Introducing: The 2011 Boston Red Sox Lineup Of Charity Wines

images.jpgStarting Pitchers  Jon Lester  and  Clay Buchholz  are the Boston Red Sox players featured in this year’s lineup of  CHARITY WINES.

Other than both men being the best RED SOX starting pitchers in the 2010 season, they have both had the rare opportunity to be in the spotlight for pitching No-Hitters for their team at the starts of their professional careers. Buchholz and Lester are stellar athletes and wonderful representatives of their team, as well as the new 2011 line of CHARITY WINES brought to us by Andrew Graff’s Winchendon Massachusetts-based Longball Cellars/VinLozano Imports.
To-date, 30+ professional athletes have teamed-up to raise over 1.6 million dollars in funds through Charity Wines. And  100% of the proceeds on the sale of each bottle of the 2011 Red Sox wines goes to charity. Each player has chosen a charity that is of utmost importance to them. 
Clay Buchholz has chosen the Jimmy Fund to be the recipient of all funds from the sales of the new  ChardonClay  California wine. Clay is the co-captain of the Jimmy Fund that fights against cancer at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.  (www.jimmyfund.org)
Jon Lester, a recent cancer survivor, has chosen the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center to be the recipient of all funds from the sales of the new  CabernAce  California wine.

The wines will be available in May 2011 and sell for approximately  $14 a bottle. You may contact  www.charitywines.com  for more information and a retailer near you.
The gorgeous illustration on the wine labels are done by Jonathan Banchick (www.banchickillustration.com)  and the beautiful player photography on the labels is done by Kelly O’Connor  (www.sittingstill.net).
Please go out and grab a few bottles of each, they’re delicious and they really do make a real difference. Salute’

Vino and Baseball (A Perfect Match)



soxwines-1.jpgWinter just turned to Spring, and our senses are alive with all the color and activity that Spring brings to us. Time to put away the heavy down coats, scarves, knit hats, snow boots and gloves….and turn our attention to the fun things that mean Springtime.

Warm days of sunshine and breezes approach us, as do outdoor celebrations…like ballgames, barbecues, and other fun warm weather gatherings. Never show up empty-handed when paying a visit….bring the perfect gift, a bottle or two of the newly-created wines from Charity Wines (www.charitywines.com) in either a light fruity ZinfandEllsbury (Zinfandel)  or  a  fuller robust  CHARDON-K (Chardonnay).

The ZinfandEllsbury is named for our young amazing Boston Red Outfielder and Base-Stealer  JACOBY ELLSBURY  and  proceeds from the sale of this fine California wine will go to these three chosen charities:  the Navajo Relief Fund,  Project Bread,  and the  Ellsbury Read Project.  

The Ace’s  CHARDON-K  is named in honor of our Pitcher Extraordinaire  JOSH BECKETT  and proceeds from the sale of this fine California wine will go to the  Josh Beckett Foundation.

These delicious, and very affordable wines will retail for $ 14.00  per bottle, and will be available in  MAY 2010  at your local wine distributor or  liquor store.

Share a glass with friends at any summer celebration, to cap-off a victory, or while enjoying a picnic with cheese and fruit. Always a great addition to your collection!
