Yountville, Calif., November 8, 2018 — Purple Heart Wines (, a cause-based wine brand created by C. Mondavi & Family, is proud to announce its donation of $10,000 to the Purple Heart Foundation in yesterday’s check ceremony at the Yountville Veteran's Home; with this donation, the brand has contributed $70,000 to the non-profit since the projects' inception in 2016.
