These rich, full bodied wines come from Italy in the Puglia, Sicily, and Veneto regions. Gorilla Wines donates a portion of their proceeds to various gorilla conservation projects in Congo DR, Rwanda and Uganda. Their goal is to help preserve the gorilla population that has been affected due to deforestation, poaching and viral infections.
Drink for a Good Cause
Many small and large batch wineries support a variety of causes. Whether you love animal rescues, land conservation, diversity and equity or research centers (and so much more) there's a wine for that!

Purple Star Wines was founded in 2008 in Washington with a specific vision in mind. Their goal from the beginning was to create wine that is accessible, approachable, and affordable. 15% of their proceeds from sales of Purple Star Wines goes to the Seattle Children's Hospital to lighten the financial burden so many families face.

Wine for That Gifts
Since July 1st, 2020, we at Wine for That have been donating $1-6 for every 1-6 bottle gift you send to water 1st international. This incredible non-profit organization is working to bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. Their efforts move beyond the standard well system and focus on the piping of clean water directly into villages and even directly into homes. This important distinction means that women and girls no longer need to spend vast amounts of time to walk many miles to carry water back to their villages, often freeing them to work and attend school. Directly piped water also means the need to ration carried water for cooking only is no longer necessary. This is a huge game changer as water is now freely available for sanitary use as well. We are happy to have been able to help provide clean water access to 26 people FOR LIFE and counting!
