Tinhorn Creek Vineyards presents Wine Tasting with a Social Twist May 26th at the CBC Audience Lounge.

Sea Cider

The event will consist of a staggered wine tasting — think timed speed-dating but with wines. Each participant will have five minutes at each tasting station to swirl, sip, and sample. When the bell sounds, they move along.

The catch is that the labels will be covered, only to be revealed at the end of the circuit by winemaker Sandra Oldfield. She will also go through the nuances of each varietal once everyone has completed their tastings. If you play along and make some correct guesses while you go through the blind tastings, you could also win some prizes, courtesy of Tinhorn Creek.

Canapés will be provided and everyone will leave with a souvenir Riedel wine glass. Tickets are available online for $20 each and I have two pairs to give away.

Here’s how to enter to win a pair of tickets for the wine tasting:

  • Share this post on Facebook & leave a comment to confirm (1 entry)
  • Leave a comment on this post (1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
  • Win a pair of tickets to an @TinhornCreek Wine Tasting with a Social Twist from @Miss604

    The event takes place from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at the CBC Audience Lounge (CBC Broadcast Centre 700 Hamilton Street).

    Update I have just drawn Marilou as the winner, as well as Mariska. Congratulations and have fun at the tasting!

    Fine print: Ticket value is $20 so each prize is worth $40. Two winners (who may each bring a guest) will be draw Thursday May 20th at 9:00am.
