Wine on Our Minds


Published:

It may be morning, but we've got wine on the brain—figuratively, of course! (Plus beer, cheese, fruit, and all sorts of delicious bites from local restaurants and purveyors.)

Our annual Food & Wine Experience is just four days away...200 hundred exhibitors will soon be pouring into Target Field (the luxury suites inside, not the field!) to prep their spaces for enthusiasts coming by from 1-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday for as many samples as they can stomach.

If you've yet to purchase your tickets, there's still some available: Visit foodwineshow.com. Though we're biased, we're also confident you'll get your money's worth—and head home satiated, with restaurant ideas to frequent, wine and beer favorites to find at your local liqour store, and maybe a big prize.

So in the spirit of spirits and all things tasty, we have a little giveaway today: a Food & Wine Lover's Puzzle & Quiz Book and The Art of Cooking Morels. Both books are fun for the culinary-inclined.

To enter to win, just leave a comment below with one of the 350 fine wines being served—or 75 beers, if that's more your style. We hope to see you there!

Entries accepted until March 1, 10 a.m. Winner will be contacted via email.
