Auburn Homes & Services Wine

Auburn wine

Jesus turned the water into good wine. In turn, Auburn Homes & Services has some of its own good wine to offer—Chardonnay, Cabernet Savignon, Merlot, and California Champagne to be exact. Special bottles of Auburn Homes & Services wines are available for purchase at the Dolce Vita Wine Shop in Chaska (located on the corner of Chaska Blvd. & Hwy. 41). The cost is $15 per bottle. Proceeds from the purchases go to benefit Auburn Homes & Services.

According to Auburn Manor Administrator Wayne Ward, “Auburn Homes & Services Wines are excellent California wines that will complement any meal.”

Auburn Homes & Services wants to thank Dolce Vita Wine Shop for partnering with us in this offer.
