St. Julian Winery & Distillery Partners with Western Michigan University

Paw Paw, Michigan (November 24, 2020) – St. Julian Winery & Distillery has partnered with the Center for Principled Leadership and Business Strategy program at Western Michigan University to release Bronconess Peach Bubbly just in time for the holiday season.

'Bronconess' is Western Michigan University's student-run wine brand and has previously released three wines: a cabernet sauvignon, a red blend, and a white blend. The Peach Bubbly release marks their first collaboration with St. Julian.

"It's a highly creative initiative for a university," John Braganini, President of St. Julian Winery, said. "The students involved in it are skilled; they're creative; they have ambition. It's community outreach; it's exciting to see our people work with them to come up with a product to eventually have in the marketplace."

The program gives students hands-on experience and raises money that goes toward scholarships for students who embodied what it's like to be a Bronco.

"We are proud to be involved in a program that can not only give students real-world business experience but also gives back in the form of scholarships." said Apollo Braganini, Vice-President of Sales at St. Julian.
