Rancho Rossa Vineyards Introduces “Wine of the Wild” Benefiting Reid Park Zoo
Local winery Rancho Rossa Vineyards has released a new premium wine benefiting Reid Park Zoo called Wine of the Wild. The wine is a red blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot with fresh grapes from southern Arizona.
Rancho Rossa Vineyards has been producing wine on 24 acres in beautiful Elgin, Arizona since 2004. Breanna and Chris Hamilton, owners of the vineyards, have a long history of supporting animal causes and have their own non-profit branch of their business called Rescued Hearts Cellars that helps pay for veterinary services for domestic animals in local rescues. The Hamiltons wanted to continue to give back to organizations that protect animals and have a deep connection to Reid Park Zoo.
“The Zoo is really important to us,” says Breanna Hamilton. She fondly remembers spending time in Reid Park Zoo with her grandmother as a child. Her grandmother had Alzheimer’s disease, but the Zoo was one place where her grandmother still looked happy. Wildlife conservation and connecting with children are also important to the Hamiltons. “We love that Reid Park Zoo is small but does big things.”
The labels feature artistic illustrations of six species at the Zoo: African elephants, squirrel monkeys, giraffes, flamingos, white rhinos, and anteaters.
Rancho Rossa Vineyards is open for in-person tastings. Wine of the Wild can be purchased for $25 a bottle on their website: https://ranchorossa.com/shop/zoo-non_profit-wine. 100% of the profit earned from this wine directly benefits Reid Park Zoo.
