California Dreaming – Another Wine Giveaway!

 Published on: Thursday, May 19, 2011

So, what’s better than a free bottle wine? Two free bottles of wine obviously! As a quick follow up to our Facebook Mark West Pinot Noir giveaway, we are going to give our readers and followers a chance to win two bottles of wine!

In honour of the launch of Mark West Chardonnay and the return of Avalon California Cabernet Sauvignon to the Newfoundland market, we are going to give you a chance to win a free bottle of each!

You’ve probably heard me rant on and on about food and wine pairings and how enjoyable it can be to share with friends and family. So in the spirit of what Dialog Wines is all about, we want to hear from you on this topic! We want to know what you think would be a great food pairing for our California wines, Mark West Chardonnay and/or Avalon California Cabernet. The rules are pretty flexible here. You could suggest a dish for just one wine or even a dish for both wines. You could include a recipe (strongly encouraged) and even write a brief sentence on why you think your food and wine pairing is great! You could be brief and simple (how about Popcorn and Chardonnay?) or very detailed and elaborate. We just want to hear what you have to say.

You can post your suggestion on my blog (again, strongly encouraged), post on our facebook account or just write me at with your suggestion. I’m going to judge this competition with a few other wine geeks and we’ll rank your pairings first, second and third. First place will win two bottles of wine, while second and third will have a choice between a bottle of Avalon California Cabernet or Mark West Chardonnay!

Creativity counts and I’ll announce the winners on Saturday, June 11th, so get your submissions in ASAP! We can’t wait to hear from you.

On a final note, I just thought I’d mention that Dialog Wines just received a mention in SALTSCAPES magazine. I think we’re on to something here… Check it out: As always, we appreciate your support.
