In time for the holidays, Montes Wines of Chile has donated $50,000 to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to help support life-changing research for children and adults affected with the disease.

Their new campaign, “Angels in Action,” is a joint fundraising effort by Chilean winery Viña Montes and its U.S. distributors in nine states. Montes and its distributors jointly donated a portion of all wholesale proceeds from last September.

Aurelio Montes, President of Montes Wines:

“Angels represent the Viña Montes mission to give back and we’re so proud to be able to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, an organization dedicated to being guardian angels to those suffering from this disease. We truly view this accomplishment as a group effort between our team and our customers, since every purchase helped increase the amount donated to this incredible charity.”

Montes Wines’ distributors represented California, Maryland, Washington D.C., New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Florida: Titan Wine and Spirits, Connecticut Distributors, Horizon Beverage Group, Reliable Churchill, Washington Wholesale, R & R Marketing, Capital Wine & Spirits, United Distributors and Premier Beverage Group
