The Black Dog Blog
Chateau Morrisette is among the oldest and largest wineries in Virginia. Previous to the Covid-19 pandemic we also operated an award-winning restaurant with a 95% recommendation rate on OpenTable. With fresh vintages, flavors, and events at the winery, restaurant, vineyard, and festival field throughout the year, we will keep you abreast of all the great happenings and the people who make up Chateau Morrisette Winery and Restaurant in this blog and through our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest sites.
Chateau Morrisette Partners with Chattanooga Humane Educational Society
Chateau Morrisette wines are now available in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Working through our Distributor, Athens Distributing Chattanooga, we now offer wines through major grocery chain stores and independent wine retailers. In order to get the word out and to show we care about the people and animals in the Chattanooga area, we opted to partner with the Chattanooga Humane Educational Society to bring attention to their efforts to serve the community. Customers can look for our Paws for a Cause bottle tags at stores throughout the region. We hope everyone will give generously to the Chattanooga Humane Educational Society this holiday season.
Upcoming Paws for a Cause events
Chateau Morrisette has agreed to sponsor the Chattanooga Humane Educational Society events throughout the fall and holiday season. The picture above was taken recently at the Paws in the Park event, held Saturday, October 29th. According to Murray Levesque, Chateau Morrisette Tennesee Brand Manager, " People attending the event were thrilled to see Chateau Morrisette involved. Our distinctive dog on the label of our bottles, along with the Paws for a Cause bottle tag, was a natural tie in to HES." While local laws prohibited us from doing tastings in the Park, Chateau Morrisette gave away posters and allowed people to sign up for more information and to register to win prizes.
Later in the season, Chateau Morrisette and the Chattanooga Humane Educational Society will work together on additional events including:
Saturday, December 10 - THE MUTT STRUTT and CHRISTMAS TAIL 5K
Join the Humane Educational Society on Saturday, December 10th for the third annual A Christmas Tail in historic St. Elmo. The annual event is A Christmas themed 5K and 1 mile Mutt Strut benefitting the Humane Educational Society. Funds raised at the event will benefit the shelter’s Special Needs Fund, which provides lifesaving surgery and medication as well as heartworm treatment to animals with treatable injuries and illness, giving them a second chance at a happy home and healthier life. The 5K and Mutt Strut are a fun way to support the shelter’s mission to provide education and outreach to the community, medical services for needy animals, humane investigation, shelter for homeless animals, and strong adoption programs that ensure all adopted animals have safe and loving forever homes.
Sign up to participate at the Chattanooga Humane Educational Society website.
