How to enjoy a cheeky glass or two of red without feeling guilty

Do you sometimes feel a little guilty when you enjoy a pre-dinner wine, or perhaps an extra glass of red before bed? 

What if by downing an extra glass or two you were actually doing some good; helping those less fortunate that yourself. Call it getting pissed with a purpose (but in moderation, of course). 



Vinomofo, the successful online wine seller, has unveiled a new wine that aims to help prevent homelessness; 100% of all the proceeds from the Homeless Grapes Project McLaren Vale Shiraz go towards helping the disadvantaged.

The 2016 project, the second, features some big names with Charlie Seppelt from Hickinbotham Wines using grapes donated by Chalk Hill. Last year, more than $40,000 was raised for Adelaide homeless centre the Hutt St Centre. 

Vinomofo co-founder and CEO Andre Eikmeier said the project was a priority for his team. 

"Our aim has always been to do some good by connecting people with wine, whether it is making wine for an amazing project like this, lending a hand to those in need or donating through our Wine For Good project when checking out online." 

The wine, pretty decent drinking right now, is on sale for $15 a bottle at www.vinomofo.com and Michael Francis from Hutt St Centre urges wine lovers to do some good in a most unusual way. 

"This funding helps to ensure people are offered opportunities to change their lives," Francis says. "It gives them options for their future."
