Why Wine?

Wine is the way we choose to make a difference in this world. Why? Because the abandoned youth we support live in wine country, Argentina. And what better way to build up communities and generations by activating our purchasing power through a product we enjoy regularly. Family owned vineyards and abandoned youth go together like cheese and wine. How do we know? Because we watched it literally transform the lives of hundreds of oppressed communities when done right. Join our movement for wine tips, food and wine recipes and stories about the abandoned youth your wine purchase supports. Stay with us if you are a wine lover who dares to change the world.

2016 VINTAGE: Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, April, 2018 - 93 points

 

Tasting notes:

  • Fruity
  • Herbal 
  • Mineral

Light, clear and fruity in the mouth, some herbal and mineral notes, fine acidity, a touch of tannin, but very harmonious, lingers on with a pleasant finish. 


Dr. Hermann, the Riesling estate in Mosel Valley, Germany, is helmed by Christian Hermann. Christian’s philosophy is that quality starts in the vineyard with restrained pruning, hand harvesting, and natural, meticulous cultivation of vineyard soil. The result is beautiful, elegant wines from some of the most famous vineyard sites in the world. Hermann specializes in Riesling grown on the steep, rocky slopes of the famous vineyards of Erdener Prälat, Erdener Treppchen, and Ürziger Würzgarten. All of the fruit for Dr. Hermann Riesling grows on un-grafted, old vines, which deliver beautiful and complex wines.
