Ronda, N.C., (June 17, 2017)—Raffaldini Vineyards released Pino Vino IX on Saturday and unveiled this year’s rescue dog competition ambassador, Bentley, who is featured on the wine’s label.
“This year’s ambassador is not only a rescue dog, but works to serve people in a way that benefits everyone,” said Raffaldini Vineyards owner and winemaker, Jay Raffaldini. “It is astounding what is possible with just a little love and compassion.”
A Yorkie from Cornelius, N.C., Bentley was found in poor health, timid anxious and fearful of humans. With love, care and lots of nurturing, he became the happiest, “fur-legged” little boy. Currently training as a service dog, Bentley hopes to help others with anxiety issues.
As with previous Pino Vino wine releases, a portion of proceeds from sales will go to benefit local animal shelters. Pino Vino IX is available exclusively at Raffaldini Vineyards.
