The Bear

WHAT COULD BE BETTER THAN ENJOYING A NICE GLASS OF WINE? SAVING B.C. WILDLIFE AT THE SAME TIME! Northern Lights Estate Winery has partnered with the BC SPCA and is delighted in announcing the launch of “The Bear”, a new Pinot Gris-style wine with a purpose. The wine is made using surplus apples sourced from local properties, with the goal of deterring bears from entering developed areas in search of leftover or fallen fruit. In addition to protecting local bears, the BC SPCA will receive $2 from each bottle sold to help animals in need across B.C.
