Last year, through sales and matching funds, Blue Grouse was able to donate $20,000 to Nourish Cowichan and provide 10,000 meals to families in need! An outstanding result that was only achieved through donations in multiple channels. To meet or beat 2021, the whole Blue Grouse team is asking for as many donations as possible through the winery, online, restaurants, and retail stores. Our 2022 goal is to reach at least $25,000. For those who would like to contribute to the campaign without the purchase of alcohol, they can head to Blue Grouse’s Canada Helps link and send any contribution.
Wolf & Grouse is a collaborative project between Paul Brunner (proprietor, Blue Grouse Estate Winery) and
Alex Gallé, Belgian designer and entrepreneur behind Monteluz Pisco. Two long-time friends who have
connected over their love for wine, spirits, and food. One evening, over Peruvian dishes and pisco, the idea came up to put together a light drink for those who want to enjoy with friends without feeling the effects of the alcohol.
