Vital Wines is a non-profit winery whose 100% profits go toward better healthcare for vineyard and winery workers in the Walla Walla Valley. All funds go to the SOS Clinic, a free, open-door, no questions asked, bilingual healthcare clinic. We’ve been lucky enough to launch this project with absolutely everything donated- fruit, corks, capsules, labels, graphic design, winemaking, lab work- everything. Thanks for your support.
