(Tacoma, WA) - LeMay - AMERICA'S CAR MUSEUM® is proud to announce the recent sponsorship agreement with Hedges Family Estate, and has named Hedges as the Preferred Wine of LeMay - AMERICA'S CAR MUSEUM. The agreement provides that Hedges Estate premium wines will be served at Museum functions, and also provides additional funding over the course of five years, bringing the total donation amount to $100,000.
Hedges Family Estate is a family-owned winery located on the slopes of Red Mountain in Washington, just outside of the Tri-Cities. It was started by Tom and Anne-Marie Hedges who brought their first vintage to market in 1987.
“We’re delighted to have Hedges Family Estate wines as the Preferred Wine for the Museum,” said President and CEO David Madeira. “This is a significant donation and shows how wide and varied the support for the Museum and its efforts are in Washington State. I’m particularly pleased with this commitment as Tom is a true 'car guy' and looks forward to promoting enthusiast events for the Museum in wine country.”
Tom Hedges of Hedges Family Estate expressed his excitement for the partnership. “We’re extremely pleased to be a part of building the new Museum, and quite happy to help the Museum offset membership entertainment costs by having our wine served at events and gatherings for the Museum,” said Mr. Hedges.
The Hedges Family Estate Chateau was dedicated in 1995 and houses a fully functioning winery and tasting room, with views of the Hedges Estate Vineyards. Visitors to the Winery are welcome on Fridays and Saturdays, March through December, or by appointment.
