Heirloom Tomato Fest Tix

Win tix to the tomato event of the season at Kendall Jackson Winery

CONGRATULATIONS SAGE ON WINNING TWO TICKETS TO THE HEIRLOOM TOMATO FEST.
It’s been a challenging year for tomatoes, but their moment to shine is finally here.
This Saturday, Sept. 11, Kendall-Jackson celebrates its 14th Annual Heirloom Tomato Festival from 11am to 4pm.  More than 170 varieties of heirloom tomatoes in every size, shape and color will be picked fresh from their own Culinary Gardens for sampling, along with dozens of amazing chefs serving up tomato-inspired dishes, a Chef’s Challenge with former Top Chef challengers Hosea Rosenberg, Chris “CJ” Jacobson and Ryan Scott from SF taking on KJ’s own top chef, Justin Wangler. Marcy Smothers and former Food and Wine best new chef E. Michael Reidt from B and O in Baltimore will MC the event. World-famous pizza tosser, Tony Gemignani, will show-off his skills in a tossing demo, and of course, plenty of Kendall-Jackson wines to sip. Tickets are $65 per person, available online.
Want to win two tickets? Submit a tomato-inspired haiku below and one lucky winner will be headed to KJ this Saturday. Full contest rules here

  1. Red, yellow, green & purple too!
    Sunshine sweetness from the vine…
    Tastebuds “POP” when you combine with Kendall Jackson wine!

  2. tried to volunteer
    have to wait until next year
    hope to go and love!
    PS…I clicked on the wikipedia link for “haiku” and learned so much more about haikus! Never knew that it wasn’t truly just syllabic! Not that I understood any of the explanation provided about “moras,” but thanks, Heather, for broadening my poetic horizons!

  4. You can’t write (or eat) just one…
    yellow orbs aglow
    black krims in their sultry skins
    summer settles in
    sliced, diced, fried and green
    the nightshade’s fruit pleases all
    with a taste sublime

  5. Please oh please turn red
    Unless you’re an heirloom beauty
    Red, yellow, geeen, purple, orange, white
    Round, oval, segmented, striated
    TOMATO

  6. Hi Heather, I submit the following for a chance to win
    The Tomato
    Begins life as a seed
    Plant in earth and water to feed
    A sprout will soon show
    Which is a sign it is starting to grow
    A few months go by and you will see
    The blossoms of fruit with anticipated glee
    After several more weeks go by
    The fruit appears to the watchful eye
    As they ripen from green to red
    Don’t stay up watching and go to bed
    When ripe they are picked by men and women of action
    Then you feast on all sorts of them at the Kendall-Jackson
