Tasting Now: Veterans' Spirit

Gallant Few Wine and Flag

Complexity is the name of the game when it comes to Veterans' Spirit red blend, Gallant Few. To start, it greets you with a nose-full of berries. Then, it has this spicy, mocha-driven undertone that carries it through the palate. Despite all this flavor, it is still a smooth and easy-drinking red with medium weight and decent acidity. The perfect compliment to almost anything your grilling up this weekend.

There's more to this wine than just the taste, though. This is a wine with a purpose. Veterans' Spirit Beverages is a company of veterans for the benefit of veterans. They make and sell premium American vodka, whiskey, rum and wine. For every bottle sold, $1 is donated to a charitable veteran organization. For their proprietary red wine - that organization is Gallant Few.

Our service men and women are asked to face the worst of humanity. Returning to the States is often yet another challenge we ask of them. Gallant Few is a support network for veterans aiming to make that transition back smoother. No veteran should feel alone.

Join us in raising a glass to the men and women who give everything. To all those who serve or have served this great country: thank you.
