Tribute Series Chardonnay 2019 - Dr. Bonnie Henry
This product is currently sold out.
We produced 640 cases of this signature Chardonnay from our Old Main Road Vineyard on the Naramata Bench.
The Tribute Series is a dedication to a Canadian for an outstanding achievement in their field. Each year, JAK & Janice Meyer will donate $5,000 ($1,000 per year over 5 years) toward a not-for-profit foundation, endowment or scholarship as a way of encouraging or honouring the legacies of these Canadians.
This vintage's tribute is Dr. Bonnie Henry, Provincial Health Officer for the province of British Columbia. As BC’s most senior public health official, Dr. Henry is responsible for monitoring the health of all British Columbians and undertaking measures for disease prevention and control, and health protection. Most recently, Dr. Henry has led the province’s response on the COVID-19 pandemic and drug overdose emergency.
Dr. Bonnie Henry's chosen not-for-profit is Food Banks of BC:
Their Vision: a hunger-free future
Their Mission: inspire, empower and support our members to achieve hunger-free communities
Every month food banks in BC help more than 80,000 individuals and 1 in every 3 of these is a child. Many people don’t realize that it could be their neighbour or co-worker who needs help from a food bank in BC. Why? …because there is no typical person that turns to a food bank for help.
It may be a family where both parents are working, but just don’t have enough left over from each paycheque to fully feed their family. It may be a senior whose fixed income just doesn’t stretch far enough. It may be someone who is experiencing a sudden illness, a job loss, has a chronic health problem or is perhaps providing care to a family member.
