Day 1 of the contest is closed as of 11:59 p.m. Dec. 12.
Today marks Day 1 in our 12 Days of Christmas contest, sponsored by the Leelanau Peninsula Vintners Association and the Michigan Grape & Wine Industry Council! The goal is to rack up as many points as possible Dec. 12-23 for your chance to win a fabulous Michigan wine-related prize pack. Click through for the rules and what's at stake...
What is the ONE winery/vineyard operation located within the Fennville AVA (American Vititcultural Area) on the west side of Michigan?
Email your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59 p.m. Monday, Dec. 12, for your chance to earn a point for Day 1. Please use the subject line "12 Days of Christmas: Day 1" and be sure to include your first and last names and your city of residence.
The prizes up for grabs are...
- From the LPVA: A pair of tickets to Taste the Passion event on the Leelanau Peninsula in February and a pair of tickets to the 2012 Traverse City Wine & Art Festival in June.
- A wine tote bag with a Michigan corkscrew, glasses and a "Wine Country" magazine inside; a copy of "The History of Michigan Wines" by Lorri Hathaway and Sharon Kegerreis; canvas "Local Food/Local Flavors" shopping bags; and a complimentary Vintage Michigan membership, which entitles you to discounts at participating wineries.
- From us: A Michigan By The Bottle "I Support the State with Every Sip" T-shirt.
Here's how it works...
Each morning Dec. 12-23, we'll post either a Michigan wine trivia question (no worries, it won't be rocket science; all-knowing Google should be enough to help find the answers if you don't already know them) or an opinion-based question (i.e., no right or wrong answer).
You'll have until 11:59 p.m. that night to answer that day's question by emailing in the response to us, along with your first/last name and city of residence. You'll earn one point for every trivia question you answer correctly, and one point just for participating on every opinion-based question you weigh in on. (Therefore, it's to your advantage to visit the site daily and guess on trivia questions, even if you're not sure!)
At the end of the 12 days, we'll tally up the points. The player with the most points will win the prize pack; if there's a tie, we'll rely on our trusty standby, the random number generator, to select from the field of contenders. The winner will be announced on Christmas Eve.
Please keep in mind that we may post some of the opinion-based answers we receive, either during or after the contest, along with your first/last name, on MichiganByTheBottle.com.
You must be at least 21 years old to enter this contest; by submitting entries, you're acknowledging that you fit the age requirements.
