But wait, there’s more (for 21+ users only)! Once you’re following Whole Foods on Forkly:
- Post a Languedoc wine taste on #LanguedocDay (May 3) – The Forkly user with the most wants for this taste will win a $100 Whole Foods gift certificate.
- Post a Chardonnay wine taste on #ChardDay (May 24) – Again, the Forkly user with the most wants for this taste will win a $100 Whole Foods gift certificate.
It’s that simple! But why all the Languedoc & Whole Foods love?
Well apart from the obvious reason that we love our Forkly users, May 3rd is Languedoc Day: an American celebration of Languedoc wines from the South of France. Wine lovers across the US are encouraged to try a new wine from the Languedoc region, to spread the word, and to celebrate the incredible range of wines from this region. Details from the Languedoc Day event page:
Wine Lovers across the U.S. will want to tune in online May 3rd, 2012 as we introduce (or re-introduce) AOC wines from the Langeudoc region in the south of France. The Languedoc (pronounced “long-dock”) produces many of the grape varieties you already know, including Syrah, Grenache, Viognier and Mourvedre to name a few, as well as some you may not know like Piquepoul, Carignan and Mauzac.
The appellations we’ll be tasting blend these grapes into some of the most exciting wines coming out of France today. And many of the wines are very affordable with an average retail price of about $15.
Here’s 3 things you can do to be part of #LanguedocDay:
1. Drink some wine! (Many of you already have this down. We’re asking for you to “discover” a Languedoc wine that day.)
3. See what your fellow wine lovers are saying by tracking the #LanguedocDay hash tag
To give everyone a fair chance to start following Whole Foods Market on Forkly, all follows up until midnight (P.S.T) on Chardonnay Day, May 24, will be in the running for a gift certificate. Plus, show your love of wine with the #LanguedocDay and #ChardDay hash tags in your Forkly notes and tweets and we will be sure to feature you. You have a whole month and a whole lotta great reasons to participate, so get to it!
Good luck & á votre santé!
