Beloved readers, I am so excited about this week's giveaway!
What is it, you ask?
A magic elixir.
Mama's little helper.
Made by some of my favorite people in the world.
The only SMJ giveaway you need to be 21 to enter.
I can't believe that I am lucky enough to offer two winners each a very special bottle of wine from the Hayfork Wine Company: one bottle of the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon and one bottle of the 2008 Petite Sirah.
Made by our dear friends Haley Wight and her husband, Erik Dodd, these incredibly delicious wines are made in limited quantity...you aren't going to stumble on these bottles at your local Trader Joe's! Hayfork wines are worth saving and savoring with great friends on a notable occasion, or just sharing with your sweetie on a special Saturday. Haley is in the sixth generation of farmers to grow grapes on her family's land in St. Helena, California and her love for the land and the work she is doing with her husband is evident in every sip of this wine.

The husband and I have been lucky enough to score a few bottles of Hayfork, and we've saved it for special nights when we have something to celebrate. Anytime we've treated ourselves and opened a bottle, we've been blown away by the earthy, berry-rich flavor of this wine. Family and friends who are serious about wine and who have gotten their hands on a bottle have all raved as well. What an amazing experience to be in on the early days of something destined to be so legendary!
So, my lovely SMJ readers, now is your chance to be in on the early days as well!
If you'd like to enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment below. If you want to, tell Haley and me your favorite way to enjoy a great glass of red! I'll pick two winners at random this Friday, April 1.
In the meantime, please be sure to visit the Hayfork website get on Hayfork's Mailing List. Their next offering will be in May for their 2008 Hayfork Lewelling Ranch Cabernet, and mailing list members can get in on an order. Supporting a small family business and drinking delicious wine... is there anything better?
And thank you Haley and Erik... I am so honored that you want to share the good stuff via SMJ!
