Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard Adds New Wines to Promote Their Horse Rescue

three bottles of Baiting Hallow Farm Vineyard Horse Rescue wine

Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard, which was profiled in our winter 2010 issue, has progressed in its mission to not only make good wine, but to provide a haven for rescued horses. To help itself out, the winery has released three blends; 100 percent of the profits from their sales goes to fund the horse rescue.

Owner Sharon Levine describes the wines: “Angel: A chardonnay fermented in oak and steel is named for Angel, our first rescue. She was one and a half when she was pulled from the kill pen.  She is due to star in a documentary film on horse slaughter.  The producer wants to approach this subject from the perspective of a single horse, and has chosen Angel. Mirage, named for their Arabian mare,  is a cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon and merlot blend. Savannah Rose is an off dry rosé. Its equine namesake, Savannah, a thoroughbred filly, is inseparable from Sienna, the soul sister she was pulled from the kill pen with when she was just a year old.”

The horse rescue wines are on sale in the winery’s tasting room for $26 per bottle with case discounts.
