This delicious blend of Estate Mourvedre, Barbera and Cabernet Franc has been made in honor of Pat Ornellas, fondly known to many as Quinny, who lost his battle with ALS. He was a passionate high energy man with a zest for life, but above all else — he was a fighter. The Lord put it on our hearts to continue the fight against ALS, to raise awareness and increase funding to fight this horrific disease.
The three sunflowers on our label are the official symbols of HOPE for those battling ALS!

About the Beat ALS Country Fest Event
Campos Family Vineyards and the ALS Association Greater Sacramento Chapter launched a new Give Back Series blend in memory of Campos family friend, Patrick “Quinny” Ornellas, who lost his battle with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, ten years ago. It is our shared hope to hold this annual event to raise awareness and support for families living with ALS across Northern California. ALS is a terminal, neurodegenerative disease with no known cause or cure. Veterans are twice as likely to be diagnosed with ALS. The average lifespan after diagnosis is 2-5 years. Every 90 minutes someone is diagnosed with ALS, and every 90 minutes someone loses their battle with ALS. The ALS Association is the only nonprofit dedicated to fighting ALS on every front, and your support of events like Country Fest to Beat ALS is vital to fulfilling their mission. Through the services and compassionate care ALS provides, the policies they advocate for, and the global research they fund, they will fulfill their vision of a world without ALS.
