Anyone can enter the contest to win one of two $400 scholarships to either the Puglia or Sicily Winery Tours in October 2009

New Haven, Conn. — June 27, 2009 — Wine Lovers Tours ( is pleased to announce a contest which will award two $400 scholarships to either of its October 2009 wine tours: Puglia and Sicily.

“Puglia and Sicily epitomize what we love to do on our tours: combine wine, food and culture,” said Vin Marottoli, President of Wine Lovers Tours. Visits to Puglia’s Baroque gems and Sicily’s Greek ruins are the perfect backdrop to a stage of wine and food visits.

Each tour features 8 nights and breakfast and lunch or dinner each day. The Puglia tour will spend 4 nights in Bari and 4 nights in Lecce. Sicily will feature 3 nights in Palermo, 2 in Agrigento, 1 night in Siracusa and 2 nights in Taormina.

Entering the contest is very easy and is open to anyone interested in traveling to Italy. Contestants should send a one line answer to “Why I would love to visit Puglia” or “Why I would love to visit Sicily”- or answer both and be entered to win one of 2 prizes: a $400 scholarship to attend the Puglia tour and another $400 scholarship to attend the Sicily tour. Entries can be made by postcard or email and must be received by July 15.

Vin’s wine tours are intended for people who don’t normally like group tours. “We try to create an atmosphere of a family or group of friends traveling together,” said Marottoli. Over 80% of his tour participants come back, so he must be doing something right! The “secret” is well-organized unique visits that combine wine, food and culture at an all-inclusive cost.
