Win Tickets to Our Holiday Wine Tasting at Sonoma

You only have a few days left to buy tickets for our first-ever event at Sonoma -- a holiday wine tasting featuring 40 different kinds of beer, wine and champagne -- but one lucky reader could win a pair of tickets for free!

The first person to answer the three questions below correctly will win a pair of tickets -- a $90 value -- to the wine tasting this Saturday, December 19. For those who don't win, don't fret! It's not too late to pick up tickets from Sonoma or purchase them online.

  1. On the Eating Our Words Twitter stream, what did we recently say was old and busted, and what is the new hotness?
  2. In the recent Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo International Wine Competition, what type of wines did we judge on the media panel?
  3. Which beer did Robb Walsh name as his top year-round Texas beer? And which beer did he name as his top seasonal Texas beer?
