I’m giving away a prize people… better keep reading!
Today is an incredibly special day for me. Not only is it just another day in the midst of my favorite time of the year (the holidays), it is my twin boys first birthday! Holy wow did that year fly by!!!
I have a whirlwind of memories and emotions attached to that very day, one year ago, December 6, 2010, when those little guys came into this world and I am so ready to celebrate. But, since we are thousands of miles away from most of our family and friends this year, we are keeping it very low key for their first birthday. No huge party this year. Though I am sure we will have plenty of opportunities for future birthdays to go big!
So instead, I want to celebrate virtually, with YOU – my readers. Going along with the holiday spirit of giving I want to give one lucky reader a special gift… yes, WINE!
I have partnered with Tapeña (tah-PAY-nyah) wines to have a special contest by featuring their food friendly value wines. One lucky winner will receive a prize package valued at over $100.
For those of you who may not be familiar with the brand:
Tapeña—the wine with the little fork on the label—is a big blend of tradition, camaraderie and good taste. A fusion of the terms tapas, the American equivalent of bar hopping with an epicurean twist, and peña, a gathering of close friends, Tapeña is a food-friendly, value-priced wine at $9.99.
Tapeña is the vision of the Ferrer family, whose Spanish wine experience dates back to the 1500s. Better known for their Freixenet cava house, the Ferrers also own 11 bodegas in Spain, the wines of which are sold around the globe.
Tapeña has four wines under their label (two reds, one white, and one rosé) and all of them are included in this giveaway:
2010 Rosé (blend of 55% Monastrell, 40% Garnacha, 5% Shiraz)
What I appreciate about their brand is that they are all about food and friends, and experiencing them together along with a bottle of wine. In Spain this is inherent to their culture! To me, that’s what wine is about – sharing it with those you love over a good meal and creating memories. Some of my own greatest memories with my friends involve the sharing of food, wine, and laughter and this is a piece of my lifestyle and culture I wish to pass onto my own boys and something I hope they, too, learn to appreciate.
So in honor of the season of giving, and a celebration of me surviving my first year with twins my boys birthday, I want to give a prize package to a reader in hopes that you can create some holiday memories this year with your friends and family.
The prize package will contain – a bottle of each wine (Tapeña Tempranillo, Garnacha, Verdejo, and Rosé), and many other goodies, including a very thorough and awesome Spanish food cookbook, wine charms, magnets, and a very handy corkscrew (something I can never have enough of). A prize package valued at over $100!
