When I started to fall in love with wine, one of my earliest
supporters was John Sqauir, then at Sandbanks Winery in Prince Edward
County. He has continued
to be a huge influence on my wine education and a wonderful friend who has
generously invited me out on many wine tasting adventures. He is one of my
favourite people in the wine industry.
John and his lovely wife, Sacha, have recently begun work on
their dream – Three Dog Winery – and I couldn’t wish them more success with
this challenging endeavour. I wasn’t able to make it out to their recent
planting party (though by all accounts it was a wonderful and very dirty
success), but I can contribute to
their Indiegogo fundraising campaign. I may not have much to give, but I think
it’s so important to help truly good people create something special.
And Three Dog will be very special – John and Sacha envision
a place where dogs can play (they have three Golden Retriever rescues) and artists
can create. They want to help local artisan chefs and provide space for local
food stuffs to be sold. Three Dog will be a community within the thriving PEC
community and I can’t wait to visit.

Indiegogo fundraising page and read more about their dream – then consider
making a donation. There are fun and interesting items available in return for
your contribution and every penny really does count.
