The Homeless Grapes Project began in 2015, when Jock Harvey from Chalk Hill Wines offered a surplus block of grapes to anyone who was interested. But only on one condition, if they made a donation to charity.
From there, The Homeless Grapes Project was born and has since raised $150,000 for homelessness charities.
For the first time in 2018, The Homeless Grapes Project has created three separate wines from three different regional picks in the Yarra Valley, Coonawarra and McLaren Vale. The wines are a product of community, with winemakers, growers, producers, families and individuals all coming together to donate their time and resources. The idea to give back to the immediate community, with each product’s entire proceeds going directly to support local charities in the region.
This February, The Homeless Grapes Project 2018 Yarra Valley Chardonnay is set to be released. The Chardonnay, consisting of donated picks from De Bortoli Wines, Rochford Wines and TarraWarra Estate will raise money for St Mary’s House of Welcome in Victoria. The drop is the perfect feel-good indulgence, guaranteed to warm your heart and support those who need it most in your community.
Presale for the Yarra Valley Chardonnay is now available through Vinomofo at $25 a bottle sold by the case and scheduled to be sent out from February 4th.
