VAIL — Beginning today, guests and locals in Vail are invited to participate in a social wine hunt for the chance to win either two tickets to the Mountain Top Picnic or the grand prize of two signature passes to the 25th annual Taste of Vail.

Today through Jan. 24, participants must simply like the Taste of Vail Facebook page and follow the clues that will be posted throughout the week in order to find four wine bottles hidden in Vail Village. In order to enter, a picture of the entrant and the wine bottle must be either uploaded to the contest tab on Taste of Vail’s Facebook page or tagged on Instagram or Twitter with #tasteofvail2015. Participants who enter via Instagram must make sure that their profile is public prior to tagging #tasteofvail2015.

Follow the Clues

A new location with a different wine bottle will be revealed throughout the week so participants are encouraged to follow the clues posted on Facebook in order to increase their chances of winning. Those who have located and uploaded pictures from one to three locations will automatically be entered to win two tickets to Taste of Vail’s signature Mountain Top Picnic. Participants who upload images from all four wine bottle locations will be entered to win two Signature Passes, which provides access to all four signature events including the Debut of Rose, the American Lamb Cook-Off and Apres Ski Tasting, the Mountain Top Picnic and the Grand Tasting.

The contest will close at 2:30 p.m. MST on Jan. 24 and winners will be chosen at approximately 3 p.m. MST on the same day. For additional details on the social Wine Hunt, visit Taste of Vail’s Facebook page.
