The Girls is produced and distributed by TIME winery
We are thrilled to launch a wine that we have created to give 100% of the profits to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – BC/Yukon Region (CBCF).
It is a Rosé, made in the Okanagan by a top Napa winemaker, and retails for approximately $20. We are thrilled to be collaborating with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and to have their support.
Please help us raise $20,000 for breast cancer in October! We’ve already pledged up to $10,000 to CBCF, on the basis that we will match your donations dollar for dollar up to $10k from our side.
A special wine community donations page has been set-up, so please take a few minutes and make a donation. $10 is great! $20 is better. Please find it in your heart to make a donation and support a great cause.
The story of our wine is below and on the site www.charitablewines.org
I’m fortunate to be a Master of Wine, one of 300 in the world. I’ve been in the wine business for 21 years. Hey, I’m young at heart…
Recently I’ve had three close friends diagnosed with breast cancer. One of them survived and is back working with me, another, a client, is still fighting tooth and nail, and the last one, very sadly, passed away.
You feel totally hopeless – like there’s nothing you can do to really help. An email, or a phone call, or even a visit doesn’t really cut it. But then I had this idea. I should create a wine that gave 100% of the profits to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Maybe if we made a really delicious wine and garnered the community’s support, then together, we could actually make a difference. We could raise money to help researchers and doctors find a cure.
We are thrilled to have the support and collaboration of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – BC/Yukon Region. I very much hope you enjoy our wine. I take this opportunity to thank you for buying it, for making a difference, and supporting a great cause.
Stockists are listed below. Our production is limited so please don’t wait, and we are very eager to hear your thoughts on the wine at James@finevintageltd.com
A very special thanks to the Lui family for their extremely generous support, which includes 50% of our own donation.
