Sixth Annual Rancho Vignola Giveaway
NOTE: Giveaway now closed
Welcome to the the Sixth Annual Rancho Vignola Giveaway!
For regular blog readers, you already know all about Rancho Vignola and my love for their exceptionally high-quality products and their values as a company. I have been a regular customer of theirs since well before we started running a giveaway on my blog.
Rancho Vignola is a direct mail-order company based in BC. They sell freshly harvested nuts and dried fruit, as well as chocolate and confections. The company owners, Sue and Richard Vignola, work directly with farmers to ensure that they buy only crops of nuts that are ethically grown and harvested, and are at the peak of freshness when they are delivered to my (or to your) door. And believe me, nuts at the peak of freshness are something most of us rarely, if ever, experience, and they are a GAME CHANGER, folks!
If you want a chance to taste peak-of-fresh nuts (the kind that made my almond farmer friend cry with joy) come to the Harvest Event this weekend. Customers can sample most of Rancho Vignola’s many products, enjoy live music and cooking demonstrations, and decide what they might like to order. The Harvest Event on the Island is coming to Sidney on November 24th and 25th at Mary Winspear Centre. Less than one week away!!
I will be at the Harvest Sales Event on Saturday (25th) doing a few cooking demos and handing out samples. I hope to see you there! In the meantime, please enter the giveaway to win a gift basket of Rancho Vignola products valued at $100 (rules below).
The winner of the blog giveaway can pick up their basket at the Harvest Sale on the 24th or 25th, or have it mailed to their home.
The $100 Basket Giveaway Rules:
To qualify for delivery, you must have a Canadian shipping address. Enter the draw in one of four ways:

Giveaway ends by 3 pm on Thursday, November 23rd, and a winner will be announced by 9 pm that evening. That’s five days, folks!
(Non-winners will be very happy to note that Rancho Vignola’s December Online Harvest Sale is coming Dec 1st to 15th. No minimum order required! So, if this post has piqued your interest, and you can’t make it to any of the Harvest Sales locations, you can order some products to try through the December online sale.)

I have read about the Rancho Vignola yearly show at Mary Winspear for a few years now. This year I hope to attend! I would find GREAT uses for all the items in the gift basket!!!
OOH! We went to the Mary Winspear last year and bought several items from Rancho Vignola and are now hooked. We’ll be going this Friday and hope to make this a regular event. It is wonderful to be able to sample most of their products, and of course we bought several products we weren’t planning to buy, because of the wonderful flavours. We’d love to be chosen this year! Who wouldn’t?
Yes please! You converted me a few years ago to their products. I will be at the harvest sale on Saturday. See you then!

On a recent trip I shared some of my raw, organic nuts with a friend. She was wowed and commented they were the best nuts she had ever tasted and where did get them. Of course I enthusiastically shared Rancho Vignola and their story.
I just checked out Rancho Vignola’s website and their product looks amazing as well as their recipes. Thank you for this introduction!
I love the products from Rancho Vignola. I first found out about them about two years ago, and I can’t say enough great things about them. I love that you make wonderful healthy products using such fresh and tasty ingredients. :)

I am patiently waiting for my delivery of almonds and Turkish apricots. Also heading to Sydney to pick up other delicious nuts and fruits.
I first discovered Rancho Vignola a couple of winters ago and have been really excited about their oh so fresh products. They are truly amazing and you have some awesome recipes using their products. Yum!

Glad to hear about this source. Some Xmas favorites call for walnuts which are rarely optimally fresh from grocery or bulk stores.
