Today, to celebrate the blog’s 11th rose extravaganza, we’re giving away three free wine books:
And the winner is: Karen Rosenheimer, who selected 898; the winning number was 849 (screen shot to the left). Thanks to everyone who participated.
• The controversial Napa at Last Light, James Conway’s look at “America’s Eden on the Edge of Calamity.”
• Rex Pickett’s Vertical, the sequel to Sideways.
Complete contest rules are here. Pick a number between 1 and 1,000 and leave it in the comment section of this post. You can’t pick a number someone else has picked, and you need to leave your guess in the comments section of this post — no email entries or entries on other posts. Unless the number is in the comments section of this post, the entry won’t count.
If you get the blog via email or RSS, you need to go to this exact post on the website to enter (click the link to get there). 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 picnic set.
