Wine Quiz Competition Winner 2002!


The Quiz Champ of 2002 was decided over four days, between December 6th and 9th 2002. 207 people entered the contest, from nine different countries.

Although many people just missed out on a chance at the prize with a fantastic score of 18 or 19, only 25 bright sparks scored the perfect 20. These names went into the draw to decide the 2002 Champion. Congratulations to Bill Nanson who was the lucky winner and receives the Quiz Champ tee-shirt - only the fifth awarded in history.

All 25 who scored a perfect 20/20 are real winners of course, and I wish they could all get a tee-shirt!
