  • Sponsorship Opportunities

    Once again, we are offering the opportunity for wineries to sponsor a wine writer at the Evening Banquet. This was immensely successful last year, giving a number of participating wineries and writers the opportunity to become more closely acquainted. You are welcome to add your own touch to the package, (i.e. inviting the writer to your facilities for a tour in the weekend days following the event). Several wine writers do not have the budget to make the trip for the event. The more writers we can bring to taste our wines, the more written results for the entire industry.

  • You may purchase additional dinner tickets to supplement the sponsorship package but not exceeding 6 tickets total per winery (excluding writers tickets).


  • Wine Journalists will be paired with sponsorships in a lottery, to be held two weeks before the event. After that date, you will be notified of your selected wine journalist.


  • You may add to your sponsorship as you see fit. For example, you may choose to invite your journalist to your facilities after the Wine Literary Award. Feel free to make your own arrangements to add to this opportunity.
