GOERT and the Garry Oaks Winery Partnership
Exciting new partnership between GOERT and the Garry Oaks Winery on Salt Spring Island
Nalini Samuel, the new owner of Garry Oaks Winery on Salt Spring Island, is devoted to making fine wines and to giving back to the community.
In recognition of her winery’s namesake and the huge old Garry oaks growing behind the wine tasting room, Nalini has decided to contribute a dollar from every person who does a wine tasting at the winery to GOERT. She calls it “Put a cork in it” and each person is given a cork after the wine tasting which she or he puts into a glass vase under a poster board that illustrates the attributes of Garry oak ecoystems and how GOERT is moving to protect them. Once a month, she will add up the corks and donate to GOERT.
She is also contributing white wine to the opening of our upcoming art show at the Bateman Gallery, “Rooted in History, Celebrating the Garry oak ecosystem”. Many thanks to Nalini.
