Giveaway! Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival Tickets

We have a winner – Congratulations to Camille Lorieau (Number 19)! 

Wow this blogging business is way more awesome than I expected as I am able to share some of that awesomeness (with actions and not just words) with all of you. I have a pair of Friday night (November 2) entrance tickets to give away for the 11th Annual Edmonton Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival!

Wine

Before we get into all the details on how you enter to win, let’s just talk about the event itself. This year will be my first year attending and I am very excited to be surrounded by food and wine (I don’t even know where to start). The Edmonton Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival will be taking place on Friday November 2 (4-10 pm) and Saturday November 3 (3-10 pm) at the Shaw Conference Centre in Halls A-C.

There will be a plethora of wine (and spirits and beer) from a number of wineries and spirits and beer producers plus great food from several local restaurants and hotels (Links will take you directly to the pdf list of participating vendors) for you to enjoy. There will be interesting things like spiced whiskys, hemp-based vodkas and fruit-infused beers! On the food front – potential samples include bison gyozas and a port and pomegranate truffle.

While you indulge, you’ll also have opportunities to chat with the experts on the products you’re tasting. If you do happen to find a wine, spirit or beer that you love, Liquor Depot will have a store on-site so you can pick it up on your way out (I love one stop shopping!). There is a Liquor Connect booth that has free wine holder plates for the first 1000 people who stop by the booth each night so there are some perks for arriving early!

Please note that while I can get the winners in the door – you’re on your own with the sampling coupons. The coupons are $0.50 each and can be purchased in the Grand Tasting Hall (Cash Only). Each item will range from 1 to 20 (or more) coupons so if you’re planning on sampling luxury items, be prepared to hand over more coupons.

How to Win!
Let’s keep things simple for my first giveaway:

  • Just leave me a comment below saying what item(s) you definitely want to sample.
  • Tickets are for entrance on Friday night only.
  • Please note that this is an adults only (18+) event and minors (including infants/babies) are not permitted to attend.
  • And please make sure the email you leave in the email field is valid as that is how I’ll be getting in touch with the winner.
  • Giveaway ends on October 31 at 10:00 pm.

Good luck and may the odds be ever in your favor!*

*What can I say – I love the Hunger Games… :p

  1. I have been twice now, and its like the adult version of being a kid in a candy store….. Every table you pass has opportunities that you want to try. It is best to pick one item to sample for the show..( be it wine, of beers, maybe scotches….. ) the samples are small, but believe me they add up to quite the “buzz” after only a few hours. Sample lots of the delicious food samples to help soak up the booze. One of my fave events, so PLEASE. Please, pick me!!!

  2. So fun. We went several years ago and had a great time! I love stuffed yorkshires, so a visit to The Druid would be the first on my list. Second is the chaat papdi from Zaika. The Gastro Bubbles from Niche sounds interesting too. So much to try!

  4. I’m looking forward to trying some different Shirazes and Merlots. My boyfriend really likes full bodied Cab Sauvs and although I enjoy them, I like a bit more fruity and smoother wines. It would be nice to sample and record some different wines.

  5. I have never been and am really hoping to score some tickets for this awesome event! I love red wine and am slowly starting to learn about it so going to this would be amazing, also a beer, scotch and food lover! Definitely want to try as many different reds as possible.
