Remember when I told you I got to judge a rescue dog wine label contest for Raffaldini? Well, the unveiling ceremony to announce the winner was last Saturday! So many cute pups entered!!
And this was the winner!! MUNSON!!! I got to meet him before the unveiling and have some one-on-one time to get all the face smooshing, pup kisses, and pets I wanted. 🙂
I was seriously obsessed with him–so cute and sweet. Plus, he looked so much like Maizey’s best friend Annie the bulldog! Munson was in pretty rough shape when he was rescued, but now he’s a healthy happy boy and has two bulldog sisters. He has great humans that take care of him and take him to work everyday too.
The other judge was a local veterinarian (wish I could remember her name! She was lovely). And that’s Jay Raffaldini on the left, the owner of the beautiful vineyard.
We all said a few words and then Jay let Munson make his grand entrance to introduce him as the winner to the crowd.
When Munson came down the stairs when they announced him, the crowd started cracking up. Soooo slow. I LOVE bulldogs. hahahhaa.
I love the wine bottle with his picture on it. I have a couple on my wine rack now. You can buy the Pino Vino wine online; it’s a special bottling of their Sangiovese Reserve, which is my favorite Raffaldini wine. And a portion of the proceeds benefit local animal shelters and organizations.
Thank you so much to Raffaldini for letting me be a part of such a wonderful event. I was so honored to be involved and am so grateful for what Raffaldini does for this cause.
John and I stuck around afterwards and did a wine tasting and enjoyed the beautiful weather and view. I wish we had taken a picnic. It was a perfect day to be at the vineyard.
We also met a few other dog lovers, including this guy who had two boxers! He got tattoos of their cute faces when they passed.
It was a pretty perfect day.
Thank you again Raffaldini and co.! And congrats Munson! Come visit anytime. 🙂 I’m sure Maizey will be nice (because she will think you are Annie. 😉 )
