Whilst some could argue that every day’s Sav Blanc day, we were overjoyed to discover there’s an official date dedicated to our favourite icy cold tipple. Friday 5 May 2017 is International Sauvignon Blanc day, and to celebrate this particularly heady Friyay, Yealands is offering five lucky Peppermint readers the chance to win a six-pack of Peter Yealands Sauvignon Blanc (valued at $108 each)!
Founded by Peter Yealands back in 2008, the winery combines an aim to produce world-leading wines with a mission to be the world’s most sustainable wine producer. These days a multitude of planet-friendly practices – including solar and wind power, wetland development and natural pest control – have seen the vineyard winning multiple sustainability awards and receiving CarbonZero accreditation (the very first winery in the world to do so from inception). Oh, and the classical music they play to the vines leads to 16% larger eggs from the hens closest to the tunes – an adorable fact if ever we heard one.
To be in with a chance to win a drop or six of Yealand’s deliciousness, just send your name, date of birth and postal address, with the subject line ‘Yealands’, to email@example.com by 5pm on Friday, 19th May 2017. Good luck!
