Perth 2011 ISAF World Sailing Championships
Premium Margaret River winery, Leeuwin Estate, and Olympic qualifying event, the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships, have toasted a commercial partnership, resulting in the organisations working together on one of the biggest sailing events ever held in Australia.
Perth 2011 Acting Event Director Darren Beazley is thrilled to have secured Leeuwin Estate as a Sponsor to the World Championships;
"I am delighted that Denis Horgan and the dedicated team at Leeuwin Estate have signed on as the official wine partner to the World Championships,"
Mr Beazley said.
"Leeuwin Estate is synonymous with Western Australia and is internationally renowned for producing wines that rank alongside the world's finest, whilst also being recognised as a leader in wine tourism."
"Leeuwin's quality products, combined with their well-established reputation in the wine and tourism industries, provided a perfect match to align with the World Championships, to be staged in Perth in December 2011,"
Mr Beazley said.
"The Estate has won a number of prestigious Tourism Awards and their continual pursuit of excellence has placed the winery in exactly the right position to join the journey towards the World Championships."
Leeuwin Estate Founder and Chairman Mr Denis Horgan is also excited about the new partnership.
"Given our strong positioning in the global marketplace, we are delighted to have joined forces with Perth 2011, which truly is a world-class international sporting Event,"
Mr Horgan said.
"Teaming with an Olympic qualifying event of the international calibre of the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships, complements our brand profile across Australia and internationally."
Leeuwin Estate has enjoyed a previous association with sailing through our activities with the America's Cup when it was held in Fremantle and our sponsorship of the sail training ship, The Leeuwin.
"This is a great opportunity to retain our connection with the international sailing community. We plan to have a signature Perth 2011 wine available promoting our association with the World Championships, but this is just one element of what we have planned for the next two years."
Leeuwin Estate is located in the picturesque Margaret River region, a scenic 55 minute flight or three hour drive south of Perth. International athletes and their families will be encouraged to visit the south west and to enjoy Leeuwin Estate's fine wines, award winning restaurant and alfresco concerts, in this unique part of Western Australia.
