Drink Les Dames wine to raise money for a great cause

If there’s one thing better than just plain drinking, it’s drinking for a cause! Say cheers then to Les Dames wines, crafted by Mireille Sauvé from beautiful grapes in the Okanagan. Proceeds from each bottle goes to help support Les Dames d’Escoffier, a scholarship program of food and beverage education for women in B.C.

The Dames white has ‘aromas of apricot, apple, pineapple and a hint of lime zest and mineral undertones’ and is a blend of 80% Pinot Blanc from Sperling Vineyard in Kelowna, 10% Riesling from Sperling Vineyard in Kelowna, and 10% Gewurztraminer from Meyer Family Vineyards in Okanagan.

Dames red is a great ‘fireplace wine,’ enjoyed on its own with friends or alongside assorted charcuterie and cheese plates, burgers or stew. It’s a beautiful B.C. blend of 70% Merlot and 30% organic Syrah, both sourced from vine. Buy online
