Why MND? Why not? Our family has a personal connection with this disease.
Our dear friend, mate, surfing buddy and god father to one of our children helped us plant all of the vines at Rascals Corner. A great friend to many, Big Dave was sadly consumed and taken by MND.
Our wines are just like Big Dave – honest, not too complex and put together for fun times and laughter with special friends and family. Our wines promise to deliver excellent wine value without the pretence.
Inspired by many higher level corporate philanthropists and wanting to “give back’ to community in some way, we believe that donating part proceeds from every sale towards finding a cure for MND is a great way to honour Big Dave’s legacy and hopefully one day sparing others and their families from this insidious disease.
Dave’s personal totem became the red tailed cockatoo and these ‘honky nut’ chewing Rascals roost on our farm. Some of our wine labels and motifs feature the red tailed feather from these guys.
Note: Special acknowledgement to Neale Daniher for using his profile via the FightMND movement to bring community awareness to the fore regarding MND. A great and selfless man and he and his family are Australians of the year in our book.
