A friend of mine was gracious enough to come over recently and cook a fantastic dinner of butternut squash tortellini with brown butter sauce. Her graciousness went beyond the meal– she arrived with a bottle of Vinum Cellars Reserve Petite Sirah wine in tow.
Knowing how much I love my dog and The Recycled Retriever, she selected the wine based on the dog pictured on the label. Since we are into reading and occasionally fawning over wine labels, we almost immediately discovered that the cellar donates a portion of the profits from this wine to their local dog shelter. Beyond the label and the philanthropy we discovered a great wine.
At The Recycled Retriever we think the charity of the vineyard is enough reason to crack open a bottle or two. Look for the Vinum Cellars Reserve Petite Sirah with the dog on the front. If you have time check out www.vinumcellars.com/vinum/index.jsp.
