Wines for Ukraine
Due to Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine, winemakers in Catalunya, Spain have joined to together to give wines, directly from the bottle archives in their cellars to raise funds for the Ukrainian Red Cross, Come Back Alive, and/or World Central Kitchen.
Winners may chose from either of these organizations as they are all doing good work on the ground providing different kinds of assistance to those affected by the massive humanitarian disaster caused by the war. The Ukrainian Red Cross (in partnership with Ukraine's Ministry of Health) is providing medical aid, World Central Kitchen is a massive volunteer operation at the borders of Poland and Romania providing food to refugees as well as to displaced people or those in need around Ukraine thanks to partnering up with local restaurants and chefs, and Come Back Alive is a non-profit that since 2014 has been supporting Ukraine's service men and women with protective gear and equipment as well as first aid training and other skills.
There are many excellent wines included here from top-end, 'grand cru' bottles to wines that are 20 and even nearly 50 years old, to special magnums, to incredible sparkling wines, to a selection of low-intervention projects, and everything in between. Any specific questions can be sent to: email@example.com
