The first time I ever tried a CK Mondavi wine was at my cousin's graduation party. If you even know me a little bit, you'll know that alcohol particularly wine is not my specialty. But I guess peer pressure really does kick in, and soon I had a glass of red in hand and chatting it up with my cousin's best gal pals, and I must say it's been one of the better red wines that I've tried so far!
That being said, I wanted to let you all know about a great way to give back to our veterans and stock up on some weekend wine too! Starting in May and running through August, a percentage of each bottle sold will be donated to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, an organization that supports the men and women of the Armed Forces and their families. The entire fund consists entirely of public donations, and serves our military personnel who have been wounded or killed in service, as well as their families.
