GIVEAWAY: Seattle Holiday Wine Fest Nov 12 & 13

I love red wine all year long, but it’s even better when the weather turns cold. Perfect timing for The 2016 Seattle Holiday Wine Fest which comes to the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall November 12 & 13.
The organizers of this global celebration of wine know that November is a busy time of year, which is why they are offering THREE tasting sessions
Saturday, Nov. 12:  Noon – 4pm    ($40 admission)
Saturday, Nov. 12:  5pm – 9pm     ($45 admission)
Sunday, Nov. 13:    Noon – 4pm    ($40 admission)
I’ll be going on Sunday! This event will feature a mix of local, regional, national and international wines as well as ciders, spirits, gourmet cuisine and other vendors. One thing that sets this event apart from others is that visitors will be able to purchase wines/ciders/spirits at the venue! I’m looking forward to discovering some new favorites and picking up some bottles to bring to holiday events my friends and family hosts (and of course keep a few at home for cozy nights in). Get your tickets here. Already got them? RSVP and invite friends to the Facebook event page.
The event benefits the City Fruit mission, which promotes the cultivation of urban fruit in order to nourish people, build community, and protect the climate.
Want to enter to win 2 tickets? 
I’m giving away 3 pairs of tickets – a pair for each session!
To enter via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, visit my giveaway form here. We’ll have a winner for each of the three sessions.
Don’t forget to charge your cell phones (take photos of your favorite labels so you can remember them later), bring a water bottle (hydration is key!), and bring a bag to take your wine purchases and other goodies home in.
