Can’t think of anyone who deserves our thanks more than the people who fight for us to hang out in the US drinking wine.
What to give them? Murphy-Goode’s Homefront Red, a blend of Syrah, Merlot, Petit Sirah, and Zinfandel. I just found out about this yesterday so I unfortunately haven’t tried the wine. I still wanted to do a post because it’s Veteran’s Day and because this is just a cool thing for a winery to do.
For every $15 bottle sold, Murphy-Goode will donate 50 cents to Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit that provides emergency and financial assistance to the families of service members and wounded warriors. In the past two years, Murphy-Goode has reportedly donated more than $100,000 to Operation Homefront and is aiming for a whopping $300,000 total this year, partly through their Homefront Red wine.
Here a few other wineries that support troops:
- HALF of the profits from ONEHOPE wine’s Sweet Red ($18.99) go to Support Our Veterans
- Valor Winery in Livermore, CA was founded by an Iraq War veteran who now employs quite a few vets at the winery
- 10% of all Paso Robles’ McClean Vineyards sales go to the Armed Forces Foundation
- Liberty Creek Wine boost troops’ morale with country holiday music through the “Tunes for Troops” program. Liberty Creek will donate $1 per code to Operation Gratitude, up to $10,000, to include these CDs in the care packages Operation Gratitude sends to service members around the world.
