Twenty years ago, the Finger Lakes International Wine & Spirits Competition was launched to help our campers—children and families whose lives have been impacted by cancer. The wine, spirits and cider industries responded with conviction and today, the FLIWC is one of the leading competitions internationally. Now, we face an additional challenge, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and complex consequences. In order to safeguard our staff, 100 + volunteers, judges, and all of the communities that we are collectively from, we have decided to postpone the 20th Annual Finger Lakes International Wine and Spirits Competition until June 13 & 14, 2020.
To those wineries and distilleries that have already shipped your wine or spirits to us, be assured that your product is being kept in an area that maintains a consistent year-round temperature, and the wine bottles will be kept on their side to maintain a saturated cork. If you have not yet shipped your wine or spirits, the deadline for all US and international entry forms and fees is May 1, 2020, and the deadline for all Canadian entry forms and fees is March 27, 2020.
This decision will enable your wines and spirits to be given the calm, focused attention that they deserve. For any questions, please visit fliwc-cgd.com, or call us at 585-624-5555.
On behalf of Camp Good Days and Special Times, Inc., thank you for your continued support of our competition.
