This post is sponsored by the Minnesota Grape Growers Association, who provided the photographs used in this post. In exchange for writing this post, I received compensation and a Minnesota Wine Passport. As always, all content and opinions are my own unless otherwise noted.
Do you have a wine lover on your list this holiday season? Give them the gift of wine! As longtime readers know, I love to support local agriculture and producers, so I'm thrilled to partner with the Minnesota Grape Growers Association to promote their Minnesota Wine Passport.
Each Minnesota Wine Passport passport entitles the holder to 10 complimentary wine tastings for only $25. Passport holders have 48 participating wineries to choose from--the majority are in Minnesota, with a few in Wisconsin and one in Iowa (a map of locations is available here). Each tasting is typically a 1oz. sampling of the wines produced by the winery; depending on the winery, you may sample 3-10 different wines. In addition to wine tastings, each passport includes 35 special offers, like discounts on bottle purchases or a complimentary wine glass with tasting.
My favorite feature of the Minnesota Wine Passport is that it doesn't expire until you've redeemed all of your tastings--you don't need to use them up in a specific calendar year. I'm looking forward to bringing my Minnesota Wine Passport along whenever I take a day trip--many of the wineries are within a few hours' drive of the Twin Cities. The tricky part will be narrowing it down to just 10!
Does a Minnesota Wine Passport sound like the perfect stocking stuffer for your favorite wine lover or a great Christmas gift to yourself? Passports can be purchased online for $25, and shipping is free (allow 5 days for delivery).
I'm giving away a Minnesota Wine Passport to one randomly selected reader--enter the Rafflecopter giveaway below by midnight on December 3, 2017 (U.S. residents only).
Thank you to the Minnesota Grape Growers Association for sponsoring this post and giveaway.
