Shenandoah National Park Trust announces new philanthropic support through release of DuCard Vineyards limited edition “Shenandoah” label wine
MADISON, VA – On Sunday, April 9 at 1:00pm, boutique Virginia winery DuCard Vineyards will officially release “Shenandoah,” a new wine created specifically to support the Shenandoah National Park Trust. The park borders the winery in Madison County, Virginia. The release event is open to the public and the press.
The label depicts Whiteoak Canyon and Falls, just around the corner from DuCard, in the style of 1930’s era posters that were commissioned for the western National Parks. DuCard has obtained the exclusive rights to use this iconic image from former park ranger and longtime enthusiast Doug Leen.
DuCard will donate $1 per bottle sold to the Shenandoah National Park Trust, and will provide specially signed and packaged bottles of the Shenandoah wine to the Trust in support of its fundraising activities.
“Shenandoah” is a slightly sweet white wine consisting primarily of Traminette grapes from a partner grower in the Shenandoah Valley, and is a terrific refresher on the DuCard patio, overlooking Shenandoah National Park, after a hike at Whiteoak Canyon.
DuCard Vineyards is a boutique Virginia winery located in beautiful Madison Country, VA. DuCard wines are sold only at the Madison County tasting room, just north of Charlottesville, and by mail order (most states); they are not available in any retail locations.
