Edmonton Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival Ticket Giveway!

WINNERS ANNOUNCED

Thank you to everyone that entered my giveaway! It was a success! I also had the chance to learn about the different wines and beers that everyone enjoys :). Steve and Jason you have each won yourself a pair of tickets to Friday's event! DM me your email addresses so I can email you the information! 

Thanks to everyone who entered! oh and my favourite wine as of late is Mission Hill's 2010 Syrah.

Have fun!


If you've been following my blog or twitter account you'll know that I had the fantastic opportunity to visit the Okanagan area this past summer. It was my first opportunity to bask in the beautiful weather, enjoy the scenery, and of course to sample a variety of wines from Kelowna down towards Naramata. The wineries are amazing over there and the opportunity to sample so many wines is such a great experience. 

As the Okanagan area is a relatively lengthy drive from Edmonton (approx. 10 hours), the Edmonton Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival is a great opportunity to sample a variety of wines, beers, scotch all of which are paired with food! There will be local Edmonton restaurants providing tastings of their food, wine and beer providers.  

The event takes place on Friday November 2 (4-10pm) and Saturday November 3 (3-10pm) at the Shaw Conference Centre (Hall A-C). Please check their website for further details and ticket information.

I'm excited to announce that I have two pairs of tickets for the Friday November 2 session to giveaway! This is only for entry into the event If you would like to sample wine, food or other beverages, you will need to purchase sampling coupons (50 cents each).

    1. mm..nice choice on the Malbec! I do find that as of late, I'm enjoying wines that are less dry. Still enjoy the full bodied wines, but not too many earthy flavours to it!
