NEW YORK (AdAge.com) -- Sidney Frank Importing Co. split assignments for Grey Goose Vodka's first TV campaign between two independent agencies following a review.

The project went to DeVito Verdi, New York, and Wolfe/Doyle, San Francisco. Spending was not disclosed, but Sidney Frank Importing said its 2003 ad budget is $15 million to $20 million.

The TV campaign, to break in February, possibly on the Golf Channel, will continue to position Grey Goose as the "best tasting vodka."
