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

April 18, 2012.

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.

See which wineries and restaurants are participating after the leap…
