On behalf of everybody at Palate Press: The online wine magazine and Brother Can You Spare a Bottle, it is my pleasure, my honor, to thank the wine community for its amazing generosity supporting the Wine for Haiti project. The response has been absolutely amazing.
The heartrending pictures beamed around the world from Haiti caused thousands of people to open their purses and wallets to contribute to disaster relief. In the United States and Australia people have opened their cellars - wine cellars, that is.
The amazing (and amazingly twisted) people at Twisted Oak have contributed a full vertical of every vintage of our Calaveras County "The Spaniard": 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 - plus a rubber chicken to round out the six pack. Retail value $250.
