On Sunday, you could be one of the first oenophiles to swirl and sip Balistreri Vineyards' new wine releases at the winery's eighth annual Balistreri Harvest Party, a tribute to the fruit of the vine that benefits CASA of Adams and Broomfield counties.
Tickets are $55 in advance, and $60 at the door, but we're giving away complimentary tickets to three lucky Cafe Society readers. The tickets, should you win them, will grant you and one guest admission.
Question is, how do you emerge victorious?
Leave a comment telling us -- in five words or less -- why you deserve to drink all day long. Don't forget to leave your first name and, preferably the initial of your last name, along with a valid e-mail address (we won't share it with anyone), so we can contact you if you're one of the winners.
The soiree, which uncorks at noon, and attracts nearly 1,000 grape gurus each year, also features a feedbag of awesome food, including wood-fired pizzas, pig roasts and antipasti, plus live music and a kid's grape-stomping contest, the juice from which will eventually be turned into bottles of Little Feet merlot and sold for pre-sale at Sunday's bash.
Side note: If your comment goes something like, "I love to drink wine," consider yourself worthy of swill. We're looking for witty, pithy comments.
The winners will be announced at 5 p.m. today.
Ready, set, go!
