It’s that time of year again. Can you really believe that it’s Thanksgiving NEXT WEEK? I’m in a bit of a state of panic myself. That being said, I wanted to call your attention to a wine event on Friday, November 21st. This special event is hosted by Humanitas Wines, Twitter Taste Live, Twittermoms.com and Lenndevours.com, in an effort to support the local food banks during this needy time.
While it is too late to ship the wine out to anyone not in the Bay Area, you still have 1.5 days to either:
Find a Twitter party or run up to Napa to pick up the wines! There are a few local stores that carry them, click through to see the locations.
We will be tasting:
- 2006 Sauvignon Blanc-Monterey
- 2007 Chardonnay “Oak Free”-Monterey
- 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon-Paso Robles
- 2006 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast
Humanitas is dedicated to changing the world, one sip of delicious wine at a time. They donate the profits made from these wines to charities, which find solutions to hunger, housing, and illiteracy. For this event, proceeds are going to feed the hungry, something close to my heart at this time of year.

Inspired by companies such as Newman’s Own, he started Humanitas to fulfill two dreams: Owning his own winery, and giving back
Having been fortunate enough to taste some of the Humanitas wines at the Wine Bloggers Conference, I am really excited about both contributing to the local food bank, and having another opportunity invite my wine community friends over, sip some amazing wines from all over California, and do Twitter Taste Live! Won’t you join us?
Enjoy Humanitas…Drink Charitably!
