Purple Heart Wines presents $10,000 donation to the Purple Heart Foundation

Purple Heart Wines (https://www.purpleheartwines.com/), a collaboration between C. Mondavi & Family and the Purple Heart Foundation, an organization which supports veterans in need, is delighted to share the 2017 Check Presentation Celebration to the Purple Heart Foundation (http://purpleheartfoundation.org/), which took place on June 8, 2017. Since the launch of the project in March 2016, Purple Heart Wines has donated $40,000 to the Purple Heart Foundation, which has been used to support U.S. military servicemen and women and their families with services like job-training, counseling and more.

Proprietor Peter Mondavi Jr. and Janice Mondavi came to champion the cause and carry on C. Mondavi & Family's history of supporting veterans and the Purple Heart Wines project. Purple Heart Wines winemaker—and Air Force veteran—John Moynier joined Bill Hutton, Senior Vice President of the Purple Heart Foundation, to present the $10,000 check, the latest installment in a series of donations.

Moynier’s opportunity to work at Purple Heart Wines is a priceless next step for the military veteran and California native who has over 40 years of experience as a winemaker: “Working with a brand that combines my passions for winemaking and military service is the perfect finale to a long career in winemaking in Napa.”
