Would you like to win two free tickets to wine country? No, I don’t mean Northern California. I mean Grand Junction, Colorado. This city on the western slope of the Rockies is the hub of Colorado’s emerging wine industry.
DrinkLocalWine.com, an organization I helped create, is holding its fourth annual conference April 28 in Denver, bringing bloggers, writers, and wine enthusiasts together to learn about and taste Colorado wines. Tickets are on sale through the website, and they’re pretty reasonable – just $65 will get you all this:
- Three Colorado and regional wine seminars, featuring some of the top names in Colorado and national food and wine.
- The Colorado Blind Challenge, pairing California and Colorado wine in a blind tasting.
- The Colorado Twitter Taste-Off, where you can sip, tweet and repeat wine from two dozen of Colorado’s best producers.
Oh, there’s lunch, too. (And if you can’t make a day of it, $35 will buy admission to either the seminars and lunch or the Twitter Taste-Off.)
And what about those tickets to wine country? DLW.com is giving away two round-trip Amtrak tickets from Denver to Grand Junction, through some of the most spectacular scenery in the country. To enter, all you have to do is visit the DrinkLocalWine.com Facebook page and click on the Sweepstakes button. We’d appreciate it if you click the “Like” button while you’re there, too, but that isn’t necessary. The sweepstakes closes April 26.
See you in Denver!
