Proceeds to benefit animal-focused non-profit organizations
SALEM, ORE., JANUARY 21, 2015—Attention all dog owners! Honeywood Winery, Oregon’s oldest winery, is searching for its next canine to appear on an upcoming addition to its exclusive Dog Gone Wine collection.
To enter, owners simply need to submit a digital photo of their dog and a short essay (no more than 100 words) describing why their pet should be the next face on a new Dog Gone Wine label. Submissions must be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 6 p.m. PST on February 28, 2015.
The contest for the star of Honeywood’s next Dog Gone Wine is open to all types and sizes of purebred or non-purebred canines. While most of the wines feature a namesake breed–such as Bassett Hound Blackberry, Pomeranian Pomegranate, Poodle Pinot Noir, Pug Pear, and Retriever Riesling–the collection also includes a Boxer on the Holiday Dog wine and a Chihuahua on Sergio’s Sangria.
“Your dog doesn’t have to be show quality to win. We just want to find a friendly-looking dog that’s as lovable and irresistible as our wines,” said Marlene Gallick, owner and vice president of Honeywood Winery.
Besides being featured on the wine bottle label, the winning dog will also receive a professional photo shoot and a gift basket for its owner, including Honeywood’s newest Dog Gone Wine.
Initially created in partnership with the Willamette Humane Society for a June 2008 fundraising event, Dog Gone Wines are now part of Honeywood’s regular portfolio, featuring seven of its best-selling wines in special packaging. Honeywood donates a portion of all Dog Gone Wine sales to the Willamette Humane Society or by special request to other animal-focused non-profit organizations, such as Project POOCH, Southeastern Guide Dogs, and as Good as Gold Golden Retriever Rescue of Northern Illinois.
Visit Honeywood Winery’s website for more information and contest rules. Dog owners must be at least 21 years of age to win.
