Wine Marathon on PBS, and Prizes to be Won

Published by at 10:35 AM under Wine Education,Wine Making


Finally, an alternative to those Jersey Shore reruns: PBS is showing a 24-hour Wine Marathon starting at 6AM on January 30th! The marathon will consist of Uncorked: Wine Made Simple, and the first season of JG’s Official Favorite Television Show, The Winemakers. Just a reminder: Just Grapes’ very own Don Sritong is a contestant on Season 2 of The Winemakers, for the first 15 of what we hope will be his many minutes of wine-based fame!

So not only is this wine show marathon going on, but there’s also The Great American Wine Riddle: a series of four riddles that, if you answer correctly, get you the chance to win a trip to California’s wine country! To join in on the fun, join the Winemakers Facebook, where they’ll announce the first riddle tonight at 11:59PM. An additional riddle will be posted on the 28th, 29th and 30th, and you’ll have to post your answers before 6AM on January 31st to the Winemakers’ Facebook page in order to get a chance to win.

Because we want you, our loyal blog reader and customer, to get the chance to go to California, we’ll sneakily hide clues to the riddles on various pages of our website. And, ahem, Just Grapes may or may not be giving hints to where the clues are hidden on our website, so be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter. The winner will be announced on February 8th at 7PM on Facebook.

One more thing: On January 30th, along with the Wine Marathon, TasteLive and Brian von Dedenroth will host a virtual tasting of the winner’s wine from 5PM to 7PM, and we’ll all be able to talk about via the interwebs. Of course, Just Grapes will pour the wine at the time, so stop on by and join in on the fun!

TV, wine, prizes: it doesn’t get any better, and Just Grapes is where its at. See you there!
