We are pleased to introduce Henry, the first K9 member of the Vail ski patrol team. As a pioneer of the Vail Avalanche Rescue Dog Program, Henry is affectionately known as “The Dogfather.” Born in 2007 in Port Huron Michigan, Henry is now the elder statesman of the K9 ski patrollers and aging like a fine wine.
Our Henry is a full bodied red wine blend. The blend of the sun ripened grapes produce flavors of plum, black cherries and red raspberries. By aging Henry’s wine in French Oak barrels, the natural spices of cinnamon and black pepper are enhanced, creating balance and complexity. You’ll find that Henry’s wine is a perfect complement to cusine such as beef tenderloin…Henry’s favorite food!
On most days during the ski season, you can find Henry on top of Vail Mountain training to keep his skills sharp and spreading good will and cheer to visitors from all over the world.
A portion of the proceeds from sales of Henry will go to support the Vail Avalanche Rescue Dogs, Colorado Rapid Avalanche Deployment Program and volunteer based search and rescue iniatives.
