As if you need another excuse to buy pinot noir grown by Ryan Carr in the Sta. Rita Hills, this small-batch, 50-case bottling directly benefits breast cancer research.
Released just in time for Mother’s Day and adorned with the image of a pink ribbon, Marie’s Pinot was inspired by Ryan’s dad Budd Carr, who lost his mother, Marie Robinson Carr, to breast cancer at age 10 before becoming one of Hollywood’s top music-minded executives. Ryan jumped at the chance to make a wine for the grandmother he never met, using grapes from two of his favorite vineyards to do so.
All sales of the $70 bottle go to The City of Hope, a cancer center with locations all over Southern California.
