Burbank, CA (February 29, 2012) – At the dinner gala hosted by state tourism board “Visit California” to kick off its annual Outlook Forum on February 21-23, McCue Marketing Communications (MMC) was awarded Best Public Relations Campaign for Excellence in Tourism Marketing. The winning effort leveraged the state’s “California Wine Month” campaign at a local level to increase visitation to Temecula Valley wine country and elevate perceptions of the region as a premium wine destination. Campaign components included a regional tasting room passport, social media content, a gala event, and press trip, among other elements.

“We are honored to be recognized by our marketing industry peers, especially in light of the admirable work displayed by the other award finalists,” says MMC President Michelle McCue. “The ‘California Wine Month’ campaign was so much fun to develop; opportunities like this are the reason we are so passionate about what we do. We are very fortunate to have the Temecula Valley Winegrowers Association as a client, as they allow us the creative freedom and resources to design award-winning campaigns like this.”
