GIVEAWAY #3: Blood Into Wine AND Adventures in Wine

Tired of all the crazy shopping and sales? Still stuffed from Thanksgiving? Give yourself a gift and try to win a DVD copy of Blood Into Wine and the book, Adventures in Wine: True Stories of Vineyards and Vintages Around the World.

What do you have to do to win this time? Simple. You just need to share! In the comments section, tell us about your favorite wine for the holiday season. Whether a type of wine (ie, cabernet sauvignon) or a specific label (ie, Chandon Sparkling Wine), tell us what it is and why you enjoy it this time of year.

So, here are the rules for this go-round:

Enter a comment sharing your favorite wine for the holidays and why you enjoy it this time of year.

I’ll leave the comments section open through 11:55 pm EST, Saturday, Dec 4. Any comments entered after that point (in case I’m not awake to close the comments) will not be entered in the contest. On Monday, Dec 6, I’ll use Random.org to select the number of the winning comment. It will be totally random and is only valid if the winner meets the following conditions:

1. You leave an actual comment on this post and do NOT email me. I’m literally buried in email I haven’t answered from months ago. That’s how many emails I get. I know you folks prefer to email rather than comment, but I need you to use the comments section, okay?

2. When you fill out the comment form, please leave a valid name in the correct field, not a user name. Please don’t make me send an email to wineloverboy2506 or some such thing. I won’t do it. I’d much rather email Dear Emily, You won!

3. When you fill out the comment form, you must include a valid email address that you actually check. I’ll post the name and comment number of the winner on Sunday, but I still need to contact you to negotiate a way to get this DVD to you.

4. You only enter one time, one comment per person.

5. Just a reminder about our Comments policy – in particular, the part about being excellent to each other. If I think you’re being rude to another commenter, I will delete you.

    I like any of the lesser known red varietals, though I think my favorite is Cab Franc

    So many times I go to the grocery store and everything is dry or bitter. Anything from Vinoklet is amazing. My favorite is La Dolce Vita. It’s a very sweet red. Love going to Vinoklet’s Wine festivals! There is also a winery in Port Clinton Ohio called Mon Ami. There wine is very similar to Vinoklet’s and is also very good. I like their Pink Catawba.

    My favorite wine at this time of the year is a champagne from Egley-Ouriet. A close second would be a Loire Cab Franc, since it goes so well with so many foods!

    My favorite wine for the season? As long as it’s white and sparkling and my uncle is raising a glass of it to make a toast to all 20-some members of my extended family while my cousin’s daughter and the neighbors’ kids run all over my parents’ house … it doesn’t really matter.
