Partnerships can be a great thing. Good partnerships are worth talking and writing about. One of my favourite wine imports is North by Northwest. Last year, North by Northwest got involved with the Movember campaign. They used their November budget to make a donation to the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation.
This year NBNW has partnered with a winery in Washington to develop The Movember Wine Company. This project has been a year in the making. They teamed up with a local artist (Rick Wilson) to create their labels and their friend Trey Busch (Sleight of Hand Cellars) to make some great wine. The result is a fantastic Cabernet based red blend and a bright crisp Riesling all wrapped up in some very cool packaging.
Their commitment: “$2.00 from every bottle sold (outlined on the back label) will go to the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation which represents a $4,000.00 donation if we sell every case”.
At the Ferocious Grape this Friday, we’re pouring and tasting two outstanding wines to raise money for a very important cause.

The Movember Wine Company
The 2011 Movember Wine Company Red Blend is a medium bodied wine showing off aromas of plum and ripe blueberry followed by cigar box and vanilla. The flavors rage over the taste buds … Bright cherry and blackberry finishing with warm spice cake, leather and dark chocolate. A well balanced wine that lingers.
The 2011 Movember Wine Company Riesling is a bright and refreshing wine displaying flavors of granny smith apple, white peach and yellow pear. Flavors of orange and lemon citrus shine, followed by apricot and a beautiful limestone minerality.
Stop by the Ferocious Grape, buy a bottle of each. Let’s partner together.
The Ferocious Grape is also having a Facebook contest. Like us on Facebook and your name will be entered into a draw to win a two bottle package of this fantastic wine.

Ferocious Fact for the Fermented Fruit Lover – Wine testers swirl their glass to encourage the wine to release all of its powerful aromas. Most don’t fill the glass more than a third full in order to allow aromas to collect and to not spill it during a swirl.
