Wine Club Teams Up With Charity: Water To Fund Clean Water Around The World

Club W, a personalized monthly wine club, has teamed up with Charity: Water, a nonprofit organization, for a special collaboration to fund clean water projects for global populations in need. So far, the organization has funded more than 16,000 water projects in 24 countries, bringing clean water to 5.2 million people.

On August 17, Club W will launch the Charity: Water and Club W Red Blend — a Bordeaux-style blend from Santa Barbara County with a "full-bodied, complex explosion of dark red fruits" — for $20 per bottle, $5 of which will be donated to Charity: Water. Additionally, every purchase of a six-bottle pack will provide one person in need with clean, safe drinking water.

"As passionate producers of wine, we know how important water is to producing healthy vineyards and delicious wines," Brian Smith, chief wine officer of Club W, said in a statement. "This, however, is irrelevant in the context of the daily challenges for the many men, women, and children without access to life's most basic need and vital necessity. We're extremely excited about collaborating with Scott [Harrison, founder] and his incredible Charity: Water team on behalf of the Club W community to positively affect so many lives for years to come."
