ST. HELENA, Calif., Nov. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to the devastation of the Camp Fire in Northern California, Schweiger Vineyards is releasing a limited production of their Chardonnay, specifically labeled for Camp Fire Relief. All proceeds will benefit charities for wildfire relief. Click here to order Schweiger Vineyards Camp Fire Relief 2014 Chardonnay or call 707-963-4882.
Schweiger Vineyards Camp Fire Relief 2014 Chardonnay is entirely sourced from our family operated vineyard overlooking the Napa Valley in the Spring Mountain District. 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.
The Schweiger Family has a strong tradition in the fire service. Owner, 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 Mr. Schweiger retired from Kenwood, he had the opportunity to purchase his favorite Type 3 Engine from Kenwood Fire. Winemaker Andrew Schweiger joined St. Helena Fire Department in 1999 serving as a volunteer firefighter for 7 years. Together, Fred and Andrew continue to provide volunteer service protecting their region of the Napa Valley with their "old reliable" Engine 240.
Due to the charitable nature of this project, no club or quantity discounts will be applied.
