For every bottle of Montes and Santa Ema Chilean wines you purchase at our store from now until May 2010, a portion of the proceeds are donated to help provide earthquake relief to the people of Chile.
I will post some more info about the wines we carry from them very soon.
Providing Earthquake Relief to the People of Chile
LOS ANGELES, March 9, 2010
Alex Guarachi sits at the helm of TGIC. As President and CEO, he has vowed to help his native country in their time of need by pledging a $50,000 donation toward relief efforts. In addition, TGIC Importers has already launched a consumer awareness program in which the TGIC Importers will donate a portion of their proceeds from every bottle sold of Montes and Santa Ema wines in the months of March, April, and May to rebuild Chile; TGIC Importers expects this effort to raise another $50,000. These funds will go directly to a Chilean Earthquake Relief Fund.

On February 27, 2010, the earth shook, killing more than 800 people and leaving an estimated two-million in Chile homeless. The destruction will continue to be felt for many years to come. With repair estimates hovering in the billions of dollars. Exiting Chilean President Michelle Bachelet calls the devastation, “an emergency unparalleled in the history of Chile.” Raise a glass and help ride to the rescue.
