And the winner is: Richard Bosch, whose number was 112; the winning number was 126 (screenshot to the right). Thanks to everyone who participated. Tomorrow's prize: a $50 gift card from Wine.com, so I expect record entries.
Today, to celebrate the blog's fifth’s anniversary, we're giving away a wine book gift pack, including the controversial “Grape-a-hol, ”Oz Clarke’s Pocket Wine Book 2013,” and “The Curious World of Wine” from the esteemed Richard Vine. A tip o’ the Curmudgeon’s fedora to the authors and publishers who supplied the books. It's the second of five daily giveaways; check out this post to see the prizes for the rest of the week.
Complete contest rules are here. To enter, pick a number between 1 and 1,000 and leave it in the comment section of this post. If you get the blog via email, you have to go to the website to enter. At about 5 p.m. central today, I'll go to random.org and generate the winning number. The person whose entry is closest to that number gets the glasses.
