is made from primarily Gamay Noir and Pinot Noir grapes grown in the winery’s own vineyards. It offers aromas of ripe red fruits, is light and fruity on the palate – fun, but with enough depth and balance to appeal to the sophisticated wine drinker – and has a refreshing, crisp finish. You can help support the BCHF, Quails’ Gate Winery, and the local hospitality community by purchasing the 1.5 litre magnum size directly from the winery.
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. The charity also offers a scholarship program that fosters the next generation of hospitality industry leaders.
