank you to the Government of South Australia for organising such a fun-packed trip.
