Novelty Hill and Januik Wineries Aim to Help Feed the Hungry
Novelty Hill and Januik are two independent wineries that share a destination tasting room, production facility, and private event venue in the heart of Woodinville Wine Country, and they’re both working to bring fresh meals to those most vulnerable during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Before the pandemic, Novelty Hill-Januik chef Aaron Grund would prepare multi-course meals for private event groups. But with the kitchen’s slowdown, the owners and winemakers wanted to find a way to give back. Throughout the month of April, Novelty Hill-Januik winery will donate 100 freshly prepared meals each Wednesday to Hopelink, a Redmond-based social services agency.
“Our community has been incredibly supportive of us through this difficult time. We wanted to find a way to help our neighbors, and our chef wanted to be a part of that,” said Januik. “At its core, wine is about bringing families together around the table. This is our way of paying it forward.”
To learn more about Hopelink and how to support them, you can visit its website. Novelty Hill and Januik are also still open for wine sales and pick-up from 11am through 5pm daily. You can browse their selections here.
Tinte Cellars Sponsors “Letters to the Elderly” Program
Last week you heard about how Tinte Cellars is keeping a sense of community alive with their virtual events. Well, it has done it again, this time focusing efforts toward the elderly. The Woodinville winery’s co-owners and husband and wife team, Teresa Spellman Gamble and Tim Gamble, are partnering with the Northshore Senior Center to send hand-written love letters to the senior communities served by Northshore in Woodinville, Bothell, Kenmore, Mill Creek, and Kirkland.
“I lost both my parents in January 2018,” said Spellman Gamble, daughter of the late Governor John Spellman. “I’ve been thinking about how hard it must be for our senior citizen community to be alone right now — whether at home, or in a nursing home, or assisted living facility, or in hospice at this time. I am hoping that others will join our Tinte team in taking a few minutes to send some love to the elderly, by reaching out with a handwritten letter or card to those who may be lonely and isolated.”
To participate, pick up a pen or crayon and create a handwritten letter or card to brighten their day. Letters must be legible (large print) and handwritten. Avoid using religious themes, phrases, or quotes Exclude the date. This is a one-way letter exchange, meaning you will not receive a letter back. No reciprocation is part of the beauty of your act of kindness, and the recipients won’t feel burdened by feeling obligated or being unable to respond. Please put your letters in an envelope but do not seal it. Please exercise health-aware precautions, such as cleaning your writing instruments, and wearing gloves and a mask when you are writing your letter.
You can then mail your letters/cards to the following: Corey Lowell, Director of Senior Centers, Northshore Senior Center, 10201 E. Riverside Drive, Bothell, WA 98011. For more information about Tinte Cellars, visit click here.
