Win Passes to Great Grapes

The Great Grapes Festival will be taking place June 12th and 13th at Oregon Ridge Park. On Saturday, at 1pm, I will be participating in a cook-off with fellow local bloggers Kit Pollard of Mango & Ginger (and one of my partners in crime at All Top Chef) and John Donahue of The Baltimore Snacker. The not-so-secret ingredient is bacon, so come on over and see what the three of us will be concocting with everyone's favorite porcine food product!

In addition to the blogger cook-off on Saturday, there will be a blogger panel at 3pm on Sunday the 13th, featuring Bon Appetit Hon's Wendy Mosteiko, What’s To Eat Baltimore‘s Liz Stambaugh, The Upstart Kitchen‘s Wendy Tien, Jessica Lemmo of Adventures in Baltimore Restaurants, and Dara Bunjon of Dining Dish acting as moderator.

Tickets to Great Grapes are $20, which includes a tasting glass, or $30 for a two-day pass. Non-drinkers can get in for $15 with a "designated drivers" ticket. And two of you can get in for FREE if you answer this simple question: what is your favorite wine? Leave your answer in the comments and I'll pick the winners via random drawing. Please make sure to leave your e-mail address with your comment so I can contact you if you are a winner. Tickets will be left at will call, so I'll also need your names.

Contest ends Sunday, June 6th.

Hope I see you at the festival! And good luck!

chardonnay, unless it's really hot, and the savingnon blanc :-)

And no need to enter me...I'll be in Denver.

I've had lots of really good wines, but I'd have to say that my favorite is syrah/shiraz. Among whites, I like a good, dry riesling.

There are a lot of wines I like . . . too difficult to pick one favorite! I prefer reds, and lately have been loving on the 2007 Bogle Cabernet Sauvignon -- it's good and inexpensive (around $12). I also love Rawson's Retreat from Penfold's (haven't had a Penfolds that hasn't been at least good if not great).

No need to enter me, either -- I won't be able to make it to Baltimore for the event! ;)

Forgot to mention...I'm happy to share my wine preferences, but I can't actually make it to Baltimore that weekend.

My fave would have to be the St Michaels Gollywobbler (red) tied with any german riesling.
