BuyWine.com has the privilege of introducing what we believe is a wonderful humanitarian act that involves wineries and their proceeds to help out children and schools in Western Kenya.
The Vineyards to Villages Wine Club developed by Global Partners for Development is an enterprise consisting of seven Sonoma wineries that give a 1/3 of their select wine v2v sales to rural school in western Kenya. The donations go to improving and developing the water, sanitation, and clean up projects to better serve the communities in western Kenya. The Sonoma partnered wineries sell their wines, and offer free wine memberships to help with the proceeds.
Details can be found at their website https://gpfd.org/v2v-wines/
