Frenchie Winery in Rutherford will donate one dollar from every bottle of wine produced and sold in 2012 to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
Frenchie Winery, Napa Valley’s only tasting room for dogs and a new line of wines, launched earlier this month at Raymond Vineyards in Napa Valley’s Rutherford District. Wines are also available online at FrenchieWinery.com and wine.com.
“Frenchie Winery has made it possible for animal lovers to help continue the life-saving work the ASPCA does each day, just by sharing a bottle of wine with family and friends,” said Elysia Howard, vice president of marketing and licensing for the ASPCA. “We are so thankful to be receiving this generous contribution.”
“We are thrilled to be partnering with ASPCA due to its longevity and never ending dedication to the protection of animals. Frenchie is very excited to commit a minimum of $5,000 to this worthy cause in 2012,” said Raymond Vineyards proprietor Jean-Charles Boisset.
Frenchie Winery is named for a leader and a revolutionary in his own right, the French bulldog of Raymond Vineyards Proprietor Jean-Charles Boisset. Each wine features a special label depicting Frenchie as an historical figure, inspired by the paintings of artist Carol Lew
