Domaine Berrien is please to announce that they are donating $5,000 to the American Cancer Society through the Hildebrand Harvesters Relay for Life team. This is being done in loving memory of Wally's mother, Kathleen (Kathy) Maurer who succumbed to breast cancer after a 3 year battle. Wally and Katie set aside $1.00 from every bottle of Cabernet Franc wine sold. Cab Franc was Kathy's favorite wine and they are proud to honor her memory in this small way. This is an on-going donation that applies to all Domaine Berrien Cellars Cabernet Franc sales year round.
The American Cancer Society Relay for Life is a life changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back againsn't the disease. The Hildebrand Harvesters Relay for Life team was formed in 2005 to keep alive the memory of local farmer, Mark Hildebrand. Mark was a lifelong resident of Berrien Springs who died at age 29 from colon cancer..
