On Thursday, October 22, 2020, our precious Miss Olivia Anne Baessler, only weeks away from her 5th birthday, passed away suddenly. In Olivia's short life she accomplished so many incredible things that have deeply impacted everyone that knew her, or knew of her. Her story continues to be inspiring for hundreds of families across Canada.
"Olivia the Brave" fundraiser was started to honour Olivia's beautiful spirit and give back to organizations and initiatives that aid families with children in need of special medical attention. This label features a theme of green hearts and sunshine. Olivia brought a beam of brightness with her wherever she went. Green was her favorite color and hearts quickly became a signature for Olivia.
This 2020 Syrah was harvested the day Olivia joined the angels. The team at Corcelettes Winery has carefully tended to this solo barrel of Syrah named "Olivia" from that very day.
We hope you join us in enjoying this wine and give cheers to such a beautiful spirit while raising funds for the Brandon Hospital Foundation.
100% of proceeds will be donated to the Brandon Regional Health Centre Foundation.

October 22nd of 2022, marks two years since Olivia Anne Baessler
joined the angels. On the day Olivia took her journey, the team at
Corcelettes Winery were commencing the harvest of this 2020 Syrah.
When the news broke Olivia would bare her halo, the tools were
dropped and just enough syrah had been picked to fill this tribute
In honour of miss Olivia, we are humbled to share the opportunity to
take home a special collector wine while contributing to a fundraising
campaign aimed at assisting the Brandon Region Health Centre
Foundation. 100% of proceeds to be donated.
Naturally, this precious single barrel was treasured and treated with
the utmost of care. Although capturing this sad moment was not the
intent of the wine, marking this moment in memory was. Being able to
hold a tribute series of this bold and expressive varietal, baring the now
infamous sun-burst heart, is a great way to keep Olivia with us. Age
this wine, enjoy it now, the choice is yours - no doubt Olivia’s spirit will
be stoked the moment the cork is pulled or the wine simply viewed on
your library rack.
Only 200 of these special bottles were crafted. Don’t miss the
opportunity to secure this precious memory while contributing to
the Brandon Regional Health Centre Foundation and their work in
assisting future kids and their families with challenging starts.
200 bottles lovingly crafted from one single barrel.
