Become A Sponsor

Sponsorship Opportunities

Only Bronze and Vineyard sponsorships are available at this time, see below.

Join us to sponsor the Nine Lakes Wine Festival, and you’ll see a solid return on your investment.

Our mission is to grow the wine industry in East Tennessee. We are backed by a U.S. Department of Agriculture Value-Added Producers Grant, covering most production costs of the festival. Therefore, all the funds from sponsorships can be spent on advertising.

Read more about our PR strategy here.

For more information about sponsorships, please call us at 865-483-9124, or email us.

To become a sponsor, fill out the form below. You can pay online, below, or send your check to ARWPA, c/o James R. Riddle, 1474 Highway 61 East, Maynardville, TN 37807. But either way, be sure to fill out the first part of the form below.
