As part of our EPIC Wineries and Barrels Bottles & Brews Trail programs, we are excited to present the following partnership opportunity:

W.E. Made It Holiday Gift Guide

We are excited to launch the 5th Edition of the W.E. Made It Holiday Gift Guide, featuring locally made gift ideas for the holidays.

Campaign run dates: Monday November 8th through Christmas Day. Interested participants can apply below. Deadline to provide the details is Wednesday September 29th, 2021, 4:30pm

The guide will be part of a $50k marketing campaign utilizing a strong local print, radio, digital as well as a print version of the guide through local media or direct mail (approximately 55k print guides will be produced) in addition to an enhanced digital guide. In 2020 our guide saw more than 343k page views from over 29.7k visitors.

We will again be providing a full page for each of the programs in the guide, which will profile a select product from each winery, brewer or distillery. EPIC partners – the product you provide in this form should match the product you are providing for the EPIC holiday box sales initiative.

To participate you must provide the details for one (1) of your retail items to be highlighted in the Gift Guide

In addition, you can participate in enhanced promotional opportunities by providing two (2) of the same items or gift certificates (at a minimum value of $50) to be given away as part of the Gift Guide promotion.

Please note that the item you want to feature in the Gift Guide may be different than the item you are given away as part of the Gift Guide promotion. 

Your donations will be utilized for the W.E. Made It Gift Guide Giveaway promotion, as well as through promotional campaigns with our media partners for additional live and recorded mentions.
