Purple Heart Wines, a collaboration between C. Mondavi & Family and the Purple Heart Foundation, an organization which supports veterans in need, announced a $20,000 donation to fund Foundation support for veterans impacted by the recent wine country wildfires in Northern California.

The Purple Heart Foundation will be funneling 100 percent of this $20,000 donation received from Purple Heart Wines directly to veterans impacted by the wildfires that occurred in Napa and Sonoma County in October, said a news release.

The Purple Heart Foundation is working with local Purple Heart chapters to channel relief efforts to nine veterans and their families whose homes and possessions were destroyed by the wildfires, said the release.

"This donation will help them pick up the pieces and begin anew," it said. 

On the eve of Veterans Day, Purple Heart Wines proprietor Marc Mondavi was joined by Purple Heart Wines winemaker—and Air Force veteran—John Moynier, and Bill Hutton, senior vice president of the Purple Heart Foundation, to present a $20,000 check towards this relief effort.
