TICKET GIVEAWAY {Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival}

This year I’ll be attending the Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival :) :) :) 

I’m super excited as this is something that I’ve been wanting to go to every year, except that I always end up missing it due to projects at work.

This year I was lucky enough to get an extra ticket so I figured why not do Anna’s Appetite first TICKET GIVEWAY!!!!

———————————–

I have one extra ticket for one person + their guest to attend this Saturday’s Afternoon Session.

*IMPORTANT*:  Winner and guest must both be over the age of 18 and tickets will only allow for entry into the Grand Tasting Hall.

Tickets are for Saturday, May 11th 2:00pm – 5:00pm session and allow access in the Grand Tasting Hall only.  Sampling coupon can be purchased separately at the festival.  Since I like to have fun, this is going to be a contest.  

HERE ARE THE CONTEST RULES:

1)  Take a picture of your favourite bottle of wine(s) using your Instagram or Twitter.

2)  Message me @annasappetite AND @RockyWineFest

3)  In your message make sure you hashtag #IlovewineintheRockies

Winner will be chosen on Wednesday, May 8th and I’ll private message you regarding where you get your tickets!

————————————————-

This year I hear the Festival trends are green, organic and kosher wines and tonnes of gluten-free options too!  Along with flavoured vodkas…..  (yup you heard me… ).

For those who haven’t heard of the Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival, it’s actually the largest wine and food festival in Banff which is held at the Fairmont Banff Springs hotel!  Attendants get to sample a huge array of wine, scotch, beer, vodkas… (you know, the good stuff) and have it paired with tasty food samples brought to you by local restaurants.  There will also be wine and beverage experts there to help guide you about your food and beverage pairings as you drink and eat your way from booth to booth.   The Grand Tasting Hall will feature the best cuisine that Banff has to offer and will include delicious treats from places such as The Bison Restaurant & Terrance, Rimrock Resort, Bear Hill Brewing Company, and a new restaurant making it’s festival debut Tooloulou… just to name a few.  

If you haven’t gotten any plans for your Mother’s Day weekend (yet)  then this is a good time to maybe plan a little trip to the Rockies and show your mom a great time at this Festival.

Tickets for purchase are available online at rockymountainwine.com.  Sampling coupons are required for sampling and can only be purchased onsite.
