Win a case of Errazuriz Don Maximiano Founder’s Reserve

We have a fabulous prize for the wine lovers among you this month - a six bottle case of Don Maximiano Founder’s Reserve 2013 from Vina Errazuriz*, one of the best known wineries in Chile. THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED.

Don Maximiano Founder’s Reserve (which is on sale in Waitrose Cellar for £54.50 a bottle) is a Bordeaux-inspired blend made in homage to the founder of the winery. The blend changes each year but the 2013 is predominantly cabernet sauvignon with 19% malbec, 6% carmenère and 5% petit verdot.

According to the winemaker’s notes “The resulting wine is fresh, layered with distinctive minerality and nuance. The refined tannins support a delicious texture and prolonged by a lingering finish providing great pleasure even at this early stage of its life.” (You can find a full description of the vintage, the vineyards from which it was drawn and the vinification on their website.)

You can obviously drink it with pleasure now (with roast lamb or a steak, I suggest FB) but it will keep for a good 10 or more years.

The closing date for the competition is 11.59pm GMT on Sunday March 31st 2019 and you must be 18 or over and live in the UK to enter. For other terms and conditions see below.

no spam

Fiona Beckett on March 18 2019 at 08:51

Not totally confident we've nailed this but the volume of (entirely justified) complaints seems to have lessened a bit. If you're still having problems could you possibly email me at telling me how you're accessing the site - computer, tablet or phone and what make - and what search engine you're using. If you could send a screenshot of the code you're being asked for that would be great too. Thanks!

As with all the other posts, box appears asking me to complete spam check - but there isn't one.

Anthony Bird on March 16 2019 at 10:45

Much as I would like to win this prize, I am afraid that if I did I cannot afford to drink it!!
What I would really like to do is visit that magnificient location and put a bit of effort into replicating the photograph and shooting a few more , of course!!

Johnny Hadow on March 16 2019 at 09:45

'Please complete spam check' still appears
but on scrolling down entry is acknowledged.
Thank you.

Fiona Beckett on March 16 2019 at 08:41

Just to repeat again you shouldn't be seeing a spam check when you enter the competition but I know some of you are. We're still trying to fathom why this is!

Susan Gilley on March 16 2019 at 08:35

What spam check?

Bob GREGGS on March 16 2019 at 08:21

Spam check?

James on March 16 2019 at 07:42

Been trying for 2 days now to get past this stupid anti-spam check!

Malcolm Ewing on March 16 2019 at 02:19

Anti-spam has gone to lunch!

Fi butler on March 15 2019 at 18:23

Anti spam not working

Stephen Hyde on March 15 2019 at 18:15

Like other people the anti spam check isn't working. Please can you confirm that you received my competition entry?

Fiona Anderson on March 15 2019 at 18:14

Anti spam not working. I’ll try again tomorrow.

Leah Tonna on March 15 2019 at 17:27

Anti spam not working, Cheers anyway!

Fiona Beckett on March 15 2019 at 17:04

We've changed the Captcha to see if that helps but not sure what else we can do. If you are still having problems maybe you'd write to me at and tell me what browser/device you're using, (Windows/Mac/phone( and what is coming up on screen when you try and enter the competiton (take a screenshot if you can). We've never had a problem before so must confess we're flummoxed! So sorry

W. Khason on March 15 2019 at 16:55

No spam check and no acknowledgement. Tried twice now.

Ursula Dias on March 15 2019 at 16:47

My entry was acknowledged without a Captcha so must be ok.

Fiona Beckett on March 15 2019 at 16:27

Sorry, everybody. We're still grappling with this. The system requires Captcha for comments but not to enter the competiton so we're not sure what's going on. Both my webmaster and I have just managed to enter without any difficulty. But we're trying to get to the bottom of it!

Judith Clark on March 15 2019 at 16:15

Vaughan Pearce on March 15 2019 at 15:21

Maggie Porter on March 15 2019 at 15:01

Not sure if I’ve been entered into prize draw, spam check didn’t seem to be working

Del Crookes on March 15 2019 at 14:59

Can’t complete competition because the anti-spam bit isn’t working.

David on March 15 2019 at 14:57

your spam check request comes up when submitting a competition application, but the reCAPTCHA box doesn't?
