WineCollective loves supporting a great cause, especially when wine is involved! November, or Movember to some is an opportunity to raise money and awareness for Prostate Cancer. WineCollective is featuring Movember Wine Company’s Red Blend in all November packages. WineCollective will be one of very few ways to get your hands on this limited release.
The Movember Wine Company is brought to you by North by Northwest Wine Imports. The Movember Wine Company has produced 125 cases of their Cabernet Sauvignon based 2011 Red Blend and 75 cases of 2011 Riesling. The artwork on the bottle was designed and donated to the Movember Wine Company by local artist, Rick Wilson. $2 from every bottle sold is donated to the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation.
Movember Wine Company’s wines are produced by Sleight of Hand Cellars in Walla Walla, Washington. WineCollective and Tannic have been fans of Sleight of Hand for awhile now, members have received some of their wines, such as The Archimage and The Illusionist. Sleight of Hand was named one of the “Next Cult Wineries of Washington State” by Seattle Magazine. Jake Kosseff notes that even in Washington state, you need to be on the winery’s mailing list to ensure you receive each vintage, as all wine produced from Sleight of Hand sells out within weeks to a month of release.
A few boutique wine shops in Calgary will have Movember Wines on shelves while they last, and restaurants such as Model Milk Bistro, will have it on their wine lists. Our friends and members outside of Alberta, WineCollective will be your only opportunity to enjoy these wines.
