The wedding day is one of the most important in a person's life, and today's couples strive to create a one-of-a-kind experience that is both personal and memorable for their guests, all while trying to stay within their budget. For one lucky couple, Mirassou Winery plans to help. The Mirassou family has been growing grapes and crafting superior wines in California since 1854, earning them the distinction of being America's oldest winemaking family. Today, the Mirassou wine style is refreshing and fruit-forward.
This year's contest kicks-off on March 2, 2010 and runs through June 27, 2010. Couples can enter to win $10,000, plus a trip to San Francisco and northern California wine country for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet with wine expert David Mirassou and Celebrity Chef Aida Mollenkamp, host of the popular Food Network show "Ask Aida," to plan their custom California-inspired wedding menu, complete with food and wine pairings.
Up to five lucky finalists will be chosen and featured at www.mirassou.com for an online vote from July 16 - August 8, 2010, and all finalists will receive a Mirassou gift package. Finalists are encouraged to run their own campaigns to earn votes, since the winner will be the finalist with the most votes. The winning couple will be announced in August and will meet with Aida and David this fall to learn about the hottest wedding food and wine trends, as well as plan their own personalized wedding menu.
