Manitou wine to help create Manitou museum

Fans of Manitou Springs can sip their way toward building the Manitou Springs Heritage Center.

D’Vine Wine in the Historic Spa Building, at 934 Manitou Ave. is creating Manitou’s Classic Elixir, a series of custom-labeled and blended wines that will be sold to benefit Historic Manitou Springs, which is attempting to create Heritage Center, a Manitou museum, at 517 Manitou Ave. by October 2011.

The first batch of wine is a 2009 Shiraz. The bottle features a photo of the town clock and a keepsake hang-tag. The next label will be designed by local artist Rene Young Allen.
