He might have to use both hands to hold a wine glass, but that doesn’t stop wine-enthusiast Bob Delf from enjoying a glass of his favorite red or white. Bob, who was diagnosed with essential tremor in 2007, is the founder of Northwest Cellars. The company was started in 2004 with the mission to provide personalized wine labels for quality wines at reasonable prices.
Wine is in Bob’s blood, so to speak. His family has been a wine importer and distributor for more than 20 years in his native Canada. About 10 years ago, someone gave him a private-labeled bottle of wine as a corporate gift. The wine was so disgusting it prompted Bob to start his own winery to “do a better job”. Delf decided to pair his love of wine with his charitable nature to help those in the ET community.
Northwest Cellars is partnering with the IETF to raise money for essential tremor research. The IETF has designed a special, limited-edition wine label that can be attached to any of the award-winning reds and whites Northwest Cellars has to offer, and they will donate 40 percent of the proceeds to support ET research.
“I want to do what I can to further research,” Delf says. When asked what inspires him to give such a generous amount of the sales to the IETF, Delf responds “I don’t think it is worth doing unless we can raise a substantial amount of money.”
A commitment to finding better treatments and a cure for essential tremor drives Delf. He also appreciates the need to provide inspiration and fellowship among those living with ET. He will be hosting a special wine tasting fundraiser for the IETF in June.
