Support local charity with C.C. Jentsch Cellars

C.C. Jentsch Cellars recently supported Highway to Healing with a wine promotion for a great cause – raising $20,000! The family winery donated 100% of their case sales of Viognier to Highway to Healing Support Society – who compassionately assist families in our communities of Oliver, Osoyoos and Okanagan Falls that have a child requiring medical care that is not locally available. Due to COVID-19, the society has been unable to execute its usual fundraising efforts and Chris and Betty Jentsch wanted to help by setting aside 100 cases of their Double Gold Winning 2016 Viognier for this cause. Juicy and refreshing, this full-bodied wine explodes with aromas of gooseberries, kiwi, nectarines, lychee and green apples before finishing strong with hints of lemon cream and pear cider. Although this special offer is officially sold out, you can still order the wine directly from the online store at: www.ccjentschcellars.com or give the winery a call at 778-439-2391. The winery is currently offering curbside pick-up, Monday to Friday 10am to 5pm.
