A Note of Thanks from Ben and Kimberly Peacock of Tousey Winery
Ben and Kimberly Peacock of Tousey Winery are private people. When it comes to promoting or being proud of their business, there's no question, they will do what they need to do to produce and market their very fine wines.
However, this past Thanksgiving holiday season, the Peacocks were dealt a difficult hand when Ben was diagnosed with a difficult health issue. But Tousey Winery has engendered many fans and friends within the wine community from throughout the Hudson Valley to the Finger Lakes, Long Island, and beyond. There is a whole community who supports them.
Like many serious illnesses in our country today, hospital care is expensive, as were babysitting fees, and a real need for hands on work at their winery. Their finances were stretched. Without Ben and Kimberly's knowledge, some friends set up a platform wherein friends and family could lend support of financial means.
Ben and Kimberly had no knowledge of this fund until well after it was well established and well funded. Being incredibly private regarding their personal lives, they were both grateful and a little embarrassed. Below is a note from Kimberly and Ben wishing and thanking their friends for all the support they receive of varying kinds.
