The Homeless Grapes Project
YARRA VALLEY CHARDONNAY
Through The Homeless Grapes Project, Vinomofo recruited De Bortoli Wines, TarraWarra Estate and Rochford Wines to collaborate and make a special Yarra Valley chardonnay just for us. We’re proud and excited to have been chosen to receive 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this wine, allowing us to continue to support the most disadvantaged people in our community.
What is The Homeless Grapes Project?
The Homeless Grapes Project began in 2015, when Jock Harvey from Chalk Hill Wines posted on Facebook that he had a surplus block of grapes that his team couldn’t pick, and anyone could have them for a donation to charity. Vinomofo CEO, Andre, saw an opportunity to make cheeky little shiraz with the grapes and send 100% of the profits to charity. And this, is how The Homeless Grapes Project was born.
People jumped on board the HGP train immediately, keen to be involved and help in any way possible. The result? An incredible $36,000 donation to the Hutt St Centre in Adelaide. Since then The Homeless Grapes Project has raised a total of $80k for Hutt St.
Vinomofo are selling the wine for $25 a bottle, which will be bloody good value for some delicious Yarra chardy goodness. A lot of love has gone into the making of this wine, not to mention how good we’re all going to feel about being involved, with your money going straight to St Mary’s House of Welcome.
