Sit Stay Society Wines | New Varieties to Help Pets in Need

A Purr-fect Paw – Sit Stay Society Wines Launch Three New Varieties to Help Pets in Need

If you’re a pet lover then this new wine is pawfect for you! Sit Stay Society wines has launched three new half bottle varieties – Ruby’s Rosé, Violet’s Grüner Veltliner and Mario’s Mataro Montepulciano. Fifty cents of the sale of each bottle will be donated to PetRescue’s free adoption programs and services to help save the lives of pets in need.

“We’re absolutely thrilled that Sit Stay Society has launched three new varieties to help pets in crisis. Since the range launched last year, it’s been incredibly popular and has raised much-needed funds to help rescue pets find a new, loving home,” said Vickie Davy, PetRescue co-founder and joint CEO.

Vickie said that last year the donations from Sit Stay Society contributed to PetRescue’s national fundraising efforts helping 71,933 pets to be adopted, $731,167 worth of food to be donated directly to rescue organisations, 13 free Jetpets flights to transport pets to their new home and 7,423 calls for help to be resolved.

“With more than 100,000 pets still killed in pounds and shelters in Australia every year, it’s heartening to see that pet lovers who enjoy a nice glass of wine can also be supporting a future where every pet is safe, respected and loved,” she said.

The 375 ml bottles of wine are available exclusively through Dan Murphy’s and BWS.

“Since launching Sit Stay Society last year with Max’s Cabernet Malbec and Toby’s Shiraz Tempranillo, we received such fantastic feedback, we decided to extend the range. Now pet lovers who enjoy a refreshing glass of rosé, a crisp Grüner Veltliner or a delicious glass of Mataro Montepulciano, can help raise further funds to find homes for these pets,” said Pedro Da Costa, head of merchandise, BWS.

Sourced from the Clare Valley in South Australia, a wine region renowned for its award-winning wines, Sit Stay Society pays homage to our best friends: Ruby’s Rosé features a regally bejewelled Moodle label design, Violet’s Grüner Veltliner features a perky Schnauzer and Mario’s Mataro Montepulciano features a dapper Greyhound.

Ruby’s Rosé is full of juicy cherry and strawberry notes with a crisp palate through to a long finish with vibrant acidity.

Violet’s Grüner Veltliner is aromatic with florals, spices and hints of pear with a wet stone backing and a crisp, mouth-watering finish. Mario’s Mataro Montepulciano shows luscious flavours of dark berries balanced by spicy hints of cedary oak and long lingering tannins.

“The half-bottles are great for mid-week drinks and for weekend gatherings with friends when you prefer a glass without opening a full bottle,” said Pedro.

Violet’s Grüner Veltliner and Ruby’s Rosé are available now from Dan Murphy's and BWS. Mario’s Mataro Montepulciano is available at selected BWS stores.
