Donation Requests

Dear Friends of Haight Brown Vineyard,
I am posting this note re donation requests of the vineyard. HBV is a small CT farm winery. The number of donation requests we are currently receiving is averaging 7-10/week.Though all of the causes are worthy, we are not in a position to respond let alone give to that many causes.  Going forward we are adopting the following policy- the vineyard will consider donations for Litchfield causes, agriculture related causes, causes we have historically supported and charities near and dear to our employees. I apologize that we cannot do more but our size does not permit us to respond to daily contribution requests and calls let alone financially fund that many donations. Thank you for your understanding. 

Sincerely, Amy Senew

Our Winemaker

Charl van Schalkwyk grew up in the highlands of the Eastern Cape of South Africa. He spent most of his summer's in the wine country of the Western Cape, where he developed an interest for fine wines as well as a love and passion for viticulture. After backpacking through Europe for two years, he returned to Stelenbosch, South Africa to continue his education in Viticulture and complete his post-graduate studies in Cellar Technology at Elsenburg Agricultural College. His career and love for wine has brought him to several award-winning wineries around the globe, including South Africa, California and now Connecticut.
