Wine and golf: taking it to the pros

Mt. Boucherie Winery has signed on to be the official wine partner of the 2017 Pacific Links Bear Mountain Championship.

An official event on PGA Tour Champions, the Pacific Links Bear Mountain Championship features the world's premier golfers aged 50 and older competing for a US$ 2.5 million purse.

“Pacific Links is proud to extend this established event to support local companies, and we are delighted to be partnering with the outstanding Mt. Boucherie Winery,” said Rudy Anderson, President of Pacific Links International.

Mt. Boucherie will serve up its award winning wines to golf fans and attendees, event sponsors, and players on-site throughout tournament week. Attendees will also be able to visit Mt. Boucherie in the spectator village to learn more about the local winery and sample its wines.
