July 27, 2021 (Vancouver, BC) – Throughout August 2021, Vancouver Island’s Unsworth Vineyards will donate $1 per bottle of select wines to the BC Hospitality Foundation (BCHF). The initiative includes THREE premium Unsworth wines made from Pinot Noir:
- Charme de l’île Rosé
- 2020 Rosé
- 2019 Pinot Noir
Unsworth is a family-owned winery located in the Cowichan Valley, which has been called “Canada’s Provence.” Marketing Director, Chris Turyk, at Unsworth Vineyards says the winery is pleased to support the BCHF, which is the only charity of its kind in Canada. “It’s always great to be able to give back to our community. We’re all about collaborative efforts. It takes a lot of teamwork to produce a good bottle of wine, but when we work together it’s amazing what we can accomplish.”
The BCHF’s Executive Director, Dana Harris, says the organization is “grateful to Unsworth Vineyards for its generous support. Some of the funds raised will be used to support hospitality workers facing financial crisis due to an extraordinary health condition, but a portion will also be allocated to a BC WISE scholarship that will be awarded next year.”
The British Columbia Wine Industry Scholarship and Education Fund (BC WISE) was created in 2020 to support individuals wishing to further their career in the British Columbia wine industry.
At least five $1,000 scholarships are awarded annually to individuals who are currently enrolled in an eligible wine business program, including winemaking, viticulture, and wine business executive.
You can support this initiative by purchasing the featured Unsworth Vineyards wines online or at the retail outlets.
