Gifts that Give: Laetitia’s Annual Charity Wine

I wrote last year about the 2013 Quattro—an unusual blend of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Petite Syrah, crafted by Eric Hickey. We are enthusiastic about this blend. Not only is it an innovative, delicious and food friendly wine, every year we donate a portion of Quattro sales to two local charities.

Partnering with a charity is a powerful way for Laetitia to be part of the community. We regularly donate wine to charitable events. Many of us individually support charities. We’ve found, however, there’s great satisfaction in giving back as a group through sales of our Quattro to two new community charities annually.

In June, Eric, our Winemaker and President, and Georgie Hackett, our Marketing Supervisor, hand delivered Laetitia’s donations from the 2013 vintage: $15,000 checks to both Habitat for Humanity and SLO Special Olympics.

Julia Ogden from Habitat for Humanity was thankful for the donation. She explained that the funds will go toward two local projects—one of which is in the process of building 17 homes in Arroyo Grande. The organization’s main focus right now is ensuring affordable and comfortable housing for seniors.

Meanwhile the Special Olympics is transitioning back to a three-season calendar from a one-season sports calendar. The donation will aid them in doing so.

For this year’s Quattro, we’ve chosen to support “Jack’s Helping Hand” a local children’s cancer and special-needs organization; along with the “Food Bank SLO” which services 46,000 at risk residents in San Luis Obispo to ensure that county residents– with an emphasis on seniors and children– have adequate access to nutrition and food.

If you would like to join us in supporting these charities, purchase the 2014 NADIA Quattro, which we’ve just released in the tasting room and on our website. If you like the Quattro, know that each bottle you drink contributes to local charity. In celebration of the release we are also offering it at 15% (25% for Club Members) when purchased with the 2015 Reserve Chardonnay. Click here to purchase the “Gifts that Give 2-Pack”.  

 

The 2014 Quattro’s juicy notes of dark berry and black cherry are in perfect harmony with its balancing layers of graphite, violets and black peppercorn. This wine will pair beautifully with a fall or hearty winter meal.

We make 700 cases– and each bottle can do so much with your help. Enjoy a great wine while you join us in making a difference in our community.

À votre santé
