Why Enter the FLIWC?

We Promote Our Winners!

In addition to benefiting Camp Good Days, the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition exists to promote the entire wine industry. By entering our competition, your wines will receive the exposure that's important for strong sales and profitability. Award winning wines are more valuable, and even if you are able to sell your entire inventory, you'll be able to sell it for more with the FLIWC distinction of quality and excellence.

Our Auction & Dinner is a large promotion in itself, and the auctioneer emphasizes all the award winners. Many of our judges are prominent buyers, and look to the competition results for guidance. At every opportunity, the FLIWC will be promoting your award-winning entries regionally, statewide and at local wine events throughout the country. Our website list of award-winners is also linked directly to your website.

  • Influential International Judges - Our judges include important buyers for restaurants and retailers
