White Plains, NY, May 5, 2008 — What American city makes the nation feel the most alive and vibrant? A survey released today by [yellow tail] wines unveiled the top 10 nominees for "America's Most Sparkling City." Now it's up to online voters to determine the winner, which will be unveiled during a sparkling event in the winning city the week of July 4, in conjunction with Independence Day.
"The inaugural Search for America's Most Sparkling City is designed to uncover the most animated, brilliant, lively and vivacious city in the United States," said Mark Lyle, vice president of marketing for [yellow tail] wines. "We thought honoring the cities across the United States that make Americans feel the most 'switched on' would be a fun way to remind them to 'always sparkle.'"
The top 10 nominees below were ranked by the highest percentage of respondents as being "sparkling" cities, according to a survey of 900 adults ages 21 and older conducted by Greenfield Online. More than half of survey respondents said that what makes a city sparkle is "breathtaking scenery" (61%) and "great night life" (53%). Americans are encouraged to cast their votes until June 15 for "America's Most Sparkling City" at www.yellowtailwineusa.com.
