Renwood Winery is pleased to announce that it has completed a four month fundraising program in support of the American Heart Association's My Heart, My Life and Go Red for Women initiatives. The multi-faceted promotion consisted of a $1 donation to the AHA for every bottle of Renwood wine sold, a social media campaign awarding a $1 donation for every #RHF and/or #AHA hashtag shared, and tasting room sales of Renwood logo red earbuds in which 100% of proceeds were donated. As a result of those efforts, Renwood is honored to announce that Winemaker Joe Shebl will be presenting the organization with a $15,000 donation.
The Renwood team embraces the American Heart Association's program to promote heart health through education and the encouragement of a healthy lifestyle. "We see moderate wine consumption as playing a part in a healthy lifestyle that includes a health conscious eating plan and getting regular exercise." Says Winemaker Joe Shebl. "We try to lead by example and have incorporated several of the American Heart Association's tips into our daily routines here at the winery. I have even begun riding my bike to regularly check our vineyards. We feel really good about helping the AHA raise awareness and save lives.
Judy Coffey, American Heart Association Western States Affiliate board member added, "We thank Renwood for their contribution in the fight against cardiovascular diseases and stroke in women."
