Makala Ashmar was only 27 years old when she was diagnosed with cancer. Her oncology team nominated her for a Travel Respite through FPS that forever changed her life. She spent the rest of her years paying kindness forward, and before her passing in September 2020, she set in motion a legacy of gratitude. Working with FPS and The Wine Foundry in Napa California, she created her own wine blend that will forever give others a break from cancer.
The week prior to Makala’s passing, she met with the winemaker and discussed the blend that would excite her palate. Makala’s white wine is a blend of Gewürztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Viognier, and Chardonnay. This wine is the product of her dream and we think of Makala with every sip.
100% of the proceeds from Makala’s blend are donated by The Wine Foundry and its team to support the FPS mission of respite for families facing cancer. There are also a few other blends under the Makala label to purchase. A portion of proceeds from these wines are donated to FPS by The Wine Foundry.
Please spread the word and invite other friends and family to enjoy Makala’s wine. You’ll help us change lives! Thank you to the Wine Foundry for producing and offering these wines for purchase*. We are grateful for their commitment to the FPS
