Twitter your way to Chile

The riches of Chile’s majestic landscapes and world-class wines are rivaled only by the country’s prodigious literary heritage. With greats like Pablo Neruda, Gabriela Mistral, and Isabel Allende, it is little wonder that Chile is known as un país de poetas -- a country of poets.

Now you have a chance to visit this captivating land of lyricism, brought to life, not only in its vistas that inspired some of the most accomplished writers of our time, but in its many opportunities to enjoy the harvest of the country’s bountiful vineyards. Tap into your poetic side and tweet us a haiku that represents your take on the lyricism of Chile: vistas, wine, words. Your literary efforts may just reward you with a trip to Chile, including roundtrip airfare on LAN airlines, a five-night stay at Valle Nevado ski resort and some of the best wines on earth.

To enter, log into Twitter and tweet a haiku about Chile, using the hashtag #SipsSlopes. The tweets will be judged based on their creativity, originality and adherence to haiku form.

Hint: I was in Chile last year and think your inner poet might be inspired by Chilean wines.
