Do It for the Love Wines

Do It For the Love Foundation Wines: Amidst the yoga and neo-hippie rock surrounding Michael Franti’s Soulshine stop at the Santa Barbara Bowl last month was a backstage tasting of wines made to benefit Franti’s Do it for the Love Foundation, which delivers “life-changing” experiences to disabled kids, terminally ill people of all ages, and wounded veterans.

The $19 wines, made by the passionate Italian family behind Napa Valley’s Ca’Momi restaurant and brand, are straightforward and decent drinkers, especially for being kitchen sink-like blends. The white puts chardonnay together with viognier, muscat, and sauvignon blanc, while the red mixes up syrah, cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot, and zinfandel. So sip up and know your money goes to a good cause.
