Giveaway: Wine Competition Swag Bag + Tickets to LA County Fair

I was recently invited to preview/taste the winning wines of the 71st Los Angeles International Wine & Spirits Competition, selected from 3,165 wines by 75 judges. Alas, I can't attend the preview because I'm out of town, but they generously offered a gift bag for me to give away to one lucky reader!

The gift bag, valued at $75, will include:

  • A variety of spirits and olive oil samples from this year's competition.
  • A pair of tickets to the L.A. County Fair
  • Vouchers to the wine-tasting seminars at this year's Fair.

Before you enter, make sure you can attend the L.A. County Fair!

You can get up to 2 entries. Here's how to enter:
1. Leave a comment with your contact information below.
2. Tweet: "Win a gift bag($75 value) from LA Int'l Wine Competition via @gourmetpigs! Enter here: "
Once you tweet, leave me a separate comment telling me you did so (easier for me to count the entries this way).

Once you win, I will contact you for your mailing address and they will mail you your gift bag.

You have until midnight on Thursday, June 17 to enter. Good luck!


Also, the LA International Wine & Spirits Competition is also holding a fundraiser, Wine & Cars Under the Stars, where for the first time the public can taste the winning wines. Taking place on June 19, tickets for this event are $100 each and benefit The Learning Centers at Fairplex, which offers educational programming for the community.

Hi! I tweeted! But alas I can't go!


Yay! I have lived in LA since 2003 and not once gone to the fair! What a lovely giveaway!

I am so lame, I don't know how to tweet. Heck, my cell phone doesn't even take pictures!

But I do know how to yearn for a wine giveaway - and I am yearning now.

Oh, too bad you can't make the tasting.

I love the Fair! For years I entered the Table Setting Competition. It was great fun.

My Fair favorites: Horse racing, pigs, wine tasting, table settings. garden center.

Yay! the LA County Fair is always so much fun! The food the food the food! Last year I was dieting so I couldn't take advantage of it- this year, I am totally indulging! :)


I haven't been to the LA County Fair for ages, I'd love to go!

Thanks so much for the chance to win :)
