It feels like lockdown has made it easier than ever to think up excuses to open a bottle of wine. However, “But it’s for charity!” wasn’t one of them. Until now.
This month, London-based drinks company NICE, known chiefly for their canned rosé and Sauv Blanc, are launching an initiative called Wine for Heroes, in which they’re donating the profits from 20,000 bottles of Malbec to NHS charities.
This Malbec was originally planned to be rolled out in slimline can format, in time for the festival season. But with festivals now stranded in the mire, they’re instead releasing it in standard 75ml bottles, which you can pick up for £8 from nice-drinks.co.uk/heroes, as well as in Sainsbury’s and on Amazon.
I haven’t had a chance to try the Malbec yet, but with such a good cause you can’t go far wrong, can you.
