Calling all poets and wine lovers. To celebrate the 151st anniversary of Gundlach Bundschu winery (March 12, 1858, is the date that Jacob Gundlach signed the deed to the estate) the winery is holding a virtual poetry slam on March 12, 2009. Each entry has to be 151 words or less and can be poetry, an essay, song lyrics, whatever you like as long as it touches on the theme of wine.
What do you win for your efforts? The winery will select a handful of winners who will have their work published on their website and in print. Because wine regulations vary by state the winery is a bit curtailed in their ability to award wine prizes, but they will do their best to provide additional awards. The web page has complete details. Entries will be accepted online only, from 12:00am to 11:59pm, Pacific time on March 12, 2009.
