Sit Stay Society Wines latest drop to help pets in need

This ‘Pawsome’ Wine Just Raised $150,000 for Pets in Need!

Give this wine a round of ‘apaws’! Sit Stay Society Wines has now raised an incredible $150,000 for PetRescue and is celebrating with the launch of a new white wine – Gracie’s Gewürztraminer Riesling – to add to this popular 375ml range. Fifty cents from every bottle sold in the range is donated to PetRescue’s adoption programs and services, working towards a future where every pet is safe, respected and loved.

“We are incredibly grateful to all the wine and pet lovers who have helped achieve this amazing milestone donation. It has made a significant contribution to PetRescue’s programs and last year helped 51,899 rescue pets find new, loving homes,” said Vickie Davy, PetRescue Founder Director.

Vickie said that the donation from Sit Stay Society Wines had contributed to PetRescue’s national large-scale 2020-2021 donation program for pets in need, including, $670,721.57 worth of free pet food donated to rescue organisations, 200,601 dog coats to keep rescue pets warm and enabling upgrades to the PetRescue adoption platform to make it quick and easy to match pets with new families.

“It is wonderful that Sit Stay Society has now launched a new addition to this much-loved range featuring one of Australia’s most popular breeds, a Staffy, on the label. 

Staffies and Staffy mixes are by nature loyal and fun, and just like a delicious drop of Gewürztraminer Riesling, which features a blend of different grape varieties, they are often a blend of breeds which makes them a great, versatile pet that suits a wide range of homes and lifestyles,” said Vickie.

She said that with more people spending time at home due to the pandemic, there had been an 8.5 per cent jump in visitors to the website last year with 6,258,031 pet lovers visiting the PetRescue adoption platform and 275,788 enquiries made for pets available for adoption – one enquiry every two minutes.

“It’s fantastic that so many people are looking for a rescue pet to love and welcome into their home. It’s incredibly rewarding to be able to help facilitate the adoption process smoothly and easily to create homes for pets who need them, thanks to the generous contributions made by Sit Stay Society Wines.”

Samantha Hughes is one such happy owner. She adopted Arlo, a gorgeous female Staffie, via PetRescue four years ago. She says she was looking for a loving companion with lots of character.

“Arlo ticked all the boxes. I saw her on the PetRescue site and I thought she was the cutest thing in the world. Her photo melted all of our hearts. She’s been my best friend ever since. In hard times and good times, she has always been there to cry on or dance with. She just makes every day brighter. She’s helped me realise how much I love dogs and how much I want to continue to help more pets in need.”

The addition of Gracie’s Gewürztraminer Riesling to the Sit Stay Society range now means there are six delicious varieties to choose from: Ruby’s Rosé, Violet’s Grüner Veltliner, Mario’s Mataro Montepulciano, Max’s Cabernet Malbec and Toby’s Shiraz Tempranillo. The 375mL bottles are available exclusively through Dan Murphy's and BWS.

Sourced from the picturesque Clare Valley in South Australia, a wine region renowned for its award-winning wines, Sit Stay Society’s label designs pay homage to our doggy friends: Toby’s Shiraz Tempranillo is adorned by an illustration of a French Bulldog, Max’s Cabernet Malbec has a beautiful King Charles Cavalier, Ruby’s Rosé features a regally bejewelled Moodle, Violet’s Grüner Veltliner features a perky Schnauzer and Mario’s Mataro Montepulciano features a dapper Greyhound.

“We are very excited to introduce a new addition to 5 existing wines with Gracie’s Gewürztraminer Riesling label featuring a happy Staffordshire Terrier! The blend of wine is the perfect balance between dry and crisp with the added layer of Gewürztraminer forming a lush, more rich texture.
