Twist your way to Portugal with Mensa wines. Mensa the innovative range of wines with an unexpected twist, is giving wine lovers the chance to win a trip to Portugal in association with Helix Cork.
Launched last year as the first South African wine supported by an augmented reality app taking storytelling to the next level, Mensa wines are sealed with the ground breaking Helix cork closure that allows you to twist open and reseal the wine by hand.
Available exclusively with Mensa wine purchases at Checkers stores and liquor shops, the competition gives one lucky shopper the opportunity to explore the land of cork on a 5-night visit to Portugal for two. To qualify, you need to purchase two bottles of Mensa Cabernet Sauvignon between 15 April and 5 May 2019 and follow the instructions on your till slip. Remember to keep your till slip as proof of purchase.
The prize includes two nights in Lisbon to explore this beautiful historic sea port harking back to the intrepid mariners who circumvented the Cape in their tall ships. Other exciting places to visit include a night in Evora, the capital of Portugal’s Alentejo region famous for its ancient Roman temple, followed by two nights in Porto, the centre of Port wine. A visit to two Port producers, a cork forest to watch the cork harvest and a ride in a hot air balloon are also on the itinerary.
Mensa is one of the first wines sealed with the ultra-convenient Helix cork closure. Just pull – twist – pour and your Mensa wine is ready to drink. The easy twist Helix cork lets you enjoy all the benefits of cork and glass, namely quality and sustainability, with the resealable convenience of a screw cap.
Mensa Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied red teeming with dark Chocolate and blackberries. The two white wines in the range crafted for everyday enjoyment are a refreshing Sauvignon Blanc with citrus and tropical notes, and a delicious Chardonnay Pinot Noir with a vibrant citrus and red berry character.
