We’ve cooked up a new contest here at 365Barrington.com inspired by the popular and 10th annual UnCork Barrington wine tasting which is TWO WEEKS away. It’s happening from 6 to 10 p.m. on Friday, July 11th. So we thought this would be a great time to kick off our new “Buy 2 to Win 2” game with a pair of UnCork Barrington tickets to give away to one lucky winner.
With a new VIP top shelf wine tasting tent and Chicago’s BK Blues Band scheduled to perform, this year’s UnCork Barrington is going to be bigger, better and more awesome than ever. (CLICK HERE for more about the new wine, food and entertainment highlights planned for this year’s UnCork Barrington.)
Tickets cost $40 in advance or $50 the day-of the event. There’s also a $25 “Designated Driver” ticket for guests who do not plan to taste wines. And, brand new this year is a $90 VIP ticket offering access to a special VIP wine tasting tent where there will be an assortment of top shelf wines and a special selection of food for tasting. I hear these VIP tickets are selling fast and they’re only being offered in limited quantity.
For a chance to win TWO TICKETS, all you have to do is purchase a pair of tickets ONLINE between now and the end of the day this Sunday, June 29th. On Monday, we’ll enter your name into a drawing to win a pair of tickets so you can invite another couple or two friends to join you at UnCork Barrington, 2014.
We’ll draw and announce the winner this Monday, June 30th.
They could also use some extra help with volunteers interested in pouring this year’s featured wines. Organizers are currently seeking about 20 volunteers to pitch in as sommeliers pouring wines during this year’s UnCork Barrington from 6 to 10 p.m. on July 11th. For each volunteer who helps out, they’ll donate $50 to the charity of your choice and all you have to do is show up to work the event after taking part in a fun and quick training session at McGonigal’s Pub on Tuesday, July 8th. CLICK HERE for more info about UnCork’s Volunteer program or email Volunteer@UncorkBarrington.com to sign up. It’s a great way to experience UnCork and, if you ask me, it often looks like the volunteer sommeliers are having the most fun.

And, for those of you who purchase tickets this weekend, we’d love to be announcing your name next week as the winner of our first ever “Buy 2 to Win 2” Ticket Giveaway contest.
Event organizers are standing-by now and will be entering all who purchase two tickets this weekend into our drawing.
GOOD LUCK! And look forward to seeing you in two weeks at UnCork Barrington 2014.
