OWB To Offer Free Shipping for TEXSOM International Wine Awards
Program will begin on Dec. 1
The producers of the annual TEXSOM conference, considered by many to be the most prominent and influential wine trade education conference in the U.S., are the force behind TEXSOM International Wine Awards (TEXSOM IWA). In 2017, the TEXSOM IWA garnered 3,581 entries representing 29 countries and 19 states, a record for the competition. The Oregon Wine Board has identified this as an important competition due to its esteemed panel of judges and influence among the world’s top buyers, and therefore we want to support the expansion of Oregon’s presence at these awards.
In partnership with the Oregon Wine Board, FedEx will generously sponsor the shipment of TEXSOM IWA entries. On Dec. 1, we will send out an email with detailed instructions for any winery in Oregon to receive free FedEx shipping on TEXSOM IWA entries. In the meantime, you are encouraged to review the entry procedures and prepare your submissions.
In 2017, Oregon saw a 60% increase in wineries represented and a 110% increase in award-winning wines. Let’s work together to keep that momentum going!
