Philanthropic Winery is for the Birds

A freak event in which a hawk electrocuted on power lines created a blaze that destroyed a California vineyard in May 2008 inspired Resolution Wines and Windsor Vineyards to team up to launch Burning Hawk wine, a charitable brand that will help prevent bird electrocutions and collisions. As described more fully here:
10% of total sales of Burning Hawk wine will be contributed to organizations working to prevent raptors and other birds from being killed through electrocution or collision with power lines, windmills and other elements of the energy system.

Your blog is great! Thanks for posting the information about Burning Hawk. It's nice to know that I can support raptors the next time I open a bottle of wine.
