5 Reasons to Choose the BCR Charity Wine for Your Holiday Meals

5 Reasons to Choose the BCR Charity Wine for Your Holiday Meals

Boulder Crest Retreat for Military and Veteran Wellness benefits when people choose the BCR wine from Tackitt Family Vineyards

 

Americans love to drink wine, especially with their holiday meals. In fact, the Wine Institute reports that last year, wine consumption in the U.S. reached 893 million gallons, which equals around 2.8 gallons per resident. While many people are unsure which kind of wine to serve with their holiday meals, their choice may be easier to make if they know the purchase helps to provide support to a charity.

“It’s a great combination that people can enjoy a drink that they love, while at the same time help the veterans who have fought to keep our country free,” explains Ken Falke, chairman and founder of Boulder Crest Retreat (BCR). “We are grateful to team up with Tackitt Family Vineyards to offer a great tasting charity wine that also supports a great cause.”
