UPDATE: The registration date for the Santé International Wine & Spirits Competition has been extended to September 20, 2021 to accommodate the growing demand for on-premise sales of wine and spirits. Current submissions for wine and spirits are approximately 3:1. Consumer demand for small batch spirits with unique flavor profiles continues to drive sales in both the retail and hospitality sectors. The goal of the competition is to provide a platform for emerging and existing brands to spotlight their products for on-premise sales in restaurants, bars and nightclubs.
Winners will be featured in the October issue of Santé Magazine and will be be promoted to its extensive subscriber base and social media audience. Registered companies will also receive the opportunity to exhibit their brands for free in the Santé booth at the Telluride Wine Festival September 23-26. Space is limited to six wineries/distilleries. Contact Emiliano De Laurentiis for details.
Santé is the premier magazine for restaurant professionals. More than 95% of subscribers are CEOs, presidents, and managers in the hospitality industry, mostly for restaurants.
“The restaurant industry was arguably one of the hardest hit by the pandemic, resulting in a significant negative impact on wine and spirits producers that relied on that channel,” said Publisher Emiliano De Laurentiis. “But, the on-premise market is coming back strong! We aim to re-invigorate this market by introducing restaurateurs to the best wine and spirits products.”
Wine & Spirit Competitions Management & Productions, producer of many of the most prestigious beverage competitions in North America, manages the judging. The respected judging panels will represent large volume buyers, influential media, winemakers, distillers, and other professionals from the wine & spirits industry.
The Santé International Wine & Spirits Competition takes place in Santa Rosa, CA. The deadline for submission is September 20, 2021. For more information on the competition and submission process, click here.
