Besides prizes of Taittinger Prestige Rosé, all finalists will win a unique trip to Taittinger’s iconic cellars in Reims, while the final six will be given a year’s complimentary membership to the Wine Guild of the UK and will be invited to attend its Annual Winter Banquet at the Vintners Hall. The final three will also receive a free subscription to The Caterer.
