Brock University is teaming up with Dillon's Small Batch Distillers in Beamsville to help frontline workers in Niagara.

The Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute has donated close to 5,000 litres wine, which will help create close to 1,000 bottles of hand sanitizer.

CCOVI Director Debbie Inglis says the institute has to get rid of its old research wine every year in order to make more room in the cellar.

"Thanks to this partnership, we can tell them the wine is being given a second life, as well as keeping our community safe and healthy in the process."
