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.
2022 FEATURED WINES
Chaberton Estate Winery 2019 Valley Cab
Black cherry, blueberry, and black pepper envelope this intensely fruit forward wine. The blend of Cab Sauv, Merlot, and Petit Verdot lead to a fresh acidity and soft tannins with a wonderfully long finish of dark chocolate and vanilla.
Chaberton Estate Winery 2021 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. Grapefruit on the nose and hints of cantaloupe and rhubarb on the palate.
FEATURED UFV ARTIST
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 beautiful artwork of Shannon Thiesen. Inspired by the BC landscape and fueled by the energy of her students, Thiesen believes art and creativity can amplify voices and spark change.
