    My best friend in the whole world is coming to visit from Maryland and we LOVE dressing up for crazy events! Please let us let our inner Frenchies out for this great party!!

  2. Sarah B June 28, 2012 at 11:26 am #

    J’aime les Francais.
    I cheated on how to spell this because I need more French in my life.
    Bastille Day would be ‘parfait’

  3. Abby June 28, 2012 at 11:26 am #

    I got a minor in European history in college and the storming of the Bastille was ALWAYS my favorite subject. It marked the beginning of revolution, and ultimately change in governmental system and everyday life of the French. Unfortunately, it also led to the execution of the ever-glamorous Marie Antoinette.

    Plus, I LOVE wine! :)

  4. Lisa Ritchie June 28, 2012 at 11:29 am #

    Who wouldn’t want to celebrate Bastille Day at Willakenzie?? Such a fantastic venue – great wine & countryside. Plus – it’s after July 5th, so the sun will be out!!

  5. Dave D June 28, 2012 at 11:38 am #

    I am very good at ‘storming’ BBQ sliders, appreciate the Oregon wine revolution and its displacement of the enological monarchy that used to exist, and am egalitarian in my enjoyment of great wines and food.

  6. heather buxton June 28, 2012 at 11:44 am #

    I’d just really love to come!

  7. Jeana Kloewer June 28, 2012 at 11:44 am #

    I would like to win because I love, love wine and of course, food! Also, I don’t live that far from Yamhill.

  8. Kelly June 28, 2012 at 11:45 am #

    Since I can’t go to France, Bastille Day; La Fête Nationale at Willakenzie Estate is the next best thing! To combine one of the best chefs in the Portland metro (Pascal Chureau) with a top Oregon winery- this is going to be an event not to miss!

  9. Jim Diamond June 28, 2012 at 11:51 am #

    I want to spend an afternoon sipping wine with Ronni, celebrating Bastille Day and all things French together!

  10. Celeste June 28, 2012 at 11:56 am #

    Bastille Day in wine country — what could be better?

    Ca c’est Bastille Day?! I want to go!

  13. Marcy June 28, 2012 at 12:19 pm #

    Wow this sounds like a lot of fun. I took French in school and have always been interested in French culture and cultural events….plus I LOVE wine. Even if I don’t win, I hope I can come out for a visit to Willakenzie!!

  14. Danny Callahan June 28, 2012 at 12:43 pm #

    My wife and I love going to local winerys…some of our favorites are Icicle Ridge Winery near Leavenworth, WA…Sweet Cheeks in Crow, Oregon…King’s Estate in Eugene, OR…St. Josphes in Canby, OR…Willamette Winery and many more…we would love to see and Taste what Willakenzie Estate Winery has to offer….

  15. sniper June 28, 2012 at 1:23 pm #

    Pick me* pick me… sounds so fun And have never been to a wine event.!

  16. Lina B. June 28, 2012 at 1:47 pm #

    This would be so much fun.
    Chef Pascal’s food is out of this world!

  17. Connie June 28, 2012 at 1:48 pm #

    My husband and I would love to escape the city for a day with good food and wine.

  18. Amy Brennan June 28, 2012 at 1:58 pm #

    July 15 is also St Swithin’s Day. Legend says if it rains on that day, it will rain for 40 more. (Or as we call it, a normal northwest summer). Whatever the day brings, I could use some wine while I whine about the weather.

  19. Allison F. June 28, 2012 at 3:54 pm #

    This coincides with my and my partner’s two-year anniversary. Our last anniversary was actually spent in Paris (and we aren’t rich, I just have a lot of student loan debt and was in school at the time). It would be amazing to follow it up with a short trip that, now that my loans are in repayment, neither of us can afford. I speak French, too, and have a Euro Studies Master. Please hope me!!!

  20. Hayley June 28, 2012 at 3:57 pm #

    This would be fantastic to win so I could give it as a gift to a fabulous couple in need of a some time together. This economy has sucked them dry

  21. Nola Borland June 28, 2012 at 4:05 pm #

    I have been wanting to visit Willakenzie Estate, and what a great way to celebrate the storming of the Bastille. Mais oui!! S’il vous plait y merci.

  22. pamela June 28, 2012 at 4:14 pm #

    32 years ago my sweet husband proposed to me on Bastille Day! Each year we celebrate our engagement on THAT day! As native Oregonians we celebrate within our beautiful state,of course with wine from Oregon’s vineyards. My maiden name, DeVore, reflects my French roots, so this would be a PERFECT day and way for us to celebrate our amore’!

  23. Jacob Jennings June 28, 2012 at 4:14 pm #

    Wahooo betsy! I’d love to play rich for a day and treat my lady right. Sign me up to win.

  24. Simone C June 28, 2012 at 4:17 pm #

    Bastille day is my favorite day!

  25. Ellie Waterhouse June 28, 2012 at 4:21 pm #

    I HEART Willakenzie like a fat kid loves cake. I sell WK’s beautiful wines on a daily basis at Portland City Grill. Nothing could be better than a day to play, drink, and eat at their gorgeous estate! Plus, I have not had the opportunity to wish Thibaud a Bon Anniversaire!

  26. Ashley S. June 28, 2012 at 4:35 pm #

    A good friend of mine and I have been wanting to do wine tasting and this would a great introduction to it. I just moved to the Portland area as well, so this would give us the a great way to see more of the area!

  27. Quiana June 28, 2012 at 4:40 pm #

    I never have made it to a vineyard before, although I do enjoy good wine! My time has come. I must be the one!! :)
    (pretty please with yummy grapes on top!!)

  28. Nick June 28, 2012 at 4:56 pm #

    I love the Polish!

  29. Johnny June 28, 2012 at 5:06 pm #

    I am organizing a Petanque shooting competition for La Provence Restaurant on Bastille Day (July 14th) so I will be sooo busy entertaining and winning ticket to be entertained would be blissful. If I don’t get picked, Bonne fête nationale a tout mes amis Français et Americains :)

  32. Lauren June 28, 2012 at 7:28 pm #

    I want to practice my French at this event, and I need wine to give me confidence boost!

  33. Natacha June 28, 2012 at 7:43 pm #

    It would be so perfect to spend the day at Willakenzie Estate Winery….I am French and have lived in Portland for the past 11 years……I will be celebrating in downtown Portland on July 14th…Vive la France! Aux armes les citoyens….!

  34. Sterno June 28, 2012 at 8:22 pm #

    This Bastille Day will be my sister Linda’s 59th birthday. It would have also been her 33rd wedding anniversary but her husband Michael died in 2001. Linda lives in Boston but loves Oregon Wine Country. These tickets just might convince her to get her derriere back out here! If not, I will use them and drink beaucoup Pierre Leon to her good health.

  35. steadycat June 28, 2012 at 11:15 pm #

    i just woke up in this box. as i type the room gets smaller. an oblong button below my deminishing space says “submit comment.” not sure what to do: if i “submit comment” my whole situation may change, but for better or worse? say i’m no longer in this box (now 2/3rds full and shrinking), who is to say i’ll be better off. or even recognizable?

  36. david g June 28, 2012 at 11:51 pm #

  38. AshleyB June 29, 2012 at 3:26 am #

  39. Mike Shewood June 29, 2012 at 6:42 am #

    You had me at pork confit sliders. Chef Pascal Chureau is teriffic. We would love to attend. This sounds great.

  40. Amy M June 29, 2012 at 7:28 am #

    J’ai parle Francais, and embrace the world’s diversity of cultures. To encourage my global approach, tickets for this event would greatly support my mission. Please.

  47. Allie June 29, 2012 at 3:46 pm #

    My best friend and her husband are currently galavanting across France. And what am I doing? Cat sitting for them. 3 cats = a lot of cleaning the litter and vacuuming let me tell ya. It would be absolutely fantastic to get a break from this feline den and experience a little snippet of the French cuisine they are currently enjoying on their vacation. Pretty please supply me with the means for a mini French vacation! :)

  48. Emily June 30, 2012 at 11:24 am #

    I would love to go to this. My summer has not yet really kicked off or had a super fun event or something to look forward too. This would totally give me something awesome to look forward too! Help a lady out, I would really love your face if you did:) Oh who am I kidding, I already kinda love your face;)

  49. Nicole June 30, 2012 at 11:54 pm #

  52. Faye July 1, 2012 at 7:16 pm #

    It’s been 25 years since my beloved partner returned home from Paris, where she worked with immigrants and refugees. She had the privilege to travel France from ville to village coming to know the many cuisines, cheeses, wines and cultures that make France the strong and rich country that it is. I would love to surprise her with tickets to this extraordinary affair. Thanks.

  53. Phuong July 1, 2012 at 9:51 pm #

    I’d like to win tickets because I love wine and it’s my favorite winery in Oregon!

  65. Brenda July 5, 2012 at 3:00 pm #

    I am recently back in the beautiful Northwest after a few years in England, and I need to have this experience to make my first summer back home perfect! Plus, A Tale of Two Cities is my favorite book, so what better way to honor Sydney Carton?

    Incidentally, Bastille Day is also our wedding anniversary. : )

  66. Josh July 5, 2012 at 4:04 pm #

    I would like to win so I can celebrate the proud French tradition of baguettes and booze!

  69. Jennifer July 5, 2012 at 4:21 pm #

    Parce que j’adore la France et les fêtes Francaises! Mais je n’ai pas l’argent pour acheter les billets :(

  73. Maya July 5, 2012 at 6:15 pm #

    I am so confused about the July 4th drawing. I just got this today, the 5th?

    At any rate, I would love to go because I had a blast at last years party in the Pearl and I think the vineyard would be a fantastic location for the event.

  75. Erik Pierson July 6, 2012 at 11:58 am #
