SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

 

The Minnesota Grape Growers Association and the University of Minnesota are excited to present the 11th annual International Cold Climate Wine Competition (ICCWC), to be held at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum on August 15th, 2019..

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 over 340 wines were judged from 66 wineries from 16 states and Canada 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.

Please refer to the second page of this letter to become a sponsor of the 2019 ICCWC. Benefits available to sponsors (depending on the level selected) include:

Printed sponsorship acknowledgement at the Minnesota State Fair MN Grape Growers’ booth and at the annual Minnesota Grape Grower’s Association summer picnic
Your logo prominently displayed on competition signage,
E-mail promotions, inclusion on competition press releases and
A link to your website on the competition web page: mngrapes.org/iccwc

We hope you’ll join us in supporting the 11th Annual ICCWC!

Best Regards,
