Welcome to the Dracaena Wines/VinGarde Valise giveaway.  In order to enter the contest I am asking for less than 5 minutes of your time.  You are going to have to go trough a couple of clicks on the web, but it will all be worth it to be eligible to win this awesome prize. The contest opens on Monday, September 1, 2014 12:00 am EST. 
If you have been reading my blog, you will hopefully remember awhile back when I reviewed this fantastic product. You can see the review here.  This special suitcase, VinGarde Valise is specifically designed to carry your wine when you travel.  I have used this suitcase several times and am still in love with it.  First, I love this product because it is a suitcase.  It is hard shelled and meets all FAA regulations.  With its four wheels, it is a snap to travel with on a plane.  You simply check it like regular luggage.  Secondly, the wine is so secure inside this case, you never need to worry if the precious cargo will survive the flight.
Barry Wax, who is the creator and owner of VinGarde Valise has graciously offered up a suitcase as a prize to the winner of this contest.  Watch this video, to see Barry in action with the suitcase. If you can read my review and watch the video and still not want to win this awesome prize, I think there must be something wrong with you.  Could it be wine has effected your brain? This prize is valued over $200!
