The Wine Lover and The Cure

Looking to donate to help find a cure for breast cancer? October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and here are two options for the wine lover. If you purchase either, part of the proceeds will go towards breast cancer research:

Riedel Vinum Pink Rose Wine Glasses: These are limited edition offerings from Riedel, and 15% of proceeds go to the Living Beyond Breast Cancer Foundation. They are lovely options from which to sip a rose or blush wine, and they also make great gifts for people who just love the color pink. Wine Enthusiast is currently offering free shipping on a set of two.

Wines from Cleavage Creek Cellars: Owner and California winemaker Budge Brown lost his wife of 48 years to breast cancer. He turned his anger and devastation to action, creating a winery that celebrates survivors, and works to find a cure for breast cancer. On the wine's labels are pictures of breast cancer survivors, and 10% of sales go towards research to find a cure.
