Boston Wine Expo

Boston Wine Expo

Happy Friday! I love Friday giveaways, and I have a great one for you. Remember when I got a sneak peek of the Boston Wine Expo? At that event, we learned about the many enhancements to the Expo, including a blogger program, social media lounge, new seminars, and more. The wine expo, which takes place in February, is certainly a great way to get in out of the cold, learn about new wines, and try delicious food made by Boston-area chefs.

To started getting people excited about the expo, I have been given a set of Boston Wine Expo Sunday Grand Tasting tickets to give to one lucky reader. The tasting is Sunday, February 17 from 1:00 – 5:00, in Boston.

According to the Boston Wine Expo website, the grand tasting is “A Global Adventure In A Glass”.

Sample wine from over 185 wineries around the globe and taste culinary creations from the area’s most popular restaurants. Plus there’s lifestyle and additional food exhibits…all presented in a dramatic new layout showcasing the four main wine regions of the world – North America, Western Europe, the Mediterranean and the Southern Hemisphere.
Other highlights:

Two stages spotlight the hottest chefs in New England

Social Media Lounge will be located in the center of the Grand Tasting, the Lounge provides a fun spot to view which wines attendees “like best” via the mobile app

More restaurants and food sampling – Cuisine from restaurants paired with wines in the Grand Tasting

 

To enter: You must be 21 years old. By entering you confirm that you are 21 or over.

Leave a comment telling me your favorite wine right now. (Since we did the Hooray for Vouvray tasting, I am loving Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley. Also recently fell in love with Riesling from Chateau Tanunda)

For an extra entry, tweet “I want to win tickets to @bostonwineexpo from @traveleatlovemm”

I will choose a winner next Friday morning (before we leave for Ireland and Italy aaahhhhhh!) Cheers!

    One of my current favorite wins is Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet in part due to a great visit to Napa/Sonoma in September.

    I LOVE the NY Finger Lakes Reislings. My favorite is Red Newt Reisling, or Red Newt Blue. But there are so many to pick from! Would love the chance to try those & others at the Boston Wine Expo!

    I am planning to attend this event too (so no need to include me in the giveaway). Even though I can’t drink, it sounds like a fabulous event!

    I love the Wine Expo and finding out about different wines and varietals. Right now my wine of choice is Shalestone Vineyards Cabernet Frank Reserve. Who says the Finger Lakes can’t do reds??

    Currently my favorite wine is Argiolas Costamolino. This is a 100% Vermentino from the island of Sardenia of Italy. Its super fresh, clean and crisp. It has a wonderful full bodied mouthfeel with notes of soft citrus, apple and mild floral flavors. The acidity is perfect. I love this wine with spicy seafood, crunchy green salads, sushi and creamy cheeses. You gotta try it!! Cheers!

    I’d love to go to the Expo!
    I never have the same wine twice (so many new ones to try out there), but the last one I had was Kunde Estate Cabernet Sauvignon.

    Wow, what a fun giveaway! I would live to attend. My go-to wine is usually Merlot, but last weekend I tried (and loved) two new Coppola wines – the Sante Pinot Noir and Sante Chardonnay and found them surprisingly delicious for $10!

    I’m usually a big Rioja girl, but lately I’ve been loving Garnacha from Montsant. SO good.

    definitely chianti classico after our honeymoon to italy – memories and tastes great

    I’m so happy it’s winter because I have always loved the full and peppery spice of Garnachas. I’ve also been known to love really “dirty” old vine zinfandels (“lead” is a favorite note of mine). I miss having such easy access to wine in California, but the wine expo would be a great substitute ;)

    Ooh what a giveaway! My current fave is Cakebread Cellars’ 2009 Dancing Bear Cabernet. I brought it home from a spring trip to Wine Country and – wow – it has incredible flavor!
