We will be selling our Estate Wine, Gigi’s Blend during this event! This is a blend of our Cab Franc, Barbera, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah grapes. This wine is close to our hearts as it is named after our Granddaughter Gigi, who has Aspergers (pictured above with Dr. Grandin). A portion of the sales of every bottle sold will be donated to The Temple Grandin Equine Center at The Colorado State University.
From the Temple Grandin Equine Center at Colorado State University:
“There are many conditions of mind and body that can be related by animal-human interaction. At Colorado State University, we aspire to create a new home for equine-assisted activities and therapies, a place where individuals with physical, emotional and developmental challenges can heal, where therapists can treat, where students can learn, and where scientists can research.
The Temple Grandin Equine Center will celebrate and elevate the role of the horse in society through the physcial and emotional benefits of serving those in need. THEC will integrate research and education in order to promote evidence-based practices of EAAT. TGEC will work for the betterment of horses and humans alike.”
