Gwen Reyer, Local Artist and Friend


This year’s release of My Derby Wife Scarlet Leather Rosé is not only amazing, but is extra special! These grapes from the Washington Street Vineyard in Manson are grown by a dear friend and local Lake Chelan artist, Gwen Reyer. Gwen’s artwork is on display throughout Lake Chelan in restaurants like Fromaggio and Marcela’s Mexican Cocina. We have had the privilege of hosting her as a live painting artist and she co-painted the John Deere Lake Mural on our winery wall with her sister Von.

Not too long ago, we found out Gwen was diagnosed with Stage 4 Bone Marrow cancer and has been in treatment ever since. To learn more about Gwen and her prognosis or should you want to help with medical bills and housing while she is in treatment, you can visit her Fundraising Page Here.

So it is my honor to dedicate this year’s release of our My Derby Wife Scarlet Leather Rosé to the friendship of my dear friend Gwen. We will be donating a portion of the Rosé’s sales to Gwen’s chemotherapy treatment.


Gwen, we hope to see you soon and be a part of your recovery. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
