Woof Woof: supporting PetRescue
In 2017 we created our Woof Woof wines range to help give support to animal rescue organisations. Our chosen animal rescue charity is PetRescue, an Australia-based pet rescue group that supports over 950 animal rescue charities around the country.
For our part, from each bottle of Woof Woof wine sold, we donate 10% of the sale to PetRescue. We’ve had tremendous support from our visitors, and almost everyone walks away with a bottle of Woof Woof under their arm – fantastic!
We also often donate funds direct to other animal charities:
- RSPCA (we recently adopted ‘Freya’ the horse),
- Dog Rescue Newcastle (kitten and puppy supplies),
- Greyhound Rescue (donated funds towards a new freezer for the doggos’ food), and
- Koala Hospital Port Macquarie (the 10% from each bottle sale from the last cases of our Woof Woof Rosé will go to this wonderful charity).
While our Woof Woof wines are not produced from our Lucy’s Run grapes, we take pride in sourcing our Woof Woofs from local vineyards and local winemakers. By ‘sourcing’ we mean that we do all the very hard legwork in tasting and deciding on what wines we want for Woof Woof – it’s a tough job!
The criteria for inclusion in our Woof Woof range are that the wine must be from an award-winning local Hunter vineyard, and it must also be made by a local award-winning Hunter winemaker. Not asking much are we, but at least you know you’ll be getting a great wine in bottle! Our four Woof Woof wines to date have all been made by very well-known local Hunter winemakers – we won’t give away the names of our Woof Woof wines winemakers … you can ask but we won’t tell!
