Ronda, N.C., March 22, 2017—Attention animal lovers! Raffaldini Vineyards is searching for a rescue dog to feature on the label of its red wine, Pino Vino IX. This is the ninth release of Pino Vino, and like previous vintages, a portion of Pino Vino IX wine sales is donated to local, no kill animal rescue organizations in support of all rescue animals.
“Our goal for this competition is to raise awareness for rescued pets and provide them with the compassion that all animals deserve,” said Owner and Winemaker Jay Raffaldini. “We are touched by the unconditional support demonstrated by our participants towards animals in need, and in the end, we are all winners because of the impact and inspiration these special creatures have on our lives.”
Raffaldini Vineyards is accepting submissions of rescue dogs until April 30, 2017. The winning rescue dog will be revealed at a special unveiling ceremony at 1pm on Saturday, June 17.
Entries can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, contact information, your dog’s name, a digital photo of your rescue dog, and their rescue story in 50 words or less. The Pino Vino IX winner will be notified on May 5.
