Boston Wine Expo, February 15 & 16 2014- A Giveaway and a Discount Code

Exciting news- it is once again time for the Boston Wine Expo! 

Held on February 15th and 16th at the Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center, this is the event to attend!  Entrance to the event itself grants each attendee a tasting glass and access to samples from over 300 producers, culinary samples from some of the city's best chefs and the chance to watch complimentary cooking demonstrations.  But then...then there are the seminars!  Whether you want to drill into the world of Chianti, or you want to learn more about what the world of Champagne and sparkling wines really is all about- there are seminars for you.  I've been perusing the list of seminars for a couple of weeks now and there are so many that I'd love to check out it's getting hard to choose!

I mean how about learning the ins and outs to pairing wine with oysters from Island Creek Oyster Bar's GM Tom Schlesinger-Guidelli?  Or what about diving into the little known, but truly fantastic vineyards of the Finger Lakes region?  Of course then there's the wine and cheese matching seminar which I can't imagine being more delicious.  

The truly interesting part of the Expo however is that it's not all wine.  Seminars also concentrate on teaching the basics of Scotch or Rum.  Saturday's session even ends with a battle of the mixologists.  

The Boston Wine Expo offers something for everyone, and I'm offering you the chance to attend!  I'm giving away a pair of tickets to the Sunday Grand Tasting here on A Boston Food Diary!  To enter please leave a comment on this post telling me which piece of the Expo you're most excited about, and your contact information, by 5:00 pm EST on Monday, January 27, 2014.  Please be over the age of 21.

Additionally, the team at the Boston Wine Expo has given me a discount code to offer to you all.  Please purchase tickets here and enter code "Social" (without the quotes) and you will receive a 10% discount to tickets for either Saturday or Sunday's sessions.  

I'll be attending on Sunday- I hope to see you guys there!

I'm 24 and still trying to learn about wine. I took a short seminar on port wines at my local liquor store and I loved getting to understand the craft and the process of making a special wine! I would love to attend the expo and discover all the different types and styles of wine that I have yet to learn about!

I love trying new Spanish wines! I love Spain and fell in love with their wine during my study abroad and recent trips back. In Boston it's very rare to find Spanish wines on wine lists and liquor stores often have a small selection. I love trying new and different Spanish wines at the expo that we are not exposed to normally.

Food & wine pairing sounds awesome. I'm definitely over 21 and would love to attend.

I've had fun at Second Glass in Boston but I've never attended the wine expo, so that would be fun!

I really like meeting the different people serving the wine. They all have such interesting information to share about their wine.

I'd love to learn how to properly pair wine and cheese - I bet the right combination takes it to a level I've never properly experienced!

I love Area Four, so it would be great to watch Michael Leviton's cooking demo. Of course, trying a bunch of new wines wouldn't be bad either!

The wine expo would definitely give me the chance to try a bunch of different pinot noirs that I've always been too hesitant to buy a whole bottle of! Really would love to go.
