This is Horace, Mary's Personal Rascal
Horace comes to the winery every day. Apart from accepting pats from cellar door visitors and slipping over to the our neighbour’s cellar door for a cheese platter each day, Horace doesn’t leave Mary’s side. Mary reckons he saves her a lot of money on therapist bills – after all he listens endlessly regardless of what’s said, he doesn’t talk back and he gives great hugs. His only vice is that he may one day dig his own grave with his teeth (yes no snack is off limits).
Animals give so much to us – they comfort us, provide therapy, make us laugh, guard our homes, road test our medicines, do our work and even end up on our plate. We often take them for granted.
This month we want to give something back; for the month August for every bottle of 'The Rascal' you purchase we are donating 15% of sales to Animals Australia.
Animals Australia's vision is a world where all animals are treated with compassion and respect and are free from cruelty. They believe that we can create a kinder world for all by fostering respect for animals and that our treatment of animals reflects who we are as individuals and as a society.
Order yourselve a bottle (or 12!) of 'The Rascal' Shiraz and help us support this worthy cause.
