Bertolli Foods will be celebrating the art of pairing fine wines with regional Italian foods; an art Bertolli always keeps in mind when creating and preparing their meals. To bring this authentic experience to life, they are creating a virtual interactive live video wine tasting and pairing on Wednesday, May 4 at 7 pm - 7:30 CST on their facebook page. The wine tasting and pairing will be led by Sommelier and vino Italiano expert Stacie Hunt, certified by the Association of Italian Sommeliers. During the event, everyone will be able to comment and ask questions.
As a friend of Bertolli, they will provide me with a wine tasting kit so I can follow along with Stacie as she guides me through the tasting process, allowing me to truly define the variety of flavors found in Italian wines and how they complement an array of delectable Italian meals. She will also be giving the full story of Italian wines and even a few great tips for using them in cooking - the complete ambiente!
Bertolli has also offered to send one of my readers a wine tasting kit so you can follow along with me on their virtual celebration!
The Wine Kit will include:
- A Stainless Steel Wine Aerator
- A Rebate for a Bottle of Cavit Italian Wine
- A Wine Bottle Opener and Foil Cutter
- A Tasting certificate for your favorite Bertolli Frozen Meal
- A Coupon for a free Bertolli Sauce
To win, you will have to agree to send me your name and address, have a facebook account, and "Like" Bertolli's facebook page so you can follow along with the wine tasting event in order for me to send it along to Bertolli who will mail out the prize. Please leave a comment on this post if you qualify. I will choose the winner on Friday morning.
In any event you will have an opportunity to follow the virtual wine tasting event and you will find lots of interesting information and activities on Bertolli's facebook page, so its a winning combination even if you don't win the wine tasting kit
That's it! Good luck!
