Kenwood Vineyards Announces “GO TO” Sonoma Contest

For more than 40 years, the wines of Kenwood Vineyards have been ambassadors for Sonoma wine country. Now those who enjoy Kenwood Vineyards wines have the opportunity to share their appreciation in their entries to the Kenwood Vineyards “GO TO” Sonoma Contest. The contest begins May 15, 2012, and one inspired entry will win the Grand Prize – a dream vacation for two to spectacular Sonoma County!

In their Kenwood Vineyards “GO TO” Sonoma Contest entries, contestants must tell why Kenwood is their “GO TO” Sonoma County wine. Each explanation is limited to 1000 characters or less (including spaces and punctuation) and should detail the origin – whether an unforgettable bottle, a memorable day, a great meal or something else – and evolution of the entrant’s appreciation for Kenwood wines. Though strictly optional, participants also may include a photograph with their entry, one that reinforces their appreciation for Kenwood Vineyards and Sonoma wine country described in the essay.
