NOTE: this wine giveaway has ended....see who the winners were.
Here it is: the dual wine giveaway! The winner will get a bottle of Layer Cake Wine, courtesy of Vintage Point, Napa's hippest new wine boutique, and a wine consultation or shopping experience with New York's savviest wine expert, Anu Karwa, owner of Swirl Events (can be telephone, so you can be from anywhere). Here's what you're vying for, and here is how to enter:
BOTTLE OF LAYER CAKE from VINTAGE POINT
Layer Cake is the most delicious wine ever. Inspired by chocolate cake baked by the founder's grandparents, Layer Cake is taking wine drinkers by storm. In the words of the creator's Grandfather: "The vines," he would say, "lived in layers of soil just like the layers in Grandma’s cake; each layer bringing a different flavor." He explained the flavors and smells of the wine in a similar way, always comparing them to the layer cake sitting on the kitchen counter.
Layer Cake is represented by Vintage Point, which offers services to wineries in sales, marketing, importation and general management. Vintage Point is independently owned and exclusively focuses on winery brand and market development within the US, Canada and Caribbean marketplace in the ultra-premium and luxury price points. Their mission is to help these producers overcome the barriers they face in getting their wines to market.
Win a bottle of Layer Cake, and have it shipped to you to enjoy on a Friday or Saturday evening in the new dusk of spring. If Napa Valley is feeling generous, there may even be TWO winners of Layer Cake.
TO ENTER: Go to the shopping destination for Vintage Point and report back to FashionMista via the Comments below which wine that Vintage Point represents would you like to drink right now (if it's morning time when you're reading this, then think of this evening).
