Los Gatos Villa del Monte Winery Helps Grind Out Hunger

Summit Road winery will donate $1 per bottle from sales during January, February and March to Santa Cruz nonprofit.

23076 Summit Rd., has announced that it will be donating $1 per bottle from sales in January, February and March to local nonprofit Grind Out Hunger in Santa Cruz.

Grind Out Hunger raises awareness about local hunger issues and engages youth to get involved in food campaigns for Second Harvest Food Bank.

The winery will be open for wine tasting noon-5 p.m. Jan. 26-27, Feb. 9-10 and March 30-31. 

Villa del Monte co-owner Joyce Perrelli said the public will taste a variety of wines, including three wines that won medals at the 2013 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.

Winemakers John Overstreet and Neil Perrelli produce Cabernet, Chardonnay, Malbec, Merlot, Merlot Dessert Wine, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Syrah Rosé, and Zinfandel wines.

Grapes come from top Northern California appellations, primarily from American Viticultural Areas (AVAs) in the Santa Cruz Mountains (Santa Cruz County), Los Carneros (Napa County), and Santa Clara, according to Joyce Perrelli.

I haven't had a chance to try their wines. What a great idea to encourage service and taste.
