One Winner Will Choose Their Ideal Vacation From Five Themed Getaways to Chile

NEW YORK, NY The Wines of Chile Experience, supported by ProChile, announces Only in Chile, a competition in which one wine enthusiast will win a trip of their choice to Chilean wine country. Entrants will have the opportunity to explore the diversity of wine tourism available in Chile by capturing an image that expresses their take on each of five travel themes—For the Love of Chile, Wine & Stars, Urban Wine Retreat, Harvest Holiday and Horses & Huasos.

“Chile’s diverse landscape offers an expansive variety of travel experiences,” says Lori Tieszen, Executive Director of Wines of Chile USA. “Whether you enjoy taking the subway from the city to a winery or sipping a glass of wine under the clearest skies in the world, Chile has it all.”

Only in Chile can you go from the ski slopes to the beach, from the desert to Patagonia, and experience some of the best wines in the world—from cool climate whites to fullbodied reds. Now, the Wines of Chile Experience is inviting travel enthusiasts to learn that there is something for everyone in this beautiful country—whether it be star-gazing, exploring a historic city, taking a moonlit stroll on the beach, riding horseback through the Andes or participating in the yearly tradition of harvest.

Applicants to Only in Chile will be asked to upload an album to Facebook containing five photos, each one depicting their take on the five pre-determined travel themes. The top six entries will be chosen for a week-long voting period, at the end of which the creator of the album with the most votes will win their trip of choice to Chilean wine country.

The winner will select a five-night vacation inspired by one of the five themes—For the Love of Chile, Wine & Stars, Urban Wine Retreat, Harvest Holiday or Horses & Huasos.

The prize package includes two roundtrip flights to Chile, hotel stay, wine tours and activities, food and beverage, and is valued at US $15,000.

Applications for Only in Chile will be accepted from October 5, 2011 to November 4, 2011 and voting will take place between November 5, 2011 and November 11, 2011. Only one entry per person and Facebook account will be accepted. The top six entries will be chosen based on creativity, relevance and adherence to the contest rules. The winner—the album with the most votes—will be announced on or around November 14, 2011.
