Schweiger Vineyards Releases Camp Fire Relief 2014 Chardonnay
Over the past few weeks, much of the nation was gripped in horror as we watched the entire town of Paradise reduced to ashes in a matter of hours. As the fire and destruction spread beyond the city, it became apparent that the survivors will be struggling to rebuild for years to come. These individuals are resolute and determined to rebuild and we stand with them. This fire is now the most destructive in California history. Unprecedented tragedy requires unprecedented giving, and we want you to team up with us to help them rebuild.
Schweiger Vineyards has set aside a significant portion of their 2014 Chardonnay to be specially designated for Camp Fire Relief. 100% of all sales will be transferred to local banks which are coordinating the distribution of funds to qualified charities. Our goal is to raise over $150,000 for relief, recovery, and rebuilding the areas affected by the Camp Fire.
If you have enjoyed our 2014 Chardonnay before, this is a great time to revisit it after some additional aging in our cellar. This is a full-bodied wine with true varietal characteristics, hints of pear, kiwi, citrus, and apricots, and delicate undertones of oak and tropical fruits. The body of the wine is rich and supple, filling the mouth with flavors. The true nature of Spring Mountain Chardonnay comes through in its mineral character and distinct white peach components.
Many of you know from your visits to Schweiger Vineyards that this is a cause near and dear to the Schweiger Family. Fred Schweiger served Cal Fire from 1960 through 1965. Later, he joined Kenwood Volunteer Fire Department in 1976, serving as a firefighter for ten years. When he retired from Kenwood, he had the opportunity to purchase his favorite Type 3 Engine from Kenwood Fire. Winemaker, Andy Schweiger joined St. Helena Fire Department in 1999 serving as a volunteer firefighter for 7 years. Together, Fred and Andy continue to provide volunteer service protecting their region of the Napa Valley with their “old reliable” Engine 240.
