Over the past six years, community-minded Wind Rose Cellars in Sequim has generously supported North Olympic Land Trust by donating a portion of the sale of special wines from their collection. From 2014 to 2016, the featured wine was the Harvest Moon Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by the Field Blend Table Red from 2016 to 2020. Wind Rose’s contributions to land conservation over the time period add up to nearly $10,000. Owner and vintner David Volmut recently reached out the Land Trust with the news that the last bottle of the Field Blend had been sold. “I am excited about supporting local efforts to maintain the open spaces, local food, and recreational opportunities that make this such a great place to live,” says Volmut.
In addition to donating a portion of their sales to the Land Trust, Wind Rose Cellars has hosted many Land Trust trivia nights over the years, and has provided wines for events such as the annual Harvest Dinner. “We are so pleased that Wind Rose Cellars has continued to support local land conservation. Our community has been able to support local businesses while also helping to conserve the places we love,” said Land Trust director Tom Sanford. “Wind Rose Cellars sets a great example of local businesses giving back to the community that sustains them.”
