Have a Heart Wine Tasting

News Release: November 1, 2018

About: Taste Wine from a Winery that Gives Back!
 
Join us for "Have a Heart Wine Tasting" featuring "Big Guy Wine Cellars" (https://www.bigguywinecellars.com/California Red Blend on Saturday, November 17th all day long "on the house" from 10am to 7pm @Metrowines. 
 
What's "Have a Heart" all about? 
 
"Big Guy Wine Cellars" has committed to donating $2.00 of every case sold to Paws for Purple Hearts (https://www.pawsforpurplehearts.org/who-we-are/), a non-profit organization dedicated to helping service veterans by providing them with the highest quality service dogs and canine assisted therapeutic programs. The PHH goal is to improve the lives of American warriors facing mobility challenges and trauma related conditions such as PTSD and TBI. "Big Guy Wine Cellars" understands the sacrifices made by American veterans and wants to do its part to ensure help to those in need.
 
"MetroWines has already bought cases so a donation has been made to help," says Gina Trippi, co-owner of MetroWines. "But if YOU buy bottles or cases, we can buy more cases and make more donations!"
 
What about the Wine? Is it just low end wine with a great label?
 
No! From Winemaker John Albaugh, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Petite Sirah and Merlot presents ripe fruit with an aromatic nose and smooth, lush palate. Well balanced with a solid structure, the soft tannins and sweet vanilla oak carry the red fruits over the palate to a long finish. A crowd pleaser, "Big Guy" is perfect for group gatherings and the holiday table but can also go solo!
 
Who is "Big Guy"?
The Winery says: "Winemaking goes to the dogs! Our beloved Soft-coated Wheaten Terrier Ty, also know as “Big Guy”, spent many faithful years welcoming guests to the winery. Whether walking through vineyards to inspect grapes or in the barrel room cleaning out barrels prepping for the next vintage, Ty was always happily by our side. His high-spirited presence was guaranteed to make any day that much better. Sadly, Big Guy has left us. As a tribute to his memory, and all of the beloved four-legged friends that have gone before him, an unwavering wine was created to keep their spirit alive."
