Highland Valley Vineyards has partnered with the San Diego Food Bank to donate 20% of wine receipts to the organization during the coronavirus crisis.

According to a press release, the Escondido-based winery will donate 20% of its gross wine sales to the Food Bank to help with the supply of food for the underserved San Diego population. Highland Valley Vineyards is open for carry-out sales on Saturdays and Sundays from 12-6pm and online options on its website, www.HighlandValleyVineyards.com, with UPS delivery options, states the release.

“The virus crisis is affecting everyone, but in particular, the thousands who have recently lost employment,” said Jeannine O’Brien, co-owner and co-winemaker at the winery. “The San Diego Food Bank provides a nutritional safety net and we are proud to support their efforts in this time of particular need.”

Founded in 2007, Highland Valley Vineyards is located in Highland Valley, overlooking the San Pasqual Valley, and specializes in Bordeaux-variety wines.
