Purdue Wine Grape Team Newsletter

Dear Indiana Winemakers
The  25 th  INDY International Wine Competition  is just around the corner, and the  Purdue Wine Grape Team will be able to pick up your e ntries at the  upcoming Indiana Winery and Vineyard Association ' s Summer Wine Conference &  Annual Meeting, which is held at the Brown County Inn  in Nashville on Tuesday, July  19 th .

Temperatures are expected to be in the 90s so to preserve the quality of your wines  at the highest level, it would be best to keep cases inside the  air-conditioned hotel  during the day, and load them into my minivan the next  morning.

Please give me a    heads-up   if you plan to do so, and have your cases ready- to -go  with your  entry form  and check attached.

If you are not quite ready yet, and want to ship your w ines later, the entry deadline  is Saturday, July 30 th .

Wishing you much success this year,
Christian Butzke
Chairman and Chief Judge
INDY International Wine Competition
