SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

 

The Minnesota Grape Growers Association and the University of Minnesota are excited to present the 9th annual International Cold Climate Wine Competition (ICCWC), to be held at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum on August 17th, 2017.

I am writing to invite you to participate as a sponsor of this important competition. As a sponsor, your business will help to sustain and grow the cold-climate wine industry in the Upper Midwest, the Northeast, and in Canada.

Many consumers are still unaware of the high caliber of cold climate wines being crafted in their area. The growth of the industry depends on consumers buying these wines, sharing them, and trying new cold climate wines on a regular basis. The goal of the ICCWC is to recognize outstanding examples of cold climate wines so that consumers can be confident in their purchases.


Your sponsorship at the $250, $500, or $1,000 level will be used to underwrite the judging program. Qualified judges are a key part of the success of any wine competition. Judges for the ICCWC normally consist of prominent wine writers, restaurateurs, retailers, and wine educators from Minnesota, several other states, and Canada. Awards are based on blind tastings by these judges, with Best of Show awards going to the top Red, White, Rosé and Specialty wines. The Minnesota Governor’s Cup is awarded to the top Minnesota wine of any grape wine category.

Last year 64 wineries from 13 states and Canada participated in the competition, and we expect an even greater number this year. With your support through a sponsorship, the ICCWC will continue to be an important part of the growth of the cold climate wine industry.
