Donate a dollar for World Water Week
This Friday Vino asks those who come to our free tasting to donate $1 for World Water Week, an event organized by the Tap Project. From March 22-28, 2009 the Tap Project will raise vital donations and awareness for UNICEF’s water and sanitation programs.
The Tap Project is based on a simple concept: the donation of $1 or more for tap water usually enjoyed for free raises funds to support UNICEF’s efforts to bring clean and accessible water to millions of children around the world. For every dollar raised by the Tap Project, a child will have clean drinking water for 40 days.
Vino will be pouring four wines by Rome-based producer Castel de Paolis. After all, it was the Romans who first revolutionized urban sanitation by introducing aqueducts to carry fresh water into their cities. Another aqueous connection surrounds Castel de Paolis’ wine I Quattro Mori, named after a fountain in Marino, where they’ve been known to turn water into wine — literally. Once a year, as part of this small Lazio town’s Sagra dell’Uva festival, the fountain is hooked up to vats of the local wine’s latest vintage, much to the delight of Marino’s inhabitants.
Join us for our special Tap Project Tasting this Friday, March 20, from 5:30pm. Naturally on this occasion, tap water will also be on hand for those who wish to cleanse their palate!
