Hey Wine Blogger You Want Free Wine?
Do you want a chance win a mixed ½ case of great Washington Wine?
Merlot is making a comeback. After getting pushed around by Miles from Sideways, Merlot is taking a stand and regaining its rightful place of respect. Washington makes some damn fine Merlot and you should be drinking it! Since you’re probably on your way to Walla Walla for WBC10, consider this an opportunity to do some pre-awareness reconnaissance investigation. In the name of science and brotherhood of man, you’ll want to participate! Plus, did I mention the free wine?
March is Washington Wine month. What better way to celebrate the Rocky Mountains, skiing, beautiful pristine lakes, the birthplace of Starbucks, The Mariners, the home of Microsoft, Father’s Day, Gonzaga Bulldogs, Apolo Ohno, Jimi Hendrix and Grunge than to drink Washington Wine. Plus, there’s free wine!
Here is how it works:
- Register for #WAMerlot http://wamerlot.eventbrite.com/
- Find yourself some #WAMerlot (Wine Library & Wild Walla Walla Wine Woman have some great deals)
- Blog (see the details below)
- Promote and Tweet #WAMerlot: Join us on March 25 and tweet as the world celebrates Washington Merlot
Sounds simple enough.
We’d love your support. One of my favorite aspects of Social Media has been the collaboration and support that the community offers. So, if you’re in, just make sure your blog talks about Washington Wine (in general), mentions #WAMerlot (with the link to the event page), and talks about what you’re looking forward to about coming to the Wine Bloggers Conference in June. You’re invited to help us celebrate Washington! One blogger will be chosen to receive a mixed 1/2 case of Washington Wine as a thank you from the great state of Washington. Thanks for helping us spread the word. I look forward to reading and tweeting your posts.
*To emphasize, this is a thank you for your help in promoting Washington.
If you and your readers need help getting their hands on Washington Merlot, point them to these great supporters of #WAMerlot:

Better late than never (or after the fact), I posted and promoted.
I’ve also recruited my mother-in-law, who lives in the Chicago suburbs, to join #WAMerlot.
Looking forward to Thursday.
Awesome, Chris! Thanks for your support. Currently, aside from the 9 main sponsors of the event, 6 other wine bloggers have helped promote! We’ll determine a winner randomly after the event is over.
And the birthplace of the Wine Harlots!
