Justin P Goodrich and Brian Ensor congratulate Fiona Moes PelThis year we are pleased to be offering two select wines produced by local winery, Chaberton Estate, from Langley, BC.

“Our objective with this Commemorative Wine series is to promote awareness of the Alumni Association while building on the financial support to continue to provide student scholarships as well as programs and services to future alumni” said Nancy Armitage, Manager of Alumni Engagement. “Most importantly, this cultivated partnership also allows us to showcase the talents of UFV alumni artists”.

Justin P. Goodrich, Chairman of the Alumni Association was pleased to announce the winner of this year’s commemorative wine artist competition, Fiona Moes Pel, BFA ’10.  Fiona is a graduate from UFV with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Her artwork is featured on the labels of this year’s wine.

Fiona was born and raised in greater Vancouver, BC where she developed a deep love for trees, mountains and people. Her multimedia approach to creating results in work with both physical and conceptual depth.

The Commemorative wine launch is a highly anticipated annual tradition. This year, in commemoration of UFV’s 40th Birthday a special 2011 Reserve Syrah will be available to celebrate and honour UFV’s 40th Anniversary.

The Commemorative Wine is purchased as graduation gifts, memorabilia, prizes, and for the enjoyment by UFV faculty, staff, students and alumni, and at community gatherings.  The wine can now be purchased through the Alumni Engagement office.
