To be honest, there are better “pink” wines I could recommend you drink (namely, any rosé). But every year for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Sutter Home does Capsules for Hope. When you send in your capsule or twist-off cap receipt, they’ll donate a dollar to City of Hope to help find a cure.
This year, they came out with a Bubbly Pink Moscato. Moscato is huge these days – most of the people who tag me on Instagram are drinking it every night. I’m not into most sweet wines before or during dinner. But with dessert, a nice Mosacto d’Asti is awesome. And I’ll be totally honest here, this Sutter Home Bubbly Pink Moscato wasn’t vilely sweet and could even be pretty good with strawberry shortcake or something. That kind of made me happy. It’s $6, people.
A bunch of other wineries do really great things to raise money for breast cancer research, too. All year long in fact, ONEHOPE wine donates 50% of the profits from their Chardonnay to breast cancer research.
And during September and October, Fat Bastard will donate 25 cents for every bottle sold in restaurants and stores, up to $75,000 (10th year they’re doing this).
Last, Domaine Chandon is donating $1 for each bottle of Chandon Rosé or Reserve Pinot Noir Rosé sold as well as for every “like” on their Facebook page.
So let’s get some pink on this month. If NFL players can do it, so can grapefriend!
