The Terwillegar Riverbend Advisory Council (TRAC) has come up with a very palatable promotion with their own label of "Terwillegar" Malbec wine released this spring, and officially launching on June 8th. They are the first League to enter such a marketing campaign where $5 from every sale goes to support TRAC projects.
Terwillegar wine was showcased at the EFCL Volunteer Appreciation Evening at the Meyer Horowitz Theatre on Tuesday, April 23, 2013. It was a success. Everyone enjoyed the wine.
"Spring Fling" Open House on Saturday, April 20th was a hit. Terwillegar wine, along with many others was showcased. Vines ordered a pallet (56 cases); we are told he will be ordering another pallet in early fall, just in time for the Christmas season.
Everything Cheese has also partnered with TRAC. They have paired three cheeses with the wine. If people buy the cheese, 10% of proceeds go to TRAC.

Dr. N. Terwillegar was a prominent Edmonton physician and surgeon and a member of the Royal Alexandra staff since 1913. A native of Oshawa, Ontario, Dr. Terwillegar graduated from the University of Toronto in 1909. He first practiced in Tofield in 1911, before moving to Edmonton a year later. He was a former member of the Kiwanis Club and was a Mason. For many years he was an active member of the Royal Curling Club. In tribute to the good doctor’s character and influence in his practice, and during his tenures as president of the Edmonton Academy of Medicine and the Alberta Medical Society, the city named a southwestern community Terwillegar Heights in the 1960s. Dr. Terwillegar died in 1948.
