We are all hearing such down news every day. But, there are some good stories out there. I had to blog about this particular one. Chuck Jenkins, a wine consultant & educator from Houston, Texas was the winner of the etched 2005 3L we raffled off during Premiere Napa Valley. Rather than just say yahoo and take the wine, Chuck wrote; “
“I originally thought that I’d tell you to to sell the bottle and give the proceeds to your favorite charity (I believe you’re involved with several) but on second thought, I’ve decided to take the bottle and will statrt to make annual contributions to whatever charity you’re featuring on your website. (I see it’s the V Foundation right now, so I’ll be sending them a check in your honor). In the long run, everyone will benefit more, so thank you for getting the ball rolling!”
This again proves that wine can inspire on many levels. I propose a toast to Chuck!
