Benzinger Winery Offers a CCI Cycling Jersey

Benziger Family Winery is launching a 2010 limited edition Benziger/ Canine Companions for Independence® Bicycling Jersey, the first in a campaign that will contribute $10 from every sale to Canine Companions for Independence®(CCI). CCI provides highly-trained assistance dogs for children and adults with disabilities, free of charge, transforming the lives of people with disabilities. The jersey is priced at $115.

The jersey is available in the Benziger Family Winery tasting room and online (www.benziger.com). Inspired by the new Benziger Family Winery label, the design on the front and back of the jersey symbolically depicts the four archetypal elements (Earth, Water, Air and Fire) through ancient Greek symbols. These symbols are displayed against a vortex, representing the rhythms of nature in every vintage. The Tribute logo, along with a small pattern of the elements is located on the side panels of the jersey, and the new Signaterra series logo is prominently displayed on the shoulder and sleeve. The background is a simple water drop pattern, signifying the natural resource on which the vines are so dependent and the natural capital for which Benziger Family Winery takes great strides to conserve and recycle. The blue and yellow Canine Companions for Independence® logo, which is prominently featured near bottom of each the jersey’s sleeves, aims to spread awareness of the work CCI does to enhance the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to ensure quality partnerships. Designed by premier cycling apparel company, Primal Wear, the jersey is made with 100% Speed-Pro advanced moisture transfer fabric – a plaited double-knit fabric that forces moisture away from the body – the unisex design sports a raglan cut sleeve with a 3/4 hidden front zipper and 3 rear pockets.

The Sonoma Valley is as well known for its great bicycling routes as it is for its great wines. Cycling enthusiasts regularly cruise past Benziger Family Winery 85-acre estate vineyard located on the road to Jack London State Park and many of the Benziger family, including Founder and Estate Winemaker, Mike Benziger, are cyclists.
