Tri-City winery Monde eau Wines will donate profits from its wine sales to a water-focused charity.
Monde eau Wines, which means "world water," was created last year to support humanitarian efforts toward safe drinking water in the developing world, according to a news release.
"More than 30,000 people die every week from unsafe water," said Mickey Dunne, co-founder of Monde eau Wines, in a statement. "The vast majority of those casualties are children under 5 years old. This situation is preventable, and we all can be part of the solution."
Dunne is also the co-owner of Powers Winery in the Rancho Reata area of Kennewick.
Monde eau Wines will donate profits to New York City-based charity: water.
Monde eau Wines's 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2011 Syrah, 2012 Chardonnay, and 2012 Riesling are all produced with certified-organically grown grapes from the Columbia Valley AVA. The bottles are sold for about $10.
