Since 2005, the Alumni Association has partnered with local wineries for its annual Alumni Wine Program. Proceeds from the program support the UFV Alumni Association’s bursary fund to benefit UFV students.
2021 FEATURED WINES
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot, this wine flourishes with red berries on the nose with a hint of toast and savoury smoke. The fresh and intense flavour is accented with notes of pepper and spices and finishes long, soft, and silky on the palate.
Chaberton Estate Winery 2020 Pinot Gris
Soaked on the skins for 10 hours, this Pinot Gris’ slight pink luster and crisp grapefruit notes make for an amazingly refreshing wine. With melon, honey, cucumber and a beautiful minerality on the palate.
The Alumni Wine Program also provides an opportunity for us to showcase the artwork from UFV alumni through our Annual Alumni Wine Label Contest. This year’s wines feature the Indigenous animal designs of Chantelle Trainor-Matties. Chantelle’s two designs (one for red wine and one for white) reflect her love of animals and her Indigenous heritage.
