Last Day of Menu For Hope Raffle

First, I gotta say: you people are amazing. we have now raised nearly FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS for such a worthy cause. It's really fantastic, and I take personal pride (and so should you) that a healthy chunk of that came from folks bidding on prizes from wine bloggers. For those of you who haven't gotten in on the action, there's still time! Your $10 donation can still get you a sizably statistically significant chance of winning some seriously good shit.


There are a few prizes that still need some love (and offer very high chances of winning to any last minute bidders!).

A tour of the world famous Hyde Vineyard plus a few bottles made from its grapes is still a screaming deal, courtesy of Tyler of Vines and Wines. (ID#WB30).

Check out a personal tour of Long Island wine country with the ultimate Long Island wine blogger, Lenn of Lenndevours (ID#WB22).

You can still get yourself a free wine related health consultation courtesy of Dr. Enoch Choi (ID#WB07).

If you live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, there's $200 of wine plus sommelier services waiting for you courtesy of The Italian Wine Guy (ID#WB09).

Why not pick up an $80 subscription to a new online wine magazine for a mere $10 raffle donation courtesy of Drink the Good Stuff. (ID#WB10)

Everyone needs to learn how to pair food and wine better. Get a head start with a signed copy of "the bible" from The Corkdork. (ID#WB12).

Other prizes that have fewer than average bids at the moment include WB13, WB15, WB08, WB11, WB29, and the newest prize WB31 (A full case of Austrian wines which Pim has posted on her site as I am on vacation and couldn't do it quickly enough!).
