Boston Wine Expo 2014 (and a Giveaway!)

I love wine.

I’m sure that goes without saying considering the title of this blog. And I’m really excited that this year I get the chance to go to the Boston Wine Expo at the Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center in February! The opportunity to try over 300 wines in the span of 4 hours, plus tasty bites and live cooking demos? Sign me up!


There are also educational seminars that you can attend to learn more about whatever topic tickles your tastebuds. I’m already eyeing the “Cheese and Wine Matching Seminar” where you get to try wines expertly paired with different cheeses. There’s also location-based seminars for those who are interested in learning about wines specific to places like Napa Valley or Portugal. I think deciding on which seminars to go to would be one of the hardest decisions of the day!

And guess what? The Boston Wine Expo wants you there too! I have two tickets to give to a lucky reader for the Expo’s Grand Tasting on Sunday, February 16th! Your tickets will include access to the main event, a souvenir glass with which you can try any of the 300(+) wines that will be available for sampling, complimentary food samples from a variety of culinary producers, and live cooking demonstrations.  I don’t know about you, but I’m super excited.

To enter, simply leave a comment below telling me what your favorite wine is and why you’d like to to the Boston Wine Expo! (Don’t forget to leave your name and email address so I can contact you if you win!)

For an extra entry, follow me on Twitter @ChocoAndWine and leave me a comment telling me you did!

The entry period will run from today, January 15th through Thursday, January 30th. I will pick a winner at random and announce it here!

Congratulations to Lauren Boucher for winning 2 tickets to the Sunday Grand Tasting at the Boston Wine Expo!

  1. You know that I absolutely love Pinot Grigio, and I would love to attend this expo since my boss is in the wine making industry! It would get me brownie points to have attended 😉

  2. Tempranillo. I’d love to go so I can learn more about wine. I like to drink it but it’d be nice to know why one tastes better to me then another.

  3. I do NOT discriminate when it comes to wine. For a chardonnay I love the gold label Mer Soleil, and I usually drink Malbec from the Australia region. yummy

  4. I WANNA GOOOOOOO!! I love me some sauvignon blanc. And I already follow you on twitter, so does that count as an extra?! It should. Kthanksloveyoubye.

  5. I enjoy Cabernet Sauvignon – I’d like to go to the Boston Wine Expo with my girlfriend so we can find a wine we both can enjoy together.

  6. First off, that expo would be the PERFECT birthday celebration for me. My favorites though, because I can’t just have one, would be a sparkling moscato (haven’t met a brand I didn’t like…yet) or a fruit infused Riesling. Light, crisp- right up my alley! And I already follow you on twitter!

  7. My favorite wine is Rose. Specifically Sofia Rose it reminds me of summer every time I drink it so refreshing and filled with sunshine. And the flavors…. divine. 🙂

  8. My favorite wine is a pinot noir by Parducci. I have always wanted to go to the Boston Wine Expo, but could never really afford it. This is a great giveaway! Thank you so much!

  9. This event looks like the perfect pairing of everything I love! I enjoy Malbec from Argentina and would love to be part of this event! Thank you!

  10. Cremant is the very best wine from France. I would love to learn more about wine and this sounds like the place to do just that. Would love the chance to join other people like me who enjoy learning more about wine and food.

  11. My Favorite wine is Cigar Box Malbec. It’s a very smooth texture, which I find essential for Malbecs,a good nose that smells of rich red grapes and plum with a hint of sweetness that hits your tongue. Definitely one of those wines that you can have g glass of everyday and not get sick of, and won’t great the bank… Now that’s my type of wine! I’d love to go to the wine expo to check out some of the more exotic wines that I might not otherwise purchase and brush up on my pairing skills. Ryan at rsalinger .com @RySalMA

  12. Well! 🙂 To be honest with you I do not have a favorite type of wine but I am very interested in being able to say that I do. For this reason I would LOVE to go to this event. It has greatly sparked my interest! I’m 23 and all I do is work, I need things to do with my life (positive things) and this sounds very intriguing. I really truly would love those tickets and would love the opportunity to learn and taste and taste and taste and then finally know what my favorite type of wine is!

    Really hope you will see my comment, I am so excited just thinking about the fact I could win!

    Hope to hear back! Thank you for the opportunity,
    – Sam 🙂

    I followed you from both of my twitter accounts! ( @xsamrlx17 and @samrl17 )

    Thank You for the chance!

    Sam 🙂

  14. I recently just turned 21 and the only wine I have tried is Arbor mist! I would love to won so I can experience the different wines that are out there and enjoy a fun day with one of my friends 🙂
