Win a free wine tasting trip to Chile

Yes, you read that right. Free wine. Free Chile. Free wine in Chile. It really doesn’t get any better than that.

Better yet, it’s easy. The folks over at The Wines of Chile Experience are currently hosting a contest that simply asks entrants to create a Facebook album that consists of 5 photos they feel best express 5 predetermined themes, those being: For the Love of Chile, Wine and Stars, Horses & Huasos, Harvest Holiday, and Urban Wine Retreat.

If the topics seem vague, you can find further clarifications over on their Facebook page where you can officially enter the contest. Dubbed Only In Chile, the contest is a means of illustrating how the country is able to provide travel experiences which are found, as you would guess, only in Chile. From the wet and rugged fjords of Patagonia to the bone-dry Atacama desert on the northern border, this narrow nation even has the tallest mountain outside of Asia.

Oh, and it’s also home to one of the best wine regions in the world, hence the buzz around the contest. Furthermore, with a prize package valued at $15,000, I have yet to come across a travel contest that has offered so much for doing relatively so little.

So here’s how it works. Create your album and officially enter the contest by November 4th. The top 6 albums based on creativity will be chosen as finalists, and online voting will commence from November 5-11. If you’re the album with the most votes at the end of the week, consider yourself strolling through vineyards in the foothills of the Andes.

‘Only in Chile’ contest could send you to South America to sip some wine

Chile truly is an amazing travel destination, offering snow capped peaks, beautiful coastlines, sprawling deserts, and so much more. Whether you’re looking to experience an unforgettable outdoor adventure or be spoiled at a luxury resort, the country can provide both options, and just about everything in between.

The diversity of travel options in the South American country is the basis of a new contest sponsored by The Wines of Chile Experience. Their “Only in Chile” photo competition invites travelers to submit an album of images to the organization’s Facebook page, and then rally their friends and family to vote for the submission. The person who garners the most votes will be swept off to Chile for a wine-themed adventure of their choice.

All submissions must fall into one of five themes, which include: For the Love of Chile; Wine & Stars; Urban Wine Retreat; Harvest Holiday or Horses & Huasos. All entries must include five photos to their gallery that adhere to these themes. The contest, which is open to U.S. residents only, runs through November 5th, with a winner being announced on November 14th.

That lucky winner will receive airfare for two to Chile, five nights stay in a hotel, food and beverages, wine tours, and other activities based on the theme of their choice. The total prize package is valued at roughly $15,000.

As of this writing, there are only five entries listed on the contest’s Facebook page. (View the competition here!) That means, with just over two weeks to go in the contest, anyone can still win this fantastic prize. I was fortunate enough to visit Chile earlier this year, and had an amazing time. It truly is one of my favorite travel destinations and this is a great opportunity to explore the country for yourself.

Just remember, it includes airfare for two. When you win this contest, don’t forget who tipped you off to it.
