      Would love to treat my favorite bestie to an excellent event!! wine, cooking and truffles…. does it get any better!!??

  2. Mer January 26, 2018 at 10:21 am #

    I love chocolate. I love wine. I love my partner. (may or may not be in order of preference). The Newberg truffle marketplace falls on our five year anniversary, me and my partner’s anniversary (chocolate, wine and I we go way further back). Newberg Fresh Truffle Marketplace would be the BEST celebration of our love, me, chocolate and wine, and my partner too I guess… Cheers, to many more years.

  3. Jill January 26, 2018 at 10:58 am #

    I’d love to learn more about truffles.

  4. Brandon Garrabrants January 26, 2018 at 11:51 am #

    Truffles, wine tastings, beer and spirits, dog demos? On Valentine’s weekend? A week shy of my 2 year anniversary with my partner? Sounds like actual heaven on earth. Would be a great way to kick off our anniversary. Hoping for the best

  5. Teresa January 26, 2018 at 3:28 pm #

    Sounds like a fun event!

    Excuse me for being a wild boar, but I have a fever and the only prescription is native Oregon Truffles, washed down with Oregon made wine. Oink oink, gobble gobble, swallow swallow.

  22. Monica January 30, 2018 at 12:26 pm #

    I’m sorry, what? I read this and thought “Willamette Valley wine? Oregon truffles? Local chocolate? Could this trifecta get any better? AND THEN I SAW THE TRIFECTA OF LETTERS: D-O-G. I had no ideas that Truffle Dogs were a thing, but now that I know, I’ve got to see this demo. While I drink wine. And eat truffles. And chocolate.

  23. Josh Oppenheim January 30, 2018 at 12:32 pm #

    I’d love to win this :)

  24. Rich Allen January 30, 2018 at 12:40 pm #

  35. Athena Thomas January 30, 2018 at 1:59 pm #

    I find it enjoyable to learn via engaging demonstrations and brief lectures; this, coupled with the varied tastings and other activities, would be why I would find attending this event to be especially fun.

  36. Marco January 30, 2018 at 3:02 pm #

    …because it’s never too early for tasty, spore-bearing fungus. Wine goes a long way on an event like this!

  37. Mark January 30, 2018 at 3:04 pm #

  52. Tiffany N January 31, 2018 at 5:16 pm #

    I was first introduced to truffles in France and had no idea Oregon had a vibrant local community of vendors and producers. It would be so cool to learn more and get to try out some amazing food and wine with the hubs!

  53. Michael Moreno February 1, 2018 at 9:21 am #

    In my last life I was a truffle pig

  54. Randy George February 1, 2018 at 2:15 pm #

  57. Debra Ann February 1, 2018 at 4:10 pm #

    My 11yr. old grandaughter listed Truffles as her favorite food on her school questionairre. And she wasnt talking the chocolate kind! She loves Paris and Truffles…if only I could imagine a little of that euphoria! PLEASE!

  58. Jenny February 1, 2018 at 4:36 pm #

    Truffles and doggies?! Yes please!

  64. Poppy Fields February 1, 2018 at 6:49 pm #

    I find it absolutely hilarious that about 50% of the commentators to this point seem to think this truffle shindig is about chocolate!

    • Dave February 2, 2018 at 7:41 am #

      The 50% of folks you’re laughing at are responding to the giveaway prompt to comment for two to the Chocolate + Pinot tasting which yes, also includes entrance to the Oregon Truffle Marketplace.

      As for my commentary, how can anyone be expected to choose between chocolate and truffles?! Individually superb, absolute perfection when paired, and downright euphoric should you add an Oregon Pinot wine.

  65. Meghan February 1, 2018 at 7:01 pm #

    I love truffle!

  66. Laura February 1, 2018 at 8:46 pm #

    Truffles AND dogs? Sign me up!

  67. Qing February 2, 2018 at 9:25 am #

    I love all these things!!! But mostly dogs.

  68. Faith W February 2, 2018 at 5:36 pm #

    I’d love to win because I’ve never eaten a truffle…except for the chocolate kind… :)

  73. Gregory Cook February 6, 2018 at 12:23 pm #

    February is a month of heartfelt moments and memories. Wine and chocolate help to create both of those. Whether you’re a single guy or partnered, married or just wanting to take someone special to an event — this is one of the top choices I think to share!

    I want to write a clever response that evokes your attention and makes you instantly choose me as a deserving recipient of these tickets….but all I can say is, I love wine, I love Oregon wine especially, and I love chocolate and truffles and all the things. I especially love my husband and would love to spoil him with this exciting venture out to Newberg, and I love not spending money but still getting to do awesome things! Pick me!

    Truffles are so sensual!

  88. Lisa B February 6, 2018 at 5:04 pm #

    That happens to be my birthday, and it also just so happens that truffles, wine, chocolate and cats are my favorite things in the world, so getting three on my birthday would be pretty fanatastic. If I win, I will happily work my way over to the organizer to inform them that the truffle festival would be much more complete if they include cats next year.

  89. Nora Streiffer February 6, 2018 at 5:22 pm #

    Love dark chocolate, Red Wine, heavenly. Oh la la.
    Truffle oil on anything and everything is delightful. Love it on popcorn with Parmesan cheese.

  90. Chandra G February 7, 2018 at 8:50 am #

  91. Zac Swigart February 7, 2018 at 1:14 pm #

  104. Kristin Cedar February 8, 2018 at 7:38 pm #

    This seems like an interesting and fun time!

  106. Danielle C February 8, 2018 at 8:37 pm #

    This event has a lot of great talent in one place and I’d love to be there! Honest Chocolates seems to know their stuff, they have a line of special wine-tasting chocolates. I can see why they’d have a store in Newberg, since it’s the best place in Oregon to visit for wine tasting. And Oregon is the best place in the world to have a wine tasting because Oregon wine is bottled poetry.

  107. Kathy Rankin February 9, 2018 at 9:12 am #

    My husband would really enjoy this. He is an avid mushroom collecter and knows all the varieties. He is very knowledgeable. More so than I. He loves wine too. I love chocolate and WE ARE THE PERFECT PAIRING! So pick us. We need to do something fun..

  108. Matthew February 9, 2018 at 10:29 am #

  111. Linda Anthony February 10, 2018 at 11:34 pm #

    I’ve never had the pleasure of a truffle. Help an old lady out.

  112. Shadow Rose February 11, 2018 at 12:20 pm #

    Sounds amazing!

  113. M. L. February 12, 2018 at 8:21 am #
