With Veterans Day right around the corner and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan still raging each night as we turn out our lights, it couldn’t come at a better time for a fine beverage company to show their support of our Armed Forces and their families. Singing Water Vineyards of Comfort, Texas has partnered up with The Fisher House Foundation to provide scholarships for military children by donating partial proceeds from the sales of their 2008 FREEDOM wine. A blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot, 2008 FREEDOM has been aged in oak barrels for 24 months and is considered a premium red wine.
The scholarships are awarded to the sons and daughters of active duty, retired, and deceased military personnel and so far the campaign has been received very well. ”I want to express our appreciation to Singing Water Vineyards for their patriotism and generosity. It is a great example of support for our uniformed military families who have committed their lives to protect our FREEDOM,” said Lieutenant General Steven. R. Polk USAF (ret.). Being a vet myself and having served in Iraq on active duty and currently serving in the California Army National Guard, I have to agree with his sentiment. The stress on the families of service members isn’t any easier than it is on the service members themselves, so it’s nice to see them being looked after as well.
2008 FREEDOM can be purchased from their website and is listed at $22.95 per bottle/$263.40 per case.
