Sir Paul McCartney's Garland Appeal Chooses Pavona Wines for Fundraising Projects.
MONTEREY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 4, 2002
Pavona Wines, Inc, a Monterey, California producer of handcrafted wines, has been selected to create wines for The Garland Appeal, a cancer research charity endorsed and supported by Sir Paul McCartney, established in memory of his late wife Linda McCartney.
The Garland Appeal is registered in both the United States and the United Kingdom. Its purpose is to benefit breast cancer research and to support the healing power of music.
Pavona Wines will be featured as part of The Garland Appeal Wine Project. "We are extremely honored to be part of such a noble effort," said Richard Kanakaris, President of Pavona Wines. "We believe that Monterey County is one of the finest winegrowing regions in the world and that Pavona is making some of the best wine in Monterey."
One of the wines selected by The Garland Appeal is Pavona's 2000 Chardonnay-Blanc, a unique proprietary wine created by Pavona. The wine is a blend of barrel-fermented Monterey County Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc.
Kanakaris is a devoted Paul McCartney fan with a nearly complete collection of his music, including all of the rarities. "Since Paul McCartney's music has been such a positive influence on my life, and because there are breast cancer survivors in my own family, I can think of no greater personal satisfaction than having Pavona Wines be part of this great endeavor."
