Think Pink!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I'm all about giving some publicity to wine-related companies who donate proceeds to the cause. (I did a roundup of several in an article last year.)

Napa Valley's Domaine Chandon is thinking pink this month, too. For the entire month of October $1 from every bottle of rosé (of which the winery sells four varieties) sold at the winery will go to Queen of the Valley Hospital Foundation. In addition to Chandon Rosé, you can purchase another pink sparkler— a one-carat pink sapphire pendant that Shreve and Company custom-created for Domaine Chandon. Chandon offers this item through an eBay auction which will continue through the month of October. All proceeds from its sale will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
