Drink a bottle, save a smile!

Terranova Imports ( www.terranovawine.com), fine importers
of Italian wines, are giving back! For each bottle of Happy
Tails white or red sold, part of the proceeds will be donated
to the Pennsylvania and Cumberland County SPCA chapters.
This in turn will be saving the smile of a dog, cat, rabbit,
etc. which in turn will bring many smiles in
return to a future owner, their friends, and their family.
I myself have adopted two stray cats (Booboo and Sasha),
helped other stray cats get adopted, and even helped one dog
get adopted (I told the future owners that he was fluent in
horse and pony, since they had both). For those that are
familiar with the SPCA, they have done a phenomenal job over
the years as a national organization protecting the welfare
of animals, but they are not in it for a profit. They exist
on donations and what little recompense that they receive
when an animal is adopted.
So, along came Carmine Verrecchia, with his firm,
Terranova Imports. They have released two of their
wines under a special label, Happy Tails, to help fund the
Pennsylvania and Cumberland County SPCA chapters. Happy
Tails White is a combination of Chardonnay (30%) and
Malvasia Bianca (70%) grapes forming a nice, but somewhat
dry wine with a trace of green apple in the flavor. Happy
Tails Red is from Sangiovese, one of my new favorite red
grapes. It has a medium dryness, an absence of that tannic
character, and a nice black currant, spice, and plum
flavor. I gave them both a rating of 8 and for they can each
be had for less than $10 a bottle!
You can find out more here and try a
bottle when you get the chance, some tails will wag happily
as a result.
