June 15, 2021 (Vancouver, BC) – BC’s Poplar Grove Winery is supporting our province’s hospitality industry with partial proceeds from the sale of a premium single-vineyard Rosé. The winery made only 300 cases of the Poplar Grove 2020 Lakeview Rosé, which will be released on June 15th, 2021. $2.50 from the sale of each bottle ($30 per case) will be donated to the BC Hospitality Foundation (BCHF).
Poplar Grove owner Tony Holler comments, “It just seemed like the natural thing to do. The hospitality industry supports us so much and we feel it is important to support them when they are in need. This is how the community gets stronger.”
The Poplar Grove single vineyard Lakeview Rosé is made from Malbec and Merlot grapes grown in the winery’s own Lakeview Vineyard on the Naramata Bench. The wine will be sold at the winery’s tasting room, at The Restaurant at Poplar Grove, and online here.
Funds raised by the program will help the BCHF continue to provide last-resort assistance for hospitality workers in financial crisis due to a serious health condition. A percentage of Poplar Grove’s donation will also be earmarked for a special scholarship that will be part of a BCHF-administered scholarship program that fosters the next generation of hospitality industry leaders.
