Give the gift of giving this Holiday with our private label wine and artisanal panettone charity gift bundle, created in collaboration with Pearl Morissette.
Each Gift Bundle comes with two items: the first is a bottle of The 001, our custom low-intervention Grenache created with Celler Joan D'Anguera and Somm & DINR.
Seventh-generation winemakers Joan and Josep d'Anguera have finessed Grenache into this lifted, ethereal red. Medium-bodied, complex and refreshing, expect strawberry fruit leather, cherry, an herbal note and subtle tannins.
This wine channels a sense of place and terroir incredibly well. Grapes were grown in white clay and sandy soils in Darmós, Spain in the southern region of the Montsant D.O.
The second is the traditional Christmas bread of Italy – il Panettone – but done on a whole different level than what we are used to experiencing here in Canada. A dear friend of Pearl Morissette's has been bringing panettoni each holiday season and they always are THE MOST COVETED thing among the team at the Pearl Morisette farm.
So, this year, we decided to have a special batch baked especially for Pearl Morissette. Produced in a legendary bakery in Bonea, right next to the winery under the guidance the 70-year old matriarch, Addorlata, they are jewelled with apricots from the historic orchards of Vesuvius and soaked in grappa di Donnalaura from Masseria Fratassi. They were just baked and air-shipped to ensure maximum freshness for the holiday season.
A portion of proceeds will be donated to Hope for Hearts at The Hospital for Sick Children. Hope for Hearts' mission is to help change the life expectancy and the quality of life of children with heart disease and chronic medical conditions by supporting programs that promote an active and healthy lifestyle.
