Amadio Wines from the Adelaide Hills has joined forces with the McGrath Foundation to launch the new Amadio Biljana Sparkling Brut on 7th October 2010.
This unique friendship has been formed to raise money for McGrath Foundation, with $2 from every Amadio Biljana Sparkling Brut sold helping to increase breast awareness in young women as well as funding McGrath Breast Care Nurses right across Australia.
‘Like so many families, ours too has been touched by breast cancer. Having shared this experience, I raise a toast to those who have learned to ‘live in the moment’. Every purchase of ‘Biljana’ (Bil-ya-na) raises funds for the McGrath Foundation,’ said Danniel Amadio, Managing Director and Vintner of Amadio Wines.
Named ‘Biljana’ after Danniel’s wife, the sparkling wine is both a tribute to her strength and a glass raised in celebration to those whose lives’ have also been touched by cancer.
‘The McGrath Foundation philosophy of ‘together we can make a difference’, was the perfect trigger to develop this special sparkling wine that will not only assist with raising money for a great cause, but hopefully help put a bit of sparkle back into people’s lives,’ Amadio said.
The McGrath Foundation’s Tracy Bevan has welcomed this initiative, ‘We’re thrilled to develop such a fun and exciting friendship with Amadio Wines. I can’t think of a better way to raise a toast as well as raising money for the Foundation at the same time’ she said.
This lively and citrusy sparking with soft moussey bubbles has a recommended retail price of $18 per bottle, with Amadio Biljana Sparkling Brut is available from the Amadio Cellar Door and via independent stores throughout Australia.
Amadio Wines are the official wine suppliers of the 2010 JB Were Australian Masters and to mark the release, the Amadio Biljana Sparkling Brut will be served exclusively throughout all corporate hospitality tents and public bars, at what is arguably the most prestigious golfing event in Australia, with sporting world number one Tiger Woods.
