Join us for our first annual 2022 'Rock that Ugly Sweater' Contest that we imagine will soon become a beloved seasonal tradition.  Ugly sweaters can be funny, inspiring, sassy, and just the tackiest holiday-themed sweaters imaginable.  We encourage participation from individuals, and groups (businesses to get their employees involved as part of a team building event, and family members or friends to compete with one another!)

* Eligibility:  Must be age 21+ to participate in entries and to vote.  Van Wijk Winery will determine the winners and will announce the 2 winners during our Saturday, Dec 03 Open House for the Sully Christmas Celebration.  All participants and voters are invited to join us and wear their sweaters at the Open House as it will feature a fun game based on sweater features.

Entries:  Participant entries will be accepted starting Thursday, Nov 03 through Saturday, Nov 26.  See Eligibility above*

Voting:  Kicks off Sunday, Nov 27 through Dec 02. See Eligibility above*

Prize Package:  Participant Winners (1 Individual and 1 Group) with the most eligible votes in each category will receive one (1) Van Wijk Winery Gift Certificate in the amount of $75 and five (5) free tickets to our Wine, Charcuterie & Chocolate event * (Saturday, Jan 21 from 3-5pm).  Prizes are not redeemable for cash.

2 Prize Categories:  1) Individual, 2) Group (e.g. s Business Team, Family Team, Friends Team).  1 prize will be awarded to participants in these two categories for their Ugly sweaters photo with the most eligible votes.  Two prize packages (1 in each Category) will be awarded in total.  Note: for clarity, the group prize is shared by its participants; winning group members do not each receive a separate prize.    

Rules of the Road: Let's Create Some Fun Together!

Entries - Must be present to enter.  Participants wear their sweater when they visit Van Wijk Winery and their photo will be taken by a winery representative.  All entry photos will be assigned a number (no names or locations are shared for privacy) and posted to Van Wijk Winery Facebook and Instagram accounts.  For added fun, participants are invited to submit a fancy title for their sweater or group sweaters such as "The human snow globe."  Participants are strongly encouraged to share their photo posts and ask their eligible* friends to vote for them to compete for votes more effectively.

Voting - Voting takes place online.  Eligible* voters may vote one time for as many photos as they would like.  Feel free to vote for the best dressed photo to show support for those who went the extra mile!

Love where you live!
