It’s that time of year when we’re all getting serious about gift-giving. This year, I’m thrilled to announce we’ve created a Limited Edition Spritz Sampler of all five RAMONA flavors, and 10% of sales will benefit No Kid Hungry, an organization dedicated to ending childhood hunger that has become increasingly meaningful to me over the years.
RAMONA’s value system has differentiated us from Day One - and working to do our part in helping make the world around us a little better has always been part of our DNA. Our organic wines & spritzes are farmed without chemical herbicides, fungicides or pesticides in Italy, a country with a 3,000 year tradition of organic farming. Our family-owned winery partners are committed to an ethical supply chain, and we are thankful to be able to offer a gift that helps give back to a cause we care deeply about.
In other news, I’m so excited to announce that comedienne, actress, and mother Jenny Mollen has joined RAMONA as Chief Brand Officer! RAMONA is named after my sister’s childhood alter-ego, I founded the company as an alter-ego to my life in fine wine, and Jenny embodies this spirit more than anyone. We are thrilled to welcome her to the team and, with her around, we’re constantly reminded of Maya Angelou’s advice to “ "Laugh as much as possible, always laugh. It's the sweetest thing one can do for oneself & one's fellow human beings."
Don’t miss the final episodes of our first season Opening Up - I am joined in conversation with Camilla Marcus of Westbourne and ROAR, and Chef Mark Ladner, one of America’s great chefs who introduced us all to excellent pasta.
May you all eat and drink well this month!
