An Island Winery with Strong Peruvian Ties
Peru is special to the owners of the winery. The Brunner family, who purchased the pioneering Island winery in 2012, call Peru home for half of the year. Cristina Brunner is Peruvian and has deep roots, with many family members there. Paul and Cristina’s daughter Paula, 22 and currently studying in Scotland, has established the online fundraiser with the goal of raising £5,000.
Paula, having experienced a mudslide or “hauyco” first hand, knows how terrifying the experience can be. She has leaped to help; saying “Peru is a poor country; it is my country, and from my heart I want to help.”
Effective immediately, and until the end of April, all Blue Grouse Estate Winerytasting room fees collected will be donated to the cause, and the Brunner family will match those donations.
Be sure to take the time in April to visit Blue Grouse Estate Winery not only for exclusive tastings of their fantastic wines, but also to make a donation and support Peru.
