Cool #ChardonnayDay Contest 2021

Chardonnay Day was born over a decade ago as a day for Chardonnay lovers to share their passion for this great grape, and social media was the platform that took this celebration global. That made it a perfect opportunity for i4C to join in the online party, sharing our love for the coolest Chardonnays and raising a glass with our local and international fans alike!

#ChardonnayDay (May 27 this year) is a day to open a favourite bottle or two, pour a glass and ‘share’ it with the world. Use Instagram, Twitter or public Facebook posts and be sure to tag us (@coolchardonnay) and use the #ChardonnayDay hashtag. We’ll be amplifying your posts wherever we find them!

And we’ve got some fun in store leading up to #ChardonnayDay too – a Cool Contest!

Between now and midnight EDT May 26, all you have to do is follow @coolchardonnay on Instagram, and tag a cool friend in the comments of our contest post. This is what it looks like below. Each comment is a separate entry. Bonus entry for sharing our contest post in your Stories (making sure you tag us!)

Five winners will receive a $100 gift card for the i4C-participating VQA winery of their choice, courtesy of Wine Country Ontario. And to perfectly pair with that, Black River Cheese will provide a cheese prize pack valued at $50. We’ll contact the winners on May 27 via direct message.
