Enter to win a Northern California luxury wine adventure.
November 20, 2010 - March 15, 2011

SFMOMA is celebrating How Wine Became Modern by saving our natural resources and offering you a chance to win amazing wine-related experiences.

Beginning November 20, 2010, bring used natural corks to SFMOMA's Haas Atrium for recycling and you can enter to win monthly prizes in our contest promotion throughout the run of the exhibition. A Grand Prize drawing will be held in March for the Northern California Luxury Wine Adventure, a week-long vacation for two featuring:

  • A two-night stay at W San Francisco, where a twist on the familiar surprises and the surprisingly new delights; an evening of tasting at Press Club, an urban wine bar; and an SFMOMA membership
  • A two-night stay at Meadowood Napa Valley, the valley's first luxury resort; a day of wine tasting with their master sommelier Gilles de Chambure; and dinner for two with wine pairings at The Restaurant at Meadowood, prepared by Michelin-rated chef Christopher Kostow
  • A two-night stay at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn and Spa, the ultimate wine country destination oasis; dinner for two at the award winning restaurant Santé; and two spa treatments or rounds of golf.
  • Plus, ever wonder where that little piece of cork in your wine bottle came from? Courtesy of our contest partner, Cork ReHarvest, you'll tour a cork facility in Sonoma where you'll learn why natural cork is the most sustainable and environmentally friendly closure for wine.

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. To enter, bring corks to SFMOMA and fill out a form in the Haas Atrium, SFMOMA's free public space. To be eligible, entries must be received by March 15, 2011. Contest open to adults 21 and older. One entry per person per visit. Monthly drawing will be held on the first business day of each month and Grand Prize drawing will be held at SFMOMA: Now Playing on March 17 between 6 and 9:45 p.m. You need not be present to win. SFMOMA staff and their immediate families are not eligible to win. Prize is not redeemable in cash and must be accepted as awarded.
