Shirley Mays Chardonnay 2011 - This year we pay special tribute to Gina Wylie Paluch, niece of owners Mike and Joanne Dunham. Gina grew up in Walla Walla, and now lives in Phoenix with her husband, Joe, and daughter, Annika. At just 35, Gina was stunned by her diagnosis of Stage III breast cancer, but she immediately began fighting the disease with chemotherapy, radiation, a double mastectomy, and finally, reconstructive surgery. Gina’s positive energy and determination to beat this disease is an inspiration to all. She now lives by the motto that sometimes good things fall apart, so better things can fall together.
