Swirl Wine Gift Certificate Giveaway!!

Do you like wine, beer and/or liquor?  Do you like winning things?  Well then get excited friends because I have an AWESOME giveaway for you!  Swirl Wine is offering one lucky TofB reader a $20 Gift Certificate to their store in Timonium!!!!

I've written about Swirl a number of times, so this is very exciting for me!  What I've always loved about Swirl, is the enthusiasm the owners (husband and wife team, Austin and James) have for teaching others about wine.  They offer wine classes, as I mention below, and they also hold wine tastings on Friday evenings. 

Here are their two upcoming classes ($20 each).  I've taken Swirl 101 before with a friend of mine and not only did we learn a lot, but we had a blast!
  • Swirl 101: The Basics, Saturday, February 26th  1pm-2pm
    • Geared toward the new wine enthusiast. Popular styles, regions, and terminology will be explored.   
  • Swirl 201: The Nitty Gritty, Saturday, March 12th  1-2pm
    • Each "Nitty Gritty" class will be centered around an in-depth investigation of a particular region, varietal, or style. The dynamic region of Spain will be on the agenda for this class.
 So drop by Swirl, and enter my giveaway!  You can enter ONCE PER DAY!

Rodenbach Grand Cru- oops that is a beer, but many people say its characteristics are like wine. We drink a bunch of Riesling at home.

I don't know much about wine, but I like red.

Mel said...

I like sweet wines! I recently tried Cresta Azul for the first time and loved it ;)

you have my contact info!

@Gerry LOL.

My current favorite is Boordy's Landmark Reserve (although I may have a new fav after tonight!)... "A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot grapes with rich aromas of chocolate, plum and briar fruit. The full bodied flavor is complemented by two years of French oak aging. Enjoy with ripe cheses, grilled meats and roasts." Delicious!!

Sasha said...

One of my favorites is the Nomade Malbec (Argentina, Mendoza) - I first chose it to go with a gnocchi dish that I was making. It is truly a delicious wine for a great value!

KeeKat said...

Usually a big fan of whites, preferably Reislings, but lately have been venturing into the world of reds. My cheap go to is the Barefoot semi sweet red, yum

Mel said...

Just entering again :)

Another delicious wine is German Riesling Kabinett. I prefer the Kabinett designation because it usually indicates a Riesling that is a bit on the dry side. I don't like sweet wine so, when I'm in the mood for a good Riesling, this is the perfect choice!

TerpGal85 said...

I like a good riesling as well, and a pinot grigio. Moscatos are a little TOO sweet for me...might as well drink nectar! eschurma@gmail.com

Mel said...

Entering again. Today I am in the mood for tinto de verano - to celebrate the summer like temperatures!

AK said...

I loved the port we had at the first wine club!

Vinedo de los Vientos "Alcyone", Atlantida, Uruguay

AK said...

Oh Gosh - After winery hopping all through northern Virginia this past weekend I have many new favorites! All of the wines from Naked Mountain Winery were terrific. I particularly liked the Raptor Red!

Mel said...

Just entering again :)

This weekend I had some Trader Joe's "two buck chuck" (actually $3 in DC) chardonnay - and I have to say it wasn't bad.

Sasha said...

Some of the best Maryland wines come from Black Ankle Vineyards in Mount Airy. I first visited Black Ankle in 2009 and had the pleasure of meeting and being led on a tour by Ed Boyce who, along with his wife Sarah, own Black Ankle. I was very impressed with the quality and level of detail that the couple put into every aspect of their winery and of the winemaking process. My favorite of their reds continues to be their Crumbling Rock and of the whites, it is the Gruner Veltliner.

Mel said...

Entering again. No wine was consumed since we last spoke :)

What a fun giveaway!

Jewel said...

I'm not a big wine-o but I like white!

If you're in the mood for something fruity - you can't go wrong with Fiore's High Heel Slipper! (Plus the bottle is super cute!)

Mel said...

I'm not sure how many wine related things I can say! I saw a section of German wines at Trader Joe's this week and got excited!

Matthew said...

ooh. forgot to enter every day. darn!

I'll still take my Joseph Phelps Cab. 06

Scott Tavegia said...

My favorite is by Three Thieves "The Show" Malbec from Chile or Joel Gott Reserve 815

World of Eats said...

Because they sell Soju, and Soju is tasty.

Jamey said...

20 year Tawny is the best thing sold in a bottle.

Kimberly said...

I love most any Cab Sav's, and Pinot Noir's, and I love Swirl!!

Mel said...

I'll be laying off the wine tonight in preparation for a long run tomorrow :)

Sasha said...

There are many amazing Riojas to be found. I'm sort of hoping that they remain in relative obscurity so that I can continue to find some great bottles and even greater prices!
