You Think You Know?

We all know someone who really thinks they know wine—but even the greatest connoisseurs can be fooled—or should we say “boxed.”

Fortunately, Black Box Wines has provided us an opportunity to prove, yet again, that price and packaging aren’t always a tell-tale sign of quality.

Not only has Black Box produced the wine necessary to prove the point (Cabernet Sauvignon from California, Shiraz from Australia, and Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand to name a few), but they’re offering a $10,000 prize to the person who can pull it off the best.

The deadline for video submissions is November 30th, so you still have time to channel your creativity toward a "Candid Camera" wine short. The winner will be determined democratically by the wine sipping masses, so rally the friends with whom you imbibe to help you take home the crown!
