Win a Chile vacation at food and wine festival

| 25/01/2011

(CNS): A 6-night trip for two to Chile is up for grabs at the 23rd Taste of Cayman event, which will take place this Saturday, 29 January, at Camana Bay. All tickets sold will be entered into raffle drawings and the winning ticket holder will stay at the Marriott Santiago resort in Chile (left) in the Las Condes district with easy access to all of Santiago and minutes from popular ski centres. This grand prize package also includes a wine tour, dinner and $500 in spending money. Other adult prizes include roundtrip tickets to Cayman Airways gateways, including Washington DC, Chicago, New York, Tampa, Jamaica, Cuba, Chicago, Miami, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac.

Child ticket holder prizes include a watersports birthday party for 15 kids ages 5 to 12 from Red Sail Sports, valued at over $400. In addition, kids’ tickets are entered for chances to win gift certificates for bouncy castles and kids zone gift cards.

All attendees at Cayman’s annual food and wine festival can sample delicious food and fine wines from 38 of Cayman’s hottest restaurants but the first 3,000 adult attendees through the gates will also receive a bonus Taste of Cayman swag bag that will be filled with giveaway items.

Spot prizes will be included in some of the swag bags so attendees have surprise chances to win gift certificates valued up to $100 from a variety of Cayman Islands Tourism Association (CITA) members, including but not limited to Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink, Osetra Bay and Red Sail Sports.

This year the event will also introduce a new voting process for the people’s choice award, where a participating restaurant will walk away with the title of “Cayman’s Favourite Restaurant”. Each attendee will be given a wooden coin upon entry and as they walk around sampling meals from each establishment, visitors will choose to drop their coin into a voting bin outside the booth of their chosen restaurant. At the end of the night all coins will be tallied and Cayman’s Favourite Restaurant of the year winner will be announced.

There will be a traditional heavy cake competition at All Things Cayman, a dedicated display of local crafts and music. In the Bacardi Mojito Lounge, a live DJ will provide good vibes while visitors dance the night away and sip on the best Mojito outside of Cuba.

The Zen Lounge by Taikun Sushi, Veuve Clicquot and The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman will be an intimate setting with a top shelf bar and bubbly by Veuve Clicquot. The Cassia Court at Camana Bay will be transformed into a luxurious lounge with fine foods and spirits. The setting will feel exclusive but is inclusive to everyone at the festival.

    It would be cheaper to pay for the trip to Chile than go to the wine and food festival.
