In memory of Zima, our 1st wine dog.
Adopted in 2001 from the Worcester Animal Rescue League, Zima developed her own job description. She greeted and gave tours of “her” vineyard to our guests, played soccer and frisbee with visiting kids, helped during harvest and occasionally indulged in a sip of wine (she had a very developed palate for a dog!).
For over 40 years, we have rescued dogs; each one unique in their own way, but Zima will always hold a very special place in our hearts. To honor her and all rescues, those who’ve found forever homes and those still waiting for a loving home, we are donating $1 per bottle sold, to the Worcester Animal Rescue League in Worcester, MA. As of 2018, we’ve donated almost $15,000 in Zima’s honor!
