Opt to Help Veterans with Your Next Glass of Wine

Opt to Help Veterans with Your Next Glass of Wine

Americans love a good glass of wine. In fact, according to the Wine Institute, there were 913 million gallons of wine consumed in the country last year. The good news for those who love their wine and their country is that they can help support the nation’s veterans by purchasing wine that gives back to them. Some wine stores do carry options that help to support veteran missions.

“Not all wine shops are created equal, so if you want to support veterans it is important to seek out and go to those that carry the wine varieties that give proceeds to help veterans,” explains Ken Falke, chairman and founder of Boulder Crest Retreat. “If you are a wine drinker, it’s a small change you can make that will go a long way toward helping those who have helped our country.”
