The Palmetto Wine Competition seeks to increase public awareness of the twenty-plus commercially licensed wine, cider, and mead producers of South Carolina.  All of our producers are locally family-owned small businesses.

In past years, we generated press in several newspapers and online sites. Our goal for 2023 is to dramatically increase the level of exposure received for our competition. We need your help to achieve our goals.  Please consider a sponsorship for 2023.

In appreciation for your support, you will receive exposure in all press releases, social media mentions, and website blogs. We offer further the opportunity to place your banner in our competition hall, plus a mention at all medal presentations
