Old Vine Level                                                                   $500

Don't let the word "Old" deter you from this sponsorship level. Old Vine just means wines are produced from vines that are at least 20-35 years old. While 20-35 may be old for grape vines, some may say that they are just in their prime of life. This is why the Old Vine Sponsorship is the event's prime (and most popular) sponsorship level.

Two complimentary tickets to the event

Mention on event signage and in the event program

Your choice of a bottle of wine featured at this year’s Spotlight.

 


Vin de Table Level  
$350

While Table Wine may be your everyday drinking wine, this doesn't mean it is ordinary. In France, Vin de Table is often the wine drunk with the midday meal. This is what we like about our Vin de Table sponsors, they are always available for a good party—no matter the time of day.

For your sponsorship you will receive:

Two complimentary tickets to the event.

Mention on event signage and in the event program
