Buy this wine & be philanthropic at the same time

Looking to blend your philanthropy with your enology? ‘Tis the season.

A limited-production wine is almost always a personal endeavor, but for the Bump family their recently released Darms Lane Linda’s Hillside Vineyard cabernet sauvignon is truly a labor of love.

The wine is named in honor of Darms Lane vineyard co-owner Linda Bump, who died of ovarian cancer in 2007, and one-third of the bottle’s recommended selling price of $75 is slated for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

“Having this wine is really nice,” says Tricia Bump Davis, Linda’s daughter. Smooth and restrained, the wine, mostly cab with a little cabernet franc and petit verdot added in, is an elegant blend that fits the kind of flavor profile Bump preferred, adds Bump’s other daughter, Tricia. “We like to say that we think she would have enjoyed this wine.”

Linda’s Hillside, available directly from the vineyard, is one of several ways you can sip for a cause during the holidays.
