Michigan Wine Collaborative Announces The DREAM Project Launch Events
DATE: February 15, 2023
SUBJECT: The DREAM Project Launch Events
The Michigan Wine Collaborative announces the DREAM launch scheduled for February 24th and 25th. The Michigan Wine Collaborative’s Inclusion and Expansion Committee is releasing a wine that will provide seed funding for the Inclusion and Expansion Education Fund. Launch events will be at GRNoir Wine & Jazz in Grand Rapids on February 24th from 3p-6p and House of Pure Vin in Detroit on February 25th from 2p-6p. This fund will provide education and training for 2 underrepresented candidates for future career opportunities in Michigan’s growing wine industry. Tastings of the DREAM will be available at each location along with education on the initiative and bottles of the DREAM will be available for purchase.
“The DREAM Project is an important step in the unification of the Michigan wine industry providing opportunity and awareness to all people and a starting point for universal access to what Michigan wine offers in both employment and enjoyment of Michigan wine for all people,” says Chuck Jackson, Chairman of the MWC’s Inclusion and Expansion Committee and owner of Domaine Detroit Brands. The Inclusion and Expansion Committee has plans to recreate a wine annually to continue to offer this opportunity every year to candidates that apply to the program.
“This wine is a beautiful white blend based on Pinot Blanc, which is a grape that I believe has a real future in Michigan wine,” says Peter King, winemaker at start-up winery Drew Ryan Wines of Southfield and MWC board member. The DREAM was truly a collaboration in the Michigan wine industry between the Michigan Wine Collaborative, Chateau Chantal, Drew Ryan Wines, GRNoir Wine & Jazz of Grand Rapids, Domaine Detroit Brands, and House of Pure Vin of Detroit. The DREAM is available now at participating Michigan retailers for $20 and online at https://shop.chateauchantal.com/prod-403509/The-Dream.html. A portion from each bottle sold will go directly to funding the Inclusion and Expansion Education Fund at the Michigan Wine Collaborative.
