Wine to Water

27th Nov 2018 @ 12:21 by Gretchen

What if drinking wine could improve drinking water? Now it can! We are thrilled to create a partnership with Wine to Water, a charity dedicated to bringing sustainable clean water solutions to villages around the world. The organization was started by Doc Hendley, a bartender from North Carolina who joined the fight to make clean water accessible to everyone in the world.

Hendley's book, Wine to Water, chronicles the history of the organization and his experience bringing safe drinking water to villagers in Darfur. Water-related diseases claim more than 3.5 million lives each year, with children being especially vulnerable. Water wells built, repaired, and maintained locally decrease the time spent fetching clean water, which takes hours each day for women and children. This causes fewer work hours and missed school time. These projects increase economic self-sufficiency, education, health, dignity, and justice. We are proud to be a supporter.

Our feature wine for this partnership is our 2013 Estate Dry Sparkling Gew├╝rztraminer, with $4 of each bottle donated directly to Wine to Water. Purchase of a case funds the cost of a new water filter for a family! You can purchase the 2013 Gew├╝rzt here :

Happy Giving Tuesday!
