Summer Wine Series @ Marquis Wine Cellars

Last year Marquis Wine Cellars joined forces with the VPS in raising $500 for the Pride Youth Scholarship program. The team at Marquis Wines are already on the case to sniff out a fabulous selection from their cellars (did we use too many pun's?). Purchase any of the participating summer wines in-store or on-line until August 8th and a portion of sales will be donated to Pride Youth Scholarships.
