WINNER UPDATE: Win two seats to Mateo's rosé wine dinner

Announcement! We have a winner of our Mateo rosé wine dinner. We asked Cafe Society readers to guess how many glasses of rosé Mateo poured in May, 2012. The correct answer is 144 glasses. The person who came the closest to that number without going over, is Rex_Grant, who guessed 140. Congrats, Rex! We'll send you an e-mail with details as to how you can claim your prize.

Despite Old Man Winter and the wicked wrath of Mother Nature, we're already three weeks into spring -- and that means it's time to uncork our favorite wine: rosé. Bright, flirtatious and ideal for pairing with food, rosés are wines for all seasons, but there's something about spring -- budding botanicals, romance and lighter menus -- that makes us want to drink rosé and nothing else.

And Mateo seems to share our passion, because the Boulder restaurant, which features ooh-la-la French cuisine, is hosting a rosé wine dinner on Tuesday, April 30, and we're giving one Cafe Society reader and a guest the chance to indulge in that dinner for free.

The person who comes the closest to the correct answer without going over, will get the tickets. To enter our contest, please leave your name and a valid e-mail address (the absence of an e-mail address automatically disqualifies you) and your guess in the comments section below. We'll announce the winner this Friday, before 6 p.m.
