DIVA Wine by Legends Estates Winery

Wine, art and charity. How’s that for an intoxicating combination? Family-run Legends Estates Winery donates the proceeds from each bottle of DIVA wine sold to Women’s Place of South Niagara, which offers support, counselling and safe shelter for abused women and children within the region. BeLuxe artist Bev Hogue created two labels for DIVA white (semillon-sauvignon blanc) and DIVA red (malbec-merlot), featuring her cool blue girls on a yellow and pink background respectively. The text on the bottle states that Hogue’s work “represents courage and the strength of the female spirit, embodied by her signature depiction of blue women.” The classic label is also available for this DIVA wine (white, rosé and red), a watermark of the deity Artemis as a symbol of protection for women and children. The wine can be purchased for $14.95 at the LCBO, at the Beamsville, Ont. winery store, or online by emailing your order via the web site and they will ship it to you if law permits. — K.B.
