Cost-conscious consumers who want to stretch their dollar further will have a chance to make both a great wine purchase and a charitable donation during the entire month of September, when Viña Montes kicks off their “Angels in Action” fundraiser in support of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CF Foundation). Viña Montes, the world-renowned Chilean winery helmed by winemaker Aurelio Montes, has partnered with its distributors in key markets across the United States to donate 10 percent of proceeds from every bottle sold during the month of September (applies only to participating markets).
Aurelio Montes hosted a ticketed tasting event in Los Angeles on June 7th to announce “Angels in Action” and commence its fundraising efforts; all proceeds from the event were donated to the CF Foundation.
