Jenny McCarthy is a mother, model, actress, author of a series of New York Times Best-selling books and relentless activist for autism through her charity Generation Rescue. Starting today and through May 26, she’s being honored with a custom wine made exclusively for Generation Rescue available only through online wine company Cellar Angels.
The wine will be served only once in public at the 5th annual Rescue Our Angels event May 24th held in Chicago and put on by Peter and Michele Doyle, Chicago residents who founded Rescue Our Angels to raise money for autism awareness.
The wine, a 2011 Pinot Gris, was sourced from a small vineyard in the Russian River Valley, a famed location in the County of Sonoma, CA. Blanchard Family Wines produced less than 75 cases specifically to help Generation Rescue raise funds for families suffering with autism spectrum disorders.
Blanchard Family Wines had previous experience with both Generation Rescue and their charity partner Cellar Angels, so working together at a single event was a natural progression. For Cellar Angels President Martin Cody, the winery, the cause and the wine make perfect sense.
“Blanchard Family is a terrific story themselves producing hand-crafted wines from exceptional vineyard locations. This Pinot Gris is the perfect warm weather wine as it has a radiant brightness, crisp aromas of citrus groves and fresh flowers and just a brilliant taste. It’s truly a fine wine and at this price-point it’s a terrific wine buy for an incredible cause,” he said.
Both Blanchard Family Wine and Cellar Angels are donating portions of proceeds to Generation Rescue.
“I’m very excited to attend this event. It’s families like our hosts the Doyles and companies like Blanchard Family Wines and Cellar Angels paying it forward and making a lasting impact,” said Jenny McCarthy, the guest of honor for the evening’s event.
