This particular one, Homefront Red 2011 is special for this reason: For every bottle sold Murphy-Goode will donate 50 cents to Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit that provides emergency and financial assistance to the families of service members and wounded warriors.
The wine is a smooth and fruit-forward red blend made from grapes from California's Dry Creek Valley and Bennett Valley. At $15, this is a great table red to have at dinner parties or enjoy on a weeknight.
On this particular day we were not grilling, but I felt like our homemade BBQ Chicken Pizza was a dish with some Americana feel that would pair well with Homefront Red. Plus, it complemented the red nicely with all the sweet and savory flavor. Cheers to wines that give back to the community and this one especially, for honoring our military members.
