Sip Wine Under The Tuscan Sun

Jun 2, 2011
Sip Wine Under The Tuscan Sun
Create a great recipe to pair with a bottle of Centine, and you’ll be entered to win a trip to Tuscany.

centine_bottlesAre you in need of a little R&R under the Tuscan sun? So are we. But we have to stay here and work. If you’re craving a vacation abroad, however, Centine wines and The Daily Sip are bringing you a chance to use your love of food and wine to win a spectacular five-day trip to Tuscany. Fire up your stove, pop a few corks--and you could win the trip of a lifetime.

Here’s how it works: Grab any bottle of Centine (Chen-tee-nay) red, white or rosé, sip it and conjure up a recipe for the perfect dish to pair with the bottle of your choice. Once you feel you’ve achieved culinary brilliance, click here to enter the contest, which will include submitting your recipe and telling us why your recipe pairs so well with the flavor profile of the wine. Remember, the recipe must be your own creation.

All recipe submissions will be posted publicly on Facebook, so be sure to encourage your friends and family to vote for your creation. The top ten vote-getting recipes will then be tested and tasted by a panel of top New York chefs, who will then select the overall winner of the trip to Tuscany.

We hope your bottle of Centine helps get your creative culinary juices flowing!

Click here to enter the contest now. You can also read the full rules and regulations here. To be eligible to win, the deadline for recipe submissions is August 31, 2011.

Salute, and good luck!
