Santa is sick of milk and cookies — he wants you to leave him an adult beverage, and he deserves it, darn it! Which Michigan dessert wine would you set out for Santa, and why? (He's an equal opportunity dessert wine-lover … ice wine, port, sherry, you name it.)
TO ENTER: Post your answer as a comment on the OFFICIAL Day 12 post on our Facebook page by 10 p.m. EST Wednesday, Dec. 23, for your chance to earn an entry for today. (The official post will appear at 10:30 a.m. EST, and it'll be marked as such and pinned to the top of our Facebook page.)

Here's how it works...
Each morning, Dec. 12-23, at 10:30 a.m. EST, we'll post an opinion-based wine question on the website. You'll have until 10 p.m. EST that night to answer that day's question by commentng on the OFFICIAL post (which will be marked as such on our Facebook page).
You'll earn one entry into the contest for every question you respond to, so it's to your advantage to visit the site daily and send a reply!
At the end of the 12 days, we'll draw 12 people randomly to win the "virtual stockings," each of which contains items ranging from free tasting vouchers to wine accessories to logo swag to gift baskets. The winners will be posted on MichiganByTheBottle.com on Christmas Eve, so make sure to check back to see if you scored some holiday loot!
Though the prizes will be drawn randomly, the more detail and creative your answers, the happier you will make the MBTB elves! It always pains us when we draw the name of someone who gave a one-word answer when someone else practically wrote a sonnet. Don't be a Scrooge — get into the spirit!
Here's some fine print stuff: You must be at least 21 years old to enter. One entry per person, per day. Some prizes will be shipped to the winners; others require pickup at the sponsor's tasting room. We may post some of the answers we receive, either during or after the contest, along with your first/last name, on MichiganByTheBottle.com. Stockings must be claimed by winners by Friday, Jan. 1, 2016, or we will redraw for a new winner. Winners: All you have to do to claim is email us with your mailing address!
