It Might Pay to be a Good Host

Do you love to host parties? Do the glitterati crash your bashes while Martha Stewart weeps jealous tears? OK, are they really fun anyway? If so, you might win national fame and $40,000. That’ll buy a lot of clam dip, or bouncers.

sterling-glassesSterling Vineyards and Padma Lakshmi are looking for the “Ultimate Host.” There will be four successive challenges in the contest. Respond to them online with pictures, text and/or videos. If you win any one of the challenges, you’ll be invited to New York City in December to compete for the title, the cash and an all-expense paid trip for four to Napa Valley.

The current challenge is “Entertaining on a Dime.” Six guests are coming over. You need to “wow” them with just $75 and a bottle of Sterling Vintner’s Collection Cabernet or Chardonnay. The deadline for submitting your entry is September 29. Subsequent contests will be “Wine and Foodie Movie,” “Date Night” and “Evening with Friends - Host’s Choice.” Entries are judged on originality, creativity, adherence to the them and technical merit.

To find out more or enter the contest, go to the Ultimate Host tab on Sterling Vineyards’ Facebook page.
