Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants, the lifestyle brand centered around wine and focused on creating memorable moments that enrich lives, was named the Official Wine of the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Cooper’s Hawk wines debut in this role at the 24th Annual SAG Awards on Sunday, Jan. 21, 2018, an event which is simulcast live on TNT and TBS at 8 p.m. (ET) / 5 p.m. (PT).
This marks the first of a multi-year agreement between Cooper’s Hawk and the SAG Awards, a relationship that extends to and beyond the SAG Awards’ Silver Anniversary in 2019. The critically acclaimed winery was recently a corporate partner of the SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s second Patron of the Artists Awards in 2017, and generously provided wine for the receptions.
“Cooper’s Hawk embodies warmth and elegance, characteristics that we share with the Screen Actors Guild Awards,” says Tim McEnery, Founder and CEO of Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants. “We are proud to be part of such an extraordinary evening and to celebrate these outstanding representatives of the acting community.”
Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants will provide exclusive taste experiences throughout the evening. Honorees, presenters, industry notables and members of SAG-AFTRA at the SAG Awards ceremony and Post-Show Gala will be served Cooper’s Hawk Lux Pinot Noir, Cooper’s Hawk Lux Chardonnay, Cooper’s Hawk Lux Cabernet and Cooper’s Hawk Clone 27 Sauvignon Blanc varietals, in addition to getting a sense of Cooper’s Hawk’s unique hospitality at two distinctive wine bars in the Showroom. Each presenter and winner will also take home a bottle of Cooper’s Hawk Lux Pinot Noir.
Cooper’s Hawk wines have earned more than 400 awards, including Best of Show at the prestigious 2017 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. In addition to its winery, the company operates 30 restaurants/tasting rooms and the country’s largest members-only Wine Club.
Founded in 2005 by CEO Tim McEnery, Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants is built upon the passionate belief that food and wine hold the power to forge lasting connections. Cooper’s Hawk is a lifestyle brand centered around wine and focused on enriching lives. The concept is a fusion of familiar elements—winery, modern casual restaurant, Napa-style tasting room and artisanal retail market—that has combined to create an entirely new hospitality experience.
