Your Passport to Northwest Wines

Last Friday night (4/10/2015) brought the Grand Tasting of Columbia Gorge wines to Portland. If your were lucky enough to attend the tasting, you got just a glimpse of what that region has to offer. If you didn't make it, rest assured that the Gorge is just a short drive away and you can still get to know all those wines and more.

And I'm going to make that even easier for you. 

I'm giving away TWO FREE PASSPORTS to one lucky person so they can sip their way through the Northwest wine country and discover the beauty of the region. With over 170 tasting rooms opening their doors to you, you can meander through Oregon, Washington, Idaho and British Columbia to really get to the heart of Northwest Wine Country experience.

These passports are valued at over $1,500 each, but with one simple entry, they can be yours for free.

Your entry is simply to write a haiku in the comments section (read about haiku here). Write about wine, the area, or whatever inspires you about this contest. I'll select one person to receive the two passports and then you can begin planning your adventure (passports are valid through January 31, 2016, but this contest ends April 31st, 2015).
