gives almost a quarter of his or her charitable gifts during the holiday season, according to a 2007 study by Indiana University's Center on Philanthropy. This helps to explain all the holiday appeals appearing in my mailbox of late, not to mention the barrage of online campaigns that I've been seeing as well. In fact, charity-focused organizations and brands (think Newman's Own) are just about everywhere—except in the wine shop. When I recently went searching for charity-related wines, I found very few attached to a good cause.
Wine Testing Tour One reason may be that these wines often come with promotional material such as banners or signs that can steal valuable floor space. Most wine merchants don't want to fill their stores with more displays. Others, like Gary Fisch, owner of three Gary's Wine & Marketplace shops in New Jersey, prefer to make their own contributions to relief organizations or local food banks. And some are wary of lousy wine touted chiefly for a philanthropic link. "We've avoided it if the wines are not quality wines," said Mr. Fisch, whose store was one of seven that I visited this past week on my search for bottles that drink well and do good.
Wine Testing Tour India Gerald Weisl, the owner of Weimax Wines & Spirits in Burlingame, Calif., told me much the same thing. In fact, he emailed me a particularly egregious story about a wine with a cause: Ten percent of the sales of a bottle from a winery called Cleavage Creek, whose label features a buxom woman, is said to go to breast cancer research. Mr. Weisl wrote that he'd rather send his money to charities and "focus on good wine for good wine's sake." And yet there are some producers who focus on both. In 2011, Charles Banks, a former co-owner of Screaming Eagle winery, founded Cultivate, a California-based wine company with a big charitable component. As a man accustomed to selling wines that cost thousands of dollars a bottle, he didn't want to be seen peddling something of questionable quality. "It all starts with the wines," said Mr. Banks.
