Purim is less than two weeks away, my friends! Are you getting excited?? Are you sameach yet?!

If not, maybe this will help you get in the Purim mood….

Because you all are THE best readers — and because I love you all, I really do! – I have lined up a whole week of Purim giveaways. It’s my way of saying thank you for reading Kosher on a Budget. And – of wishing you a PURIM SAMEACH.

I’m very excited to kick things off today with a $25 gift card to KosherWine.com. That ought to add a little umph to your Ad Lo’Yada! Or maybe you could start stocking up for your Pesach seder?

However it gets spent, one lucky Kosher on a Budget reader will win a $25 gift certificate to KosherWine.com.

Do you want to win the $25 KosherWine.com gift certificate?Β  You have three ways to enter to win. Be sure to leave separate comments for each answer to increase your chances.

(1) Leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite kind of wine. (Me? I’m a Riesling girl!)

(3) Follow KOAB on Twitter, and then come back and leave a comment telling me you have done so. Already follow KOAB? Just leave a comment to that effect.

Entries on this – and the rest of my Purim giveaways – will end on Sunday, March 13 at midnight. I will announce all the winners on Monday morning!

All winners will be selected randomly. Each person can win only once during the week-long Purim Giveaway.

Good luck & let’s have some Purim fun!

P.S. I’m very sorry to all my non-US readers, but this giveaway is only open to those of you who live in the contiguous United States due to shipping issues.

  16. I like Malvasia.

  17. I also like Mara on Facebook.

  18. Anything dry and red. Moltepulciano, Merlot and cabernet Sauvignon are some of my favorite.

  19. This is for my husband…he is quite the wine connoisseur. He has a wine aerator (which was my gift to him) to let the wine “breathe” instantaneously and a wine preserving pump, to take out air so it will last longer. He really enjoys a glass of red wine, particularly Merlot. His favorite brand of Merlot is Dalton, which is from Israel. Last time we went to Israel, we visited the Dalton factory up North. He loved it! Me personally – I’m an Asti gal, but I try to enjoy with him the ‘bold’ and ‘robust’ taste of wine “balanced by spicy vanilla and turmeric” – to quote the back of one of his favorite bottles πŸ™‚

  20. Moscato

    Golan Moscato is my favorite. Light and not too sweet. Hagafen winery makes some lovely wines as well. I had a Cabernet Sauvignon (I believe that’s what it was) that was wonderful. Of course, that was 3-4 years ago and it was at the perfect age then.
