“Vintner’s Cellar World Wine Adventure” read all about it below…

World Wine AdventureActually the following message did not arrive in a bottle but it certainly has something to do with receiving messages about the origins of some of the best filled bottles. This is an excerpt taken from a message written by my good friends Alan and Jana Leard owners of Vintners Cellar. This is what they had this to say:

“I wanted to tell you about the Vintner’s Cellar World Wine Adventure. Jana and I will be traveling through Europe for a month experiencing wine, food, and culture in the old world. During that time we will be hosting a live blog about our adventure. It is www.WorldWineAdventure.com and the trip begins on April 28th. We will be posting things about the wine and food that we try as well as the people we meet. Billy & Patrick on Q97 will be hosting trivia questions about the blog every morning on their show for the full month leading up to the grand prize of $1000 travel certificate from Cruise Holidays. As a part of the promotion we are selling pre-ordered cases to raise money for Relay for Life Teams. Basically, people can pre-order a case of 1 of the 3 featured wines from the areas that we will be visiting, and then 20% of the purchase price will be donated to the Relay for Life Team of their choice.”
