Merritt Winery offers wine tasting contest for Mother’s Day

FORESTVILLE – Mother’s Day is just around the corner and Merritt Winery wants to help get mom the perfect gift by giving her the chance to win a wine and cheese tasting this Mother’s Day.

What better way for your mom to enjoy her day than to spend it at a winery with five of her closest family members or friends sipping wines. The wines will be paired with Yancey’s Fancy cheeses during this private tasting inside Merritt’s tasting room.

To win this perfect gift for mom, compose an email, of 150 words or less, containing the best reason(s) you can think of that she deserves to win the private tasting. Email it to by May 5. The winner will be chosen on May 6 and announced through all Merritt outlets. The winning story will be featured on Merritt’s blog and website. Along with the tasting, mom gets a special gift before she leaves.

“We’re all looking for the perfect way to say thank you to our moms on Mother’s Day,” Merritt’s Director of Marketing Michael Ferguson said. “Can’t get much better than fighting to win them something by writing how special they are.”
