How does it work?

The Art Of Somms Challenge entry period was October 19th until Dec 8th.

Step 2: tell everyone why YOUR Bordeaux wine selection is the best. Awaken your creativity and post your #theArtofSomms Bordeaux moment on IG. A variety of digital tools and stickers can help!

Step 3: Win prizes! 21 prizes will be awarded to the most creative, best Bordeaux moment, and most shared posts.
