Christmas Countdown: 4 Days to Go!

Throughout the holiday season wine flows as freely as water, but in many countries around the world, millions of people still lack access to clean drinking water. Today, our Christmas Countdown continues with Wine to Water, a non-profit dedicated to getting clean drinking water to those in need around the world. Since 2004, Wine to Water founder and former bartender, Doc Hendley, has helped get clean drinking water to people in nine countries by drilling wells, distributing filters and installing running water systems. But with nearly one billion people across the globe still lacking access to clean drinking water, the organization’s work is far from done. You can help by donating directly through their site, hosting a wine-party fundraiser with friends, or ordering a case of their old-vine Zinfandel and estate-grown Chardonnay.
