Arundel Cellars & Brewing Co., headquartered at 11727 E. Main Road (Route 20), in North East, is contributing to area coronavirus relief efforts in two ways.
First, the winery/brewery has contributed 300 gallons of red wine for distillation by Conneaut Cellars Winery in Conneaut, Pa. Once the Arundel wine is distilled, it will be turned into hand sanitizer for donation to local first responders, medical centers and retirement homes in North East and the tri-state area.
“We had been talking as a board of directors about what we could do to help the community, and a few moments later, I received an email message from Joel Wolfe, owner of Conneaut Cellars Winery, looking for wine to distill,” explains Lauri Boettcher, partner and winemaker, Arundel Cellars & Brewing Co.
“We loaded 300 gallons of wine for them this morning. The Arundel family is extremely happy to be able to help first responders, medical centers and retirement homes in this way,” she said.
Second, Arundel will be donating $2 for every bottle of wine or 12-pack of High Key sold to-go and on online to the Emergency Financial Assistance Fund recently created by Erie Arts and Culture.
This program is designed to help professionals who are experiencing a disruption to their income and need assistance.
“We chose to donate to this fund because we have had the pleasure of hosting so many local musicians at Arundel,” says Adam Schwindt, marketing director, Arundel Cellars & Brewing Co. “In this way, we hope to help community musicians and others hurt by the impact of the coronavirus on their livelihood.”
A variety of to-go appetizers and delicious entrées are available every day at Arundel; and premium wine and delicious cold crowlers of beer are also being packaged to go.
Those who want to stock their pantries by purchasing a case or more of bottled wine or a 12-pack of High Key online at arundelcellars.com, will receive free shipping through April 13, 2020.
Arundel Cellars & Brewing Co. is a family-owned winery/brewery headquartered in a beautifully restored 19th century barn nestled among the vineyards of scenic North East.
Arundel enjoys the unique position of being the first winery in the area offering both premium wine and craft beer. Together, the Arundel family has more than 100 years of combined grape-growing and wine-making experience.
