And, the winner this week is… Gwendolyn Alley of Wine Predator and Art Predator. All names were placed in my hat (ice bucket), and drawn at random.

Congratulations, Gwendolyn, who also just returned from Portugal with me as the first runner-up of a wine trip contest.

The original contest winner of “Why I Want to Go to Portugal to visit Enoforum Wines with Jo Diaz” was Sonadora, who contracted the flu just before the trip. She had to withdraw at the last minute. (UPDATE: Sonadora’s now scheduled to be traveling to Portugal in January, gratis of Enoforum, to claim her prize. Enoforum Wines felt that they couldn’t penalize Sonadora not being able to make it because of the flu, so she’s now headed to Portugal for her week in that gorgeous country. She’ll also be visiting the Alentejo region, Lisbon, and beyond. Meanwhile, Gwendolyn is on her own winning streak!

The glasses will be going into the mail next week, Gwendolyn, and now we’re onto Week Three.

  • As of today, all comments in any blog posting from now until the end of day on Friday are entered to win Week Three’s gift.
