French push new profile via prizes

14 May, 2010

The new version of the Top 100 Vins de Pays competition and south west France are celebrating their presence at next week’s London International Wine Fair by giving six OLN readers the chance to win a case of wine.

Now called the Top 100 PGI France following European reforms last year, the competition aims to raise the profile of Protected Geographical Indication wines.

OLN’s Tim Atkin MW will present trophies at 3.30pm on May 18, followed by a tutored tasting at 4.30pm on the Fast Track to France, stand F40/2.

Meanwhile, south west France’s stand, G22/1, will feature a Discovery Table which will focus each day of the three-day fair on four key appellations or denominations from the south west.

For your chance to win a case of wine, answer either of the following questions: what do the letters PGI refer to, or which indigenous grape variety is the main component in the wines of Fronton? Email your answer to by May 28.
