    I really really would like to win because this event combines so many of the things I enjoy… Bluegrass, BBQ, wine, food, and fire dancers! Especially the wine.

  4. Tanika C August 21, 2012 at 3:45 pm #

    I want to win because I think fire dancers are very talented and they inspire me to try new and crazy things…and I need to stick up on wine

    My roomates brother is in town and we are looking for something fun to do. Now that Portland Monthly magazine gave away our secret swimming spot we are hopelessly searching for activities to fill the void

  14. Hannah August 21, 2012 at 11:03 pm #

    Oooooh boy! Bluegrass and BBQ? Thats what I’m talking about! I’m a broke college student looking for something cool to do for a first date. Pick me pick me :)

  15. Leonard August 22, 2012 at 7:33 am #

    Bluegrass, fire, and vineyard!

  16. Shane Young August 22, 2012 at 9:26 am #

    I love to dance to some bluegrass music and the thought of a BBQ, a fire, some fire dancers all topped off with some wine just get me a little too excited… I am also a full time Americorps volunteer and live on 100$ a month… would love to have a night out

  17. Ashley August 22, 2012 at 3:26 pm #

    I fell in love with Van Duzer when I worked at a steakhouse in Oklahoma that promoted their wines. Great taste, and the bottles are just beautiful, I always wanted a poster. This would be a great time!

  18. Steve August 22, 2012 at 10:04 pm #

    Few would appreciate the bluegrass music more than my girlfriend and myself, as we have been fans for 40 years in various places across the country and in different times. We were moved, like Steve Martin, upon Earl Scruggs recent passing to play some old favorites and lament that there are not more opportunities to enjoy live bluegrass and good country music in Oregon. A great opportunity to visit a local producer of quality wines with the cool Van Duzer breeze, and participate in the social activities! I’m ready for a game of horseshoes, where if not a ringer, close is sometimes good enough.

  19. Aaron Levinson August 23, 2012 at 11:45 am #

    I love bluegrass!!!! I love BBQ!!!!! I’ve never been to this winery. Sounds like a rad time!

  20. Tania August 23, 2012 at 2:06 pm #

    Oh I would love to be able to take my mom to this over the weekend. We both love bluegrass and went to festivals all the time when I was younger. This would be a great way to spend the evening!

  21. Nola Borland August 23, 2012 at 2:11 pm #

    This would be such a sweet blast from my chldhood past. I miss my step dad so much; playing his banjo and his mandolin was how he wooed my mom back in 1968, and they were ultimately married and he played for her until she died 6 years ago, and he died a year later of lonliness. Please send me.

  22. Anthony Forrester August 23, 2012 at 2:12 pm #

    This souls AWESOME!

  23. Tony August 23, 2012 at 2:16 pm #

    We would love this WAY more than Steve!! ^

  24. Rachel August 23, 2012 at 2:25 pm #

    I’ve had such a tricky time finding bluegrass around here! What an absolutely perfect way to spend an evening- gorgous setting, great music, excellent wines and fabulous company! <3

  25. Claire Nevins August 23, 2012 at 2:40 pm #

    Yes Please! My Husband is from Japan and he needs to hear authentic Bluegrass!

  26. SmilinWill August 23, 2012 at 2:42 pm #

    I’ve traveled around the South and listened to alot of Bluegrass but believe some of the best bands reside in the Northwest! We do so much of everything with more passion here. Send me the tickets and I will give you the best return on your investment per ticket to be had!!

  27. Carolyn August 23, 2012 at 2:47 pm #

    I adore Bluegrass! And BBQ. I would love to share those passions with my partner.

  28. maya August 23, 2012 at 3:00 pm #

    Sounds heavenly! A great party for me and my teacher friends before we return to school.

  29. April August 23, 2012 at 3:25 pm #

    What better opportunity than this to get to know my new home of Willamette Valley Oregon? Great food, wine, music and Fire dancers? You can’t beat that!

  30. Sara L August 23, 2012 at 4:20 pm #

    Sounds like it could be a good time. Something to do, anyways.

  31. Kenneth Schmidt August 23, 2012 at 5:13 pm #

    I kick ass at horseshoes!

  32. Sara Kelly August 23, 2012 at 6:53 pm #

    We have actually been interested in joining a wine club, this sounds like the perfect evening to sample some new wines and enjoy ourselves!!

  33. Dana August 23, 2012 at 7:25 pm #

  44. alice August 25, 2012 at 10:36 pm #

    My 5 year old son gets out his yuke and has begun to make up the most hilarious bluegrass songs. Only bluegrass! It’s been his favorite pretty much since he’s been able to tell us he liked it. I’d love to take him to this! Maybe they’d let him get up on stage ot perform one of his originals.
