Here are our favorite charitable vintners and wines.
From complex reds to bright whites, the Vintners Charitable Cooperative offers a large variety of wines to choose from. So how does it work exactly? Go to the website, select your favorite wine, choose your charity and wait for your shipment! It’s that easy. The best part is that 10 percent of each purchase supports your charity. If you become a Wine Club member, 25 percent of your shipment will support your nonprofit organization of choice. Hey, who wouldn't love a regular wine delivery?
Charities that the VCC has helped since its inception in 2009:
"Must love dogs... and wine," should be their tagline. Dog Lover's Wine Club (DLWC), a California-based boutique winery, supports the Humane Society of the United States. Not only are these aromatic wines delivered to your doorstep monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly, each label is a work of art featuring a precious shelter dog. With names like Lassy Red and Big Buddy Syrah, this would make a perfect gift for the dog lover in your life.
This winery works a little differently, but we like it because it's personalized. It's just like when your kids sell candy or wrapping paper to raise funds for school. Choose an organization you'd like to raise funds for, send in a photo, and DLWC will create a custom label based on your image. You and your supporters take and submit orders for the wine, and your group keeps 30 percent of the proceeds for your charity.
There are so many charitable wines that support breast cancer research, that we couldn't choose just one. And since we've all heard that red wine can help reduce your risk of breast cancer, wine for breast cancer research makes total sense to us. Here are a few to tip your glass to:
ONEHOPE Wine donates an astounding 50 percent of its profits to partner charities benefiting a variety of causes and has raised $750,000 to date. They believe that hope is all about making the world better and that wine is a living, breathing commodity that has always helped bring people together. So why not unite the two? The wine is so popular, it's been served at the Grammy's, The American Red Cross Gala, The Sundance Film Festival and more!
