We all love to support brands that give back to the world, and wine is no different. Below are 6 Ontario wines that all give back to great causes. Some are available in the LCBO and others are available via their website online.
Game Changer Series
Game Changer is a group of wine that in itself is a celebration of excellence, philanthropy and the “quiet heroes” that are all around us. The wine is produced using a cutting-edge, optical sorting system which assists the winemaker in removing unwanted materials and grapes that fall outside the desired parameters. This new and amazing technology literally changed the game for the winery. “Game Changer” and all it implies has become our stream to financially give back to charities within our community while honouring those unsung individuals who make life better for us all. You can order directly from the website.
Flat Rock Good Kharma Chardonnay 2019
This is a wine that tastes great and gives back: a portion of sales are donated to Feed Ontario. You can also pick some up from the winery – which has as stunning view of Toronto on a clear day!
Introducing Megalomanic wines ‘ Much Obliged’. The are red and white wines produced to honour all of the brave healthcare workers whose hard work during this crisis deserves our deepest appreciation. In the name of these superheroes, a portion of the proceeds of every bottle of Much Obliged wine sold will go to Food Banks Canada to support our neighbours in need, now and when the pandemic is over. The white is a Riesling. To date, the winery has raised and donated $30,000 to Foodbanks Canada. Available at the winery with free shipping.
Proud Pour Pinot Gris
Cheers to Change! What if drinking wine made the world a better place? Proud Pour shares the mission in healing the ecosystems that sustain our product. Always sustainably grown and vegan, our Pinot Gris supports environment nonprofits in Canada. Specifically bee habitats and oysters (released in LCBO Vintages and also available at Queenston Mile Winery)
Under Current “Breakaway” Riesling
This single vineyard Riesling is called “Breakaway” in reference to coast to coast, a bicycle tour in support of kids cancer research. $2 from every bottle goes directly to this incredible organization.
