CREDITON wine merchant, Bruce Evans has taken delivery of three new Ukrainian wines at the Grape and Grain in Crediton.
Bruce said: “I am very excited with the new wines, an Albarino, a Cabernet and the Odessa Black grape.
“The wines are from Southern Ukraine and have understandably taken some time to arrive.
“They were taken out of Ukraine by Land Rover, carried across broken bridges and into Hungary to be shipped to the UK.”
The Ace Cabernet is made by one of Ukrainian’s best tennis players, Sergiy Stakhovsky, who decided to engage in winemaking at the end of 2015 after being exposed to the wine culture while competing. Sergiy is now fighting on the frontline in Ukraine.
Bruce will donate all his profits from the sale of the three wines to the Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal.
He added: “The only money not going to a good cause is the taxman’s cut.”
Bruce is also stocking Utopian lager, from Utopian Brewing at Bow, in blue and yellow cans to represent the Ukrainian flag. He will also be donating £5 profit from every case to the appeal.
Customers can also help to support Ukraine by buying one or more of the three wines or the two lagers available at the high street wine merchants.
