Sponsorship Information

Invest in Nine Lakes Wine Country, and you’ll not only be helping your own business to gain valuable exposure, but you will also be promoting Tennessee tourism, agriculture, and rural economic development. Your investment offers a tremendous return on investment.

The first Nine Lakes Wine Festival attracted a crowd of about 1,000 in May 2017.

The Nine Lakes Wine Country encompasses the 16-county region surrounding Knoxville, with 9 lakes, 3 wine trails and more than 20 wineries. The festival is produced by the Appalachian Region Wine Producers Association, a member group of East Tennessee wineries. We are backed by a U.S. Department of Agriculture Value-Added Producers Grant, covering most production costs of the festival. Therefore, we can do extensive advertising with our sponsorship dollars.

Invest in Nine Lakes Wine Festival by Jan. 1, 2018, and you will also be listed on our association website, www.NineLakesWineCountry.com for all of 2018!
