You Won Tickets to the ZAP Zinfandel Festival!

Thanks to everyone who submitted Zinfandel themed haiku poems as entries for a chance to win tickets to the ZAP Zinfandel tasting taking place on January 26-28, 2012 here in San Francisco.

After assigning everyone a number and then using a true random number generator, I have picked the following six names "out of a hat" as winners. Each of the people below will receive two tickets to the grand tasting, courtesy of Vinography. I will send you each an e-mail, but you can pick up your tickets the day of the event at will call under the name you left in your comments (or another one you send me by e-mail). Congratulations.

Marcia J.
Donna V.
Tim B.

Additionally, I said I would award an extra pair of tickets to the Epicuria event on Thursday January 26th to my favorite of the haiku poems. My favorite was:

At fifteen percent,
never consume on first date.
Now where are my pants?

This poem happened to be submitted by Leslie, so she and a friend will be having a major Zinfandel weekend.

Thanks for playing! Now go drink some Zinfandel.
