SWAG: Win A Double Pass To “Naramata On The River” Spring Release Party On April 24

Wouldn’t it be nice to just hop on a plane next week and take a full-on wine tour of the Naramata Bench? If you can’t swing that, you can definitely swing this: a whole bunch of Naramata Bench wineries are coming to town for a giant Spring Release and food pairing party at the River Market in New West on April 24th. That’ll save us city slickers a lot of travel time, fill our bellies, expose us to a dozens of wines, and keep us free from the stress of spitting for the sake of driving (the Market is only a zippy 25 minute Skytrain ride away). We have a double pass ($170 value) to give away to a lucky reader who jumps through the following hoops…

1) Like us on Facebook if you haven’t already.

2) Follow @scoutmagazine on Twitter and retweet the following: “I’m fixing to win two tickets to the Naramata On The River spring release shindig via @scoutmagazine bit.ly/JjDx8E

3) Name your favourite Naramata wine in the comment section of this post.

Easy peasy. The winner will be chosen at random this weekend.
