Win two Savor Dallas tickets

Win two Savor Dallas ticketsAnd the winner is: KT, who picked 653. The winning number (screen shot below) was 797.

Win two Savor Dallas tickets for a Saturday winemaker tasting panel co-moderated by the Wine Curmudgeon, who may also mention a thing or two about the cheap wine book (and have some for sale).

Michael Green, formerly of the late and much missed Gourmet, is the other moderator. The panel is top notch: Dr. Richard Becker of Texas’ Becker Vineyards; Ralf Holdenried of Napa’s William Hill; and Sergio Cuadra of Texas’ Fall Creek.

How to win (and these are the rules for all Wine Curmudgeon contests): Pick a number between 1 and 1,000 and leave it in the comments section of this post. At about 5 p.m. central today, 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. Only one entry per person.

The seminar is at 11 a.m. March 22 at Bob’s Steak and Chop House in Dallas.

Wine Curmudgeon at Savor Dallas

I ?ll be part of Saturday ?s Modern Lifestyle Wines panel at Dallas ? foremost wine, beer, spirits and food extravaganza. You can buy tickets here.

The panel should be a lot of fun, if only because it will be moderated by Alfonso Cevola, the award-winning Italian Wine Guy. The other panelists include Dr. Richard Becker of Texas ? Becker Vineyards; Jim Collins of Frei Brothers (who kept one of my Cordon Bleu classes spellbound ? literally ? with a discussion of the best grape growing techniques); Ellen Flora of  Domaine Chandon;  Brian Maloney of Deloach and Buena Vista wineries; and Diego Pinilla of Bodegas Bilbainas.

We ?ll talk about wine. We ?ll taste wine. We ?ll probably even try and figure out what constitutes a modern lifestyle wine. I might even offer some cheap wine advice.

On Friday, meanwhile, I ?ll join my old pal Tim McNally for his wine radio show live from Savor Dallas. Tim will broadcast from noon to 3 p.m. from the Four Seasons in Las Colinas, and I ?ll be on around 1:30 p.m.

Stop by if you ?re in the area and say hello. I ?ll update you on The Cheap Wine book.
