Briar Rose Winery’s “We Remember” Gets A Voice
Temecula, California. Briar Rose Owner and Winemaker, Les Linkogle wanted to give something special, something meaningful, and something significant to honor the great men and woman who defend our country everyday and every minute without rest. Les, being a Winemaker, crafted the proprietary red wine called “We Remember.” Ten percent of the proceeds from “We Remember” wine goes to the Veterans Research Corporation (http://www.VeteransResearchCorp.org), whose mission is to remember and honor the sacrifices of those who serve. Proceeds will fund world class medical research for veterans of all generations. Although, Les did not stop there…
To further honor the brave men and woman of our Armed Forces, Mr. Linkogle penned the touching and inspiring words to what is now the “We Remember” anthem, sung by Temecula’s celebrated and renowned Sherry Williams.
Sherry co-wrote the music with acclaimed LA musical composer and arranger John Rodby. When asked, was it hard to write the music for “We Remember” based on Mr. Linkogle’s moving words? Ms. Williams replied, “It was challenging, yet very rewarding.” Sherry continued, “It was my task to take these powerful words and put them to a melody in such a way, that the listener would be inspired to personalize their memories… to think of their own family members and loved ones who have served. And to remember the tremendous sacrifices all of our men and woman of service make every day to keep the rest of us safe and secure.”
The first public appearance of Ms. Williams singing “We Remember” will be at the American Hero Wine & Food Benefit honoring triple amputee United States Marine Cpl. Juan Dominguez. This benefit is sponsored by the Gary Sinise Foundation and the Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Run Organization. It will be held at Monte De Oro Winery in Temecula, California on Friday, May 25th, 2012 at 6pm.
