Liviko holds the Vana Tallinn Baltic Sommelier Grand Prix every year in at least one of the Baltic capitals: Tallinn, Riga or Vilnius. The competition is organised by Liviko in collaboration with Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian sommelier associations.
Liviko has focused its support on socially and culturally significant areas. Liviko has for many years supported the Estonian National Opera, the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra, the Art Museum of Estonia and the Estonian Artists Association. Liviko is also proud to have re-initiated and supported the Estonian Writers Union’s best novel competition. As a gold sponsor of the Estonian Yachting Union, we are helping Estonian sailors take part in the Tokyo Olympic Games. Liviko Cup, a tennis tournament held every summer for more than 10 years, brings together sports fans from all walks of life.
In collaboration with Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian sommelier associations, Liviko has held the most prestigious sommelier competition in the Baltic countries, the Vana Tallinn Baltic Sommelier Grand Prix since 2006. The competition for the best sommelier in the Baltics was named after Liviko’s world-famous Vana Tallinn liqueur.
Kristjan Markii, President of the Estonian Sommelier Association, “As the main sponsor of the ESA, Liviko has helped us promote wine culture, and introduce the principles of responsible alcohol consumption.”
Held for the ninth time, the Vana Tallinn gala is a long-awaited event for opera lovers in Tartu and Tallinn, a meeting place for brilliantly talented musicians. The traditional late summer opera evenings have become a highly valued opening for the classical music season.
The last gala was special, as it treated the audience to the complete and spectacular concert production “Idomeneo”, based on Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s first large-scale and rarely performed opera. Mozart’s dramatic composition was transformed into a dazzling and visually captivating gala evening by director Veiko Tubin. The performance featured soloists Juhan Tralla, Helen Lokuta, Reigo Tamm, Elena Bražnik, Kristel Pärtna and others.
Liviko has been a major sponsor of the Estonian National Opera since 2012.
Olari Elts, Chief Conductor of ERSO: “Thanks to Liviko, we’ve been able to invite renowned foreign soloists and conductors to perform here. The long-term and very pleasant cooperation between the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra and Liviko has made it possible to offer the Estonian public exquisite music experiences.”
The Liviko series of ERSO piano concerts has been a masterful musical journey in the company of world-class performers and music professionals. Just as masterpieces from many centuries ago continue to be performed at the concert hall, we at Liviko continue to pass on the valuable knowledge and skills we have accumulated over more than a century. This is how a masterpiece comes together.
Vano Allsalu, Vice-President of the Estonian Artists Association: “The cooperation agreement with Liviko gives the Artists Association a professional partner who appreciates art, when presenting the works of Estonian artists. In addition to creative freedom and inspiration, the creators appreciate a curious and mindful audience their works can really speak to. At the same time, the wine selection put together by Liviko’s experts for exhibition openings also shapes a mindful wine culture.”
In 2019, there were 68 exhibitions in the galleries of the Estonian Artists Association, which were visited by 55,037 art lovers.
Ott Kallas, head of the Estonian national sailing team, “The Estonian Olympic Sailing Team aims to rank in the top 10 at the Tokyo Olympics. We’re not alone with our wishes and aspirations. To achieve this goal, the Estonian Yachting Union has signed a gold sponsor agreement with Liviko to support the Olympic preparations of the sailors.”
Ott Kallas, head of the Estonian national sailing team in Tokyo 2021, presents an overview of the athletes who have a chance of success at the Olympic Games, “The Estonian Yachting Union is most hopeful about Karl-Martin Rammo (competing in the Laser Standard class) and Ingrid Puusta (competing in the RS:X class), who have already secured their tickets to the Olympic regatta. Juuso and Henri Roihu (competing in the 49er class), and Deniss Karpak and Taavi Valter Taveter (competing in the Finn class) are also hoping to qualify for the Olympics.”
