Wine to Water – a great idea to help a great cause

We’re very proud to be offering Wine To Water’s newly released wines – an Old Vin Zinfandel and Chardonnay from Lodi.  Wine To Water started as an idea, a simple passion to help people in need. Doc Hendley, President/Founder, first learned about the global water crisis in 2003 while bartending in Raleigh, NC.

“When the idea came to me to start Wine To Water the only real world experience I had was tending
bar. I dreamed of building an organization that fought water related death and disease using completely different methods than anyone else. So I started raising money to fight this water epidemic the best way I knew how, by pouring wine and playing music.”

Doc held the first fundraiser in January 2004. Since then, Wine To Water has grown into an established 501(c)(3) aid organization. Fundraising efforts have expanded to include foundations, clubs, organizations, homes, churches and schools. However, wine tastings continue to be a huge part of the organization. Communities unite for a good cause allowing the age old miracle to be reversed; the fortunate people of today’s society are able to give back to those in need, turning “Wine To Water.”

You can support this cause by your purchase of Wine to Water wines simply to enjoy on your own or even to host a benefit wine tasting in your own community.   Click HERE for more info.
