Dry Red Wines
In partnership with Service Dogs of Virginia and Saint Francis Service Dog Foundation, Château Morrisette's Liberty Service Dog Red ®, pays tribute to service dogs and their dedication to enhancing the lives of people with disabilities.
Château Morrisette will contribute a percentage of gross adjusted sales to both non-profit organizations, including a guaranteed minimum first-year donation of $5,000 to each organization. The partnership is a natural fit for a winery known for its dog-themed wines and continues its long-standing commitment to local and regional charities.
“We are thrilled to partner with Service Dogs of Virginia and Saint Francis Service Dog Foundation,” said winery president David Morrisette. “This service dog wine will create more public awareness and provide ongoing financial support that will help people with disabilities lead more independent lives.”

Food and Wine Paring
Pairs well with a wide variety of roasted and grilled meats.
This wine is already near peak when released, although it may age for another several years. Aging is an imprecise art; excessive aging could lead to a negative effect. Ideally, try some every year and enjoy the wine’s journey. Keep at a uniform temperature – 55 degrees is best. It is perfectly normal for a well aged wine to develop minor sediment in the bottle and on the cork surface.
