Invite to Participate
We are pleased to invite your winery to participate in our upcoming New York International Wine Competition (NYIWC) www.nyiwinecompetition.com this May 5-6thnd 2013. This international wine competition will be held at the 3 West Club in the heart of New York City across from Rockefeller Center.
>After the success of running the New York International Spirits Competition in November 2010, vintners from around the world asked us to replicate this successful competition with wine. We were excited with the over 700 wine submissions we received in our first year in 2011 The wine industry have continued to take notice by having a TRADE ONLY blind judging panel wine competition to be held here in New York City. The retail store buyer, sommelier, restaurant beverage director, hotelier, distributor and importer will be our judges. We feel these judges whose livelihood rely upon their skill set truly know what the consumer wants as they receive on a daily basis the feedback from the consumer of what is good and what will sell.
New York City is many things for different people. One of its great attributes besides being a food and travel destination is that it is a talent rich city with many nationally and internationally recognized wine judges living and working here. It is also a media capital and we will be sharing our results with our media sponsors on the local, national and international level.
Recognition by the trade by winning an award bestowed upon you the Vintner. The Award Winners will be able to use their awards (Double Gold, Gold, Silver, Bronze) in their marketing materials at no charge. The award winners will be listed in our online database. At the Winners Circle the winning wineries will be invited to showcase their medal winners at no additional charge. The award winning results will be distributed to our media partners in the local NY Market, Nationally and Internationally.
