  2. soco April 18, 2012 at 11:45 am #

    Hi…I didn’t win on Monday but maybe today?? please pick me, I would love to attend this event because I love wine and can’t afford an event like this if it isn’t a gift.

  3. Kayte CookWatts April 18, 2012 at 11:49 am #

    Any food event excites me-but since I am completely unfamiliar with the local wine scene this would be a blast!

  4. Joe M. April 18, 2012 at 11:54 am #

    I want to learn more about the wine, thanks!

  5. Bridget April 18, 2012 at 12:13 pm #

    I love local wine and food, but can’t afford tickets to events like this.

  6. asha lepps April 18, 2012 at 12:24 pm #

    Me and my husband would love to go!

  7. Amy Brennan April 18, 2012 at 12:31 pm #

    Ever since moving to Oregon, I always want to try new places to eat. What a great opportunity to have so many options to try in one place at the same time.

  8. B.A. F April 18, 2012 at 12:48 pm #

    I would love tickets to this. I spent my more than what I typically budget for entertainment last weekend while taking advantage of the Dundee Hills Passport. By that I mean I’ll be eating PB&J for the next two weeks but not even imbibing in my recent purchases as they all have to age.

    I love food and after PB&J for two weeks, I’d really love “real” food.

    Please pick me and rescue me from my self caused food hell. I really had wanted to go to this event, but alas my weakness in good wine and food in wine country has now caused a change in plans.

  9. Nicole April 18, 2012 at 1:15 pm #

    I would love the opportunity to try some local Washington wines while enjoying delicious Portland cuisine.

  10. Da April 18, 2012 at 2:28 pm #

  11. Nicole April 18, 2012 at 3:17 pm #

    My husband has been out of town for 3 weeks and we would love to have a date night! Plus, SuLei Cellars is going to be at this event and we would love to support them by buying some of their luscious wine (we don’t plan a trip to Walla Wallavanytime soon, so this would be a great opportunity to do that)!

  12. Celery April 18, 2012 at 7:24 pm #

    The 23rd is my birthday and I LOVE food! This would be the best gift and relieve my husband from having to plan the perfect night!

  16. Lora Danielson April 19, 2012 at 10:58 am #

    We have never been to a wine pairing before and ADORE wine. It would be lovely to get into the depths of Washington’s fine wines on my boyfriends 33rd birthday!! Our appreciation of these tickets would be outstanding.

  17. Becka Cook April 19, 2012 at 11:01 am #

    This is the sort of event I would *truly* enjoy attending but can no longer afford. I know that doesn’t make me unique, but it will definitely make me appreciative!

  28. George April 19, 2012 at 5:50 pm #

    Wife needs wine, need I say more?

  29. Mike Cizzle April 19, 2012 at 5:53 pm #

    I love great wine, cheese and fruit from the big Dub up above. It would be great to take a break from the political season and work stress to munch on some Washington tastiness courtesy of PDX Pipeline. Yes, please! :)

  30. Jessie April 19, 2012 at 6:02 pm #

    Yes please! This is the perfect way to handle Monday!

  31. Johnny April 19, 2012 at 6:05 pm #

    As a native from France this would be a great introduction to WA wine terroires!

  32. Hania April 19, 2012 at 6:17 pm #

    My sweetheart and I just moved here from cape cod. Would love to go to meet new people and taste the local fruit of the vine. Thanks for your consideration.

  33. valorie bradley April 19, 2012 at 6:25 pm #

    Recently moved here and I’m torn, should I go to cardio kick boxing that night or check out this incredible wine event. We came from the mid west and are trying to get into the “Portland scene”. Maybe you can help us get more acquainted with this region’s wines by making the decision for me and giving us tickets!

  34. Hilary Andriesian April 19, 2012 at 6:37 pm #

    I can’t think of a better way to spend a Monday evening, just three days before my 51st birthday. So many things to toast to: the anniversary of my birth, one month into empty nesthood, and way too long since my last glass of excellent Washington wine. I would love to Taste Washington!@PureSpace (without even crossing state lines!)

  35. Dino April 19, 2012 at 7:08 pm #

    Quite simply…it would be a very special celebration for a specta

  36. Ian April 19, 2012 at 7:08 pm #

    I am looking forward to a fun, informative and delicious evening if I win!

  37. Dino April 19, 2012 at 7:09 pm #


    …spectacular 29 years. Thanks.

  38. Yuri April 19, 2012 at 7:09 pm #

    I know the difference between red and white wine, but that’s about it. This would be a great learning opportunity!

  39. daVe April 19, 2012 at 7:29 pm #

    ಠ_ಠ …woah, how i’d love to get better versed in the art of pairing wines and such delicious fare as this!

  40. becky brown April 19, 2012 at 7:45 pm #

  41. Danielle April 19, 2012 at 8:21 pm #

    I’d have to find a friend to go with me… everyone I know is busy that day, which means I would make a new friend! (& that is priceless!)

  42. Mike Hamilton April 19, 2012 at 8:37 pm #

    I love wine! Please pick me,

  43. megan whelan April 19, 2012 at 8:56 pm #

    I would love to go because I love wine! Washington wine never gets featured so I think this event would be awesome.

  44. Taylor April 19, 2012 at 9:06 pm #

    I love Washington wine! But unfortunately I haven’t tried very much if it. Maybe this is my chance?

  46. Teresa April 19, 2012 at 9:37 pm #

  49. steadycat April 19, 2012 at 10:29 pm #

    Why lie, I need a beer. Er, wine.

  50. Kelly G April 19, 2012 at 10:34 pm #

    My girl friend likes to wine and dine, and I like anything wet, red or white as long as it isn’t vinegar, it’s alright, so together we would thoroughly enjoy two tickets to the event. We both need to expand our wine tasting experiences and this looks to be the perfect venue.

  51. jessica April 20, 2012 at 12:31 am #

    I’m not very familiar with Washington’s wine scene, and would live to discover it more. And I love food pairings!!! This sounds awesome!

  52. April April 20, 2012 at 12:32 am #

    Haven’t tried that much Washington wine, would love to partake in the tasting.

  53. Tara April 20, 2012 at 3:03 am #

  62. Amiee April 20, 2012 at 7:25 pm #

    I would love to experience local wines. We have not lived here for quite a year yet and are just trying to explore everything about the PNW!!

  63. ben April 20, 2012 at 11:42 pm #

    This sounds awesome. These are the best kinds of festivals.

  64. Jamie Nash-Sedda April 21, 2012 at 1:33 am #

    I need something to do….

  65. Kristy Lewis April 21, 2012 at 11:25 am #

    I am from CA and would love to try some NW wines and who doesn’t like good food? Did I see cheese on the menu? I personally think cheese (and chocolate) should be their own food group and everyone should have at least 2 servings a day :)

  66. Raj April 23, 2012 at 12:23 pm #

    I just moved here from Europe- am curious how wines here compare to there…gonna be another ‘bottle shock :)?’

  67. Benjamin May 8, 2012 at 2:32 pm #

    I’m salivating just thinking about it. Tis the season for events like this.
