Always a favorite, our Blitzen Caption Contest is back and the entries are rolling in faster than ever! This year Blitzen is accompanied by his sweetheart, Vixen, who is busy putting on her lipstick as Blitzen snoozes. It seems that Blitzen had a fun Christmas with his favorite beverage: wine of course! We know what Blitzen is thinking, as provided by our 2008 Blitzen caption contest winner: “I’ve fallen and I Chianti get up!” But what’s on Vixen’s mind?

Tell us what Vixen is thinking for a chance to win an 18-Bottle Touchscreen Wine Refrigerator, our Gift of the Year! 5 Runner Up’s will win $50 gift certificates. The contest expires on 12/25. That means there are two weeks left to wow our panel of judges with your witty entry!

Here is just a handful of the exciting captions we’ve received:

Pinot attention to him Santa, I’ve been good!

No rhyme or Riesling to it, red lipstick is always a must.
Wine Drinkers Make Grape Lovers
If you can’t handle the Cab, you pick up the tab.

The heart has its Reislings…

Wine on the lips, never goes to the hips!

Lips that touch WINE…will always touch mine!

Fruity and full bodied, sure and so is the wine!

I shiraz am havin’ a good holiday!

Chianti he see how beautiful I am?

Colorful lips for Merlot sips

I’m not that type of Gallo!

I’m hot enough to join the Cabernet!

Please remember to enter on the contest page, and not in the comments here, to be sure that your submission is received. Twitter members, follow BlitzenWine on Twitter, he’s posting the latest clever captions!
