A Letter from Clay
and Carrie Mauritson

Brady and Clay
Our oldest son Brady was diagnosed with Down Syndrome in September, 2010 at the age of 2 ½. The diagnosis was emotionally devastating for our family. At the time, it felt as if every parent’s worst fears had come true. Little did we know what an incredible blessing this diagnosis would be and how it would profoundly change our lives.

That being said, I don’t know how we would have made it through those first couple of months without the tremendous support of the Down Syndrome Association, North Bay (DSANB). They provided desperately needed educational resources, medical recommendations, and emotional support.

Unfortunately, our story is not unique; the DSANB provides these resources to countless families in and around Sonoma County. Their mission is simple: To promote advocacy, raise awareness, further educational pursuits, and support research for people with Down Syndrome and their families.

While the group is derived of some of the most caring, passionate, and dedicated people I have ever met, they can only do so much with limited funds and the problem is getting worse: what little Federal and State funding that has been available is in jeopardy due to the current fiscal climate and economic crisis.

My wife and I are committed to raising awareness and advocating for all people with disabilities, especially those with Down Syndrome. Please join us for this fantastic Zinfandel event and help us raise money for an amazing cause. We hope to see you there.

—Clay and Carrie Mauritson
 
What is Down Syndrome?

Down Syndrome is a genetic condition that causes delays in physical and intellectual development. It occurs in one in every 691 live births. Individuals with Down Syndrome have 47 chromosomes instead of the usual 46. In most people with Down Syndrome, there is an extra copy of Chromosome 21 (also called trisomy 21 because there are three copies of this chromosome instead of two), which changes the body and brain’s normal development.

Down Syndrome is the most frequently occurring chromosomal disorder. It is not related to race, nationality, religion or socioeconomic status. The most important fact to know is that very little separates individuals with Down Syndrome from those without it.

For more information on Down Syndrome, please visit The National Association for Down Syndrome.

FOURTH ANNUAL PROJECT ZIN RECAP

On August 16th, Winemaker Clay Mauritson and Chef Charlie Palmer hosted the Fourth Annual Project Zin at Hotel Healdsburg. This sold-out wine event gathered some of the most sought after Zinfandels paired with decadent bites from Chef Palmer and other local Sonoma County chefs.

The event featured 21 incredible zinfandels from wineries including Carlisle, Robert Biale, Outpost, Ridge, Turley and Mauritson. Wines were paired alongside tastings of Painted Hills filet “Prime Rib Dinner,” with, green peppercorn, Zinfandel au jus, smoked baked potato mousseline, caramelized onion biscuit and creamed heirloom spinach from Charlie Palmer and Dustin Valette. Many local restaurants joined in on the fun, including Mateo’s Cocina Latina who offered Yucatan style beef tartare with falsa galleta; Jimtown Store who served Zinfandel braised beef tacos with horseradish crema and onion jam; and Zin’s beef grillades with Falls Mill corn grits.

In addition to the unparalleled food and wine, we were able to raise money for one very important organization - the Down Syndrome Association, North Bay Learn more here. We are thrilled to announce that our Fourth Annual Project Zin raised over $100,000 for the DSANB! We could not have done this without the support and dedication from our Project Zin Team, Hotel Healdsburg and Dry Creek Kitchen, Mauritson Family Winery staff, volunteers as well as all the support from all of our participating wineries, restaurants and local businesses.
