In honor of Valentine’s Day and putting poetry into action, I have teamed up with Tapeña wines. It’s time to be creative and talk about your love affair – this time with the grape.
The most creative Piropo will win a four-pack of wines, a Spanish-themed cookbook and some other fun material. What is a Piropo you may ask? Translated literally it is a “flirtatious or poetic compliment to a woman.” Things like, “If beauty were a sin, you’d never be forgiven” or “So many curves, and me without brakes” (shudder). But, that’s been so done. I want to see how clever and unique you can voice your appreciation for wine.
Tapeña—the wine with the little fork on the label—is a blend of tradition, camaraderie and gathering close friends. I had the chance to partner with them a few years ago on an event so if you want to know more about the wine.
For more info about Tapeña, check out their website, Facebook http://www.facebook.com/tapenawines or Twitter @tapenawine. They also have a reward program, for those of you who become fans, where you can get more free stuff.
The fine print – you must be 21 years or older to enter, and that by entering you verify you are over 21. The contest will close on January 31 and you can enter here. Looking forward to seeing your poetry in motion.
