Metal Imagination’s Wine Gift Sculpture Winner Announced

Weekly Holidaze Drawing: Just leave a comment on any wine-blog entry this month, to win gifts this December:

So, I placed all of your names in my magic hat above (shiny pewter object to the left of the wine that came in this week ~ J Wines and Austria’s Laurenz V.); one for each entry, for each day entered. I fully shuffled the names, and pulled  a name out at random.

And, the winner is … Roger Paige of Roger Lee Paige. (Dedication pays off!)

Many of you who signed up took my recommendation and entered more than just the first day. This (in the weeks to come) will increased your chances throughout December, and that’s how Roger won his metal sculpture. Congratulations!

I’ll pass along your Email, Roger, to Metal Imaginations. Please decide which wine gift sculpture you’d like to have, and then you can tell Sean, who will arrange for it to be shipped directly to you this coming week.

Thanks, too, to Metal Imaginations, for providing this week’s wine gift give away.


Week 2’s (December 7 – December 11) giveaway, to celebrate this holiday month, is going to be another pair of the Masters of Petite Sirah Riedel Vinum glasses ($70.00).

Thanks for participating, everyone, and better luck next time. There are still four more way cool prizes for the rest of the month.

I’m giving you all a plug, too, because you’ve spent time dedicated to the task. You’re a pretty awesome group, one and all:

Still to come:

  • Week 2 (December 7 – December 11) Another pair of the Masters of Petite Sirah Riedel Vinum glasses ($70.00)
  • Week 3 (December 14 – 16) A small, two glass Riedel decanter ($50.00 ~ give or take a bit, I can’t find my invoice)
  • Week 4 (December 21 – December 25) A pair of tickets to Dark & Delicious, next February 19, 2010 ($120.00)
  • Week 5 (December 28 – January 1, 2010… Yes!) A dual membership as GrouPieS in the PSILY organization ($75.00)

Happy Holidaze from me to you! Don’t forget… This is next week’s gift.

    Way to go, Roger. If anyone deserves it, he does. You won’t find a better man anywhere.

  2. ROGER says:

    Yahoo! Thanks so much Jo. I’m about to go on their site now and peruse the goods. 🙂

    Thanks Tom, as always you’re too kind.

  3. Jo says:

    Tom, I believe you; but I have one little exception, and that’s my Mr. Wonderful Jose.

  4. Congratulations Roger. I am horribly jealous but I am glad to see someone win that is excited about the prize. I hope you will tell us which one you end up selecting.

    I love that ‘Frosty the Snowman’ magic hat thingy of yours…is it an ice bucket?

  6. Sonadora says:

    Congrats to Roger!

    I’d like to enter for this week’s drawing!

  7. Jo says:

    Vinogirl, Yes, it is an ice bucket. I found it a few years ago, and couldn’t resist.

    Sonadora, You’re in for this weeks’s drawing. You can just leave your name each day, and it will increase your chance for these gorgeous glasses.

    Good luck to both of you.

  8. ConstanceC says:

    Hi Jo-

    First of all, please enter me for those glasses! 🙂

    Second of all, what did you think of the Laurenz V Charming? I actually revisited it myself on Saturday night and found it to be quite delightful!!

    Hope you enjoyed it!

  9. Loweeel says:

    mmmm want those glasses 🙂

  10. Jo says:

    ConstanceC, I’ve got to slow down long enough to taste it. I’m got a few wines from Austria, so I want to do an Austrian blog posting with it included. Good to know you’ve found it delightful. If it’s anything like other Austrian wines I’ve had, it’s going to be gorgeous… Just like the glasses. You’re entered to win…

  11. Jo says:

    Loweeel… I know what you’d be doing with them, Mr. Petite Jr. (Gotta give Senior to Jim Concannon).

  12. ROGER says:

    Thanks Bean & Sonadora,

    Ok, I finally chose the (drumroll please) Gentleman Johnny Wine Bottle holder. I know it’s not a holiday choice, but I don’t want to have to put it away for most of the year.

    I’m going to keep it on my desk where I can view it and say ~ yup, I won that 🙂
