U50 wine is divine, but only till the end of ’09

Lailey Vineyard Wines, a family business based in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont., has partnered with York University to offer two U50 wines. Both the red and white wines are Vintners Quality Alliance (VQA), which is your assurance that they are made from grapes grown in Ontario. All VQA wines are verified to confirm their origin and tested to ensure they meet a rigorous set of quality standards.

With every bottle purchased, $3.69 will go to the York University Foundation’s York to the Power of 50 campaign to benefit York students. These very special wines will only be available until the end of 2009. They make wonderful gifts. So raise your glass in celebration of York’s past 50 years of achievement and offer a toast to the next 50 years.
