Mirassou Winery Bright Ideas Grant Program & Giveaway!

I am a big fan of Mirassou Winery for two reasons: I love their wine (specifically their Pinot Noir and their Riesling!) and their commitment to helping people turn their dreams into reality with the Mirassou Bright Ideas Grant Program. My husband and I have been enjoying Mirassou wine all year, so I was very excited to see that Mirassou was one of the sponsors of Bloggy Boot Camp, a blog and social media conference for women, which I attended in May. I was not only impressed with their wine; I loved Mirassou’s heritage of over 155 years of innovation built upon the foundation of strong women. They are America’s oldest winemaking family, and their dedication to helping bloggers – and any individual with a bright idea – was both exciting and refreshing to me.

If you have a bright idea to start a business, to empower people, to make a change or to even make a difference, but you need a little funding to make it happen, then the Mirassou Bright Ideas Grant Program is for you! They are awarding a total of $20,000 in grants to entrepreneurial individuals to help turn their bright ideas into reality. You can learn more about the Bright Ideas grant program and apply on the Mirassou Facebook page from now until October 31, 2011.
