The featured Vermeil Wines are available for purchase and can be delivered in time for the virtual wine tasting.

Vermeil bottled the first vintage of the Jean Louis Vermeil Cabernet Sauvignon; a foray into winemaking that was only the beginning of what would eventually develop into Vermeil Wines in 1999. Today Vermeil Wines offer 11 different wines made with the same attention and care put into that very first bottling almost 20 years ago. With one of the best winemaking teams in the valley in Thomas Brown and Andy Jones, Vermeil Wines strive for excellence. Vermeil Wines take tremendous pride in their deep ties to the history of the Napa Valley, continuing to source their fruit from two of the oldest vineyards in Calistoga and one of the oldest in Sonoma.

The mission of the Still Strong Foundation (www.stillstrongfoundation.org) is to assist families whose children are battling cancer. The organization is focused on wanting these families to spend less time worrying about non-medical bills, like mortgages and utilities, and more time supporting their child to a victorious fight against cancer. Still Strong wants to bring joy to children battling cancer and to support their parents who are facing financial hardships. We also want to positively impact the cancer community.

The Rich Mauti Cancer Fund, (www.richmauticancerfund.org) is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to raising money for cancer research, education and screenings, with all funds to be utilized in the State of Louisiana; the state, by the way, with the highest incident rate in the nation for several major types of cancer.
