Bruno's Blend Label
of the proceeds from the sale of this
wine will go to Father Bruno Segatta's
outreach from Africa to Italy by donating
money to orphanages and families with
Blend Red $21.55/$23.95 is a
collaboration between Va Piano's Justin
Wylie and Father
Bruno Segatta, a beloved former assistant
dean at Gonzaga University in
Spokane, WA, who ran the Spokane-to-Florence,
Italy study program for 23 years. Based in
Florence, Segatta left the university a few
years ago when the university revamped the
study course, but he is still well known in
WA, OR, and CA, and often returns to marry
former students or visit their families.
For the past few
years, Bruno--as everyone calls him-- has traveled
to Third World countries, offering assistance
by selling his paintings. But living a gypsy
lifestyle helping to feed the poor didn't sell
throngs of artwork.
Enter former student
Jason Wylie, proprietor of Walla Walla's Va
Piano Vineyard. To help Bruno, he created
a unique red wine at a reasonable price point
to promote Bruno’s artwork and raise
money for his charities.
Blend is a full bodied red, packed with intense flavors
of black fruits such as blueberry, blackberry
and plum. Despite its youth this wine is showing
well, if you can wait six months you will be
amazed. Pair well with beef stew, lamb dish,
tenderloin or even a cheeseburger.
Bruno’s Blend is a non-vintage red wine.
Each Blend will showcase a different piece
of art by Father Bruno.
Bruno's Blend will be different with each release.
This first release is composed of 74% Syrah,
18% Cabernet Sauvignon & 9% Merlot, harvested from
Piano Vineyard Estate, Cold Creek & Seven
