The blog celebrates its fourth anniversary starting on Monday, which means prizes for the people who have helped to make it one of the best read wine blogs on the Internet. It's the Wine Curmudgeon's way of saying thank you.
I'll give away a copy of George Taber's new book (hopefully autographed), "A Toast to Bargain Wines"; a bottle of Tormaresca Neprica, the wine that has attracted the most visitors over the past four years; two tickets to DrinkLocalWine's fourth annual conference, DLW 2012 in Denver; an EasyLift corkscrew set; and a copy of the new Jacques Pepin cookbook, Essential Pepin (because he's not only a great chef, but a fan of cheap wine).
Each morning starting Monday, in addition to the regular post, there will be a prize post. To win the prize, pick a number between 1 and 1,000 and leave it in the comment section of the post. At about 5 p.m. central each day, I'll go to random.org and generate the winning number. The person whose number is closest to the random number wins the prize -- and no, you can't pick a number someone else has picked. Everyone 21 and older is eligible.
