Besides marking the unofficial start of summer, Memorial Day is just that—an opportunity to honor those who have died while serving in the U.S. armed forces, dating back to the Civil War.
Add some extra meaning to your long weekend R&R with Josh Cellars Military Salute Edition Lodi Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. For every bottle of wine purchased, $1 will go to Operation Gratitude, a nonprofit that sends letters and packages containing food, hygiene essentials, entertainment, and handmade items to troops serving abroad.
The Cabernet Lodi Reserve wine itself is delicious, with notes of red fruit, berries, chocolate, and coffee. It goes well with anything you put on the barbecue (meat, fish, vegetables, and even fruit). Rest assured it’s the perfect, easy-sipping wine to suit a variety of taste buds whether you’re hosting a party or want to bring a gift to a backyard cookout or Memorial Day soirée.
You know what else it pairs well with? Sending a care package or a hand-written note to troops, veterans, and first responders. There’s also an Operation Gratitude’s Amazon Wish List, meaning you can make a huge difference this Memorial Day (and any day) in just a few clicks.
