Tis that season once again when many begin to think about good will and charity towards others. Though we should be thinking about such matters all year round, I fully support all such efforts during this season. And now Twitter Taste Live is hosting their first charitable event, Drink Charitably.
The event will be held on November 21, starting at 8pm. It is a joint venture between Humanitas Wines, Lenndevours (a prominent NY wine blogger), Drink Charitably, and Twitter Moms. Humanitas Wines is a unique winery in that it makes and sells wine, then giving the profits to charity. They seek to address three specific problems: hunger, affordable housing and illiteracy. Their primary charities are America's Second Harvest, Habitat for Humanity and Reading is Fundamental. They give to the regional chapters in the communities where the wine is sold.
For the Twitter Taste Live event, there will be four wines from Humanita, including:
2006 Sauvignon Blanc (Monterey)
2007 Chardonnay "Oak Free" (Monterey)
2006 Cabernet Sauvignon (Paso Robles)
2006 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast)
All selections will be sold directly through their website and 100% of the profits will go to charity. The first three can be purchased and shipped as a 3-bottle pack directly from the winery for just $45. Buy them today. The Pinot Noir can also be bought directly from Humanitas as well for $40. Buy it today. It is all for good causes so I hope you participate.
If you cannot buy the wines, you can also stop by Bin Ends on November 21 as they may be sampling a few bottles of the wine.
