livingston-treeMaking your way in the world today
Takes everything you’ve got;
Taking a break from all your worries
Sure would help a lot.
Wouldn’t you like to get away?

I know i certainly would.  As luck would have it, you actually CAN get away, and for free!  Livingston Wine Cellars is currently running a contest to win a 4 day, all expenses paid trip to wine country.  I live here  and I want to wine!  Err win.  Yeah that’s what I meant.  Now I have no vested interest in this contest, and in fact, I am not even familiar with Livingston Cellars, but I thought this was worth writing about since everyone needs a little extra in the vacation budget.

To enter the contest, all you need to do is write an essay about how you are “Living the Livingston Life”.  Even if you don’t drink their wine, you might be living the life without even knowing it.  Entries are being considered until December 31st, 2009, and need to be 250 words or less about how you achieve the following things in your wine life:

  • Be an individual
  • Stay connected with your friends and family
  • Discover your world, new and old
  • Make a difference to others around you

I think that most of us embody these qualities, don’t you?  The trip takes place in June of 2010, and includes stops in Yosemite, a winemaker dinner, a tour of the Central Valley wine region, a blending seminar with the Gallo masters, and a whirlwind tour of San Francisco – my hometown.

Ok so maybe you’re not in to the “Lifestyle Wine”, but there are plenty of people who are!  Everyone needs a little value in their life.  Livingston is part of the E&J Gallo Winery family.  It’s definitely a value wine, but perhaps you have family members that living in this fighting varietal world who might want to take a trip with you.
