Wines for a cause tend to be a tough sell for us wine geeks, mostly because the cause tends to lead, with the wine coming second. But this one is from our friends, the super talented Megan Glaab and her husband Ryan of Ryme Cellars in Sonoma, who make a delicious rosé that we want to drink, first and foremost, and bonus – they donate all proceeds to organizations that support women’s rights. In 2017, believing that social progress cannot be left to its own devices, Megan and Ryan decided to become greater agents of positive change, using their crazy wine skills to raise money. And we can’t think of a better way to support an important cause than imbibing this juice, fresh rosé, with a coppery, herbal tang matched by bright pomegranate and zingy acidy. Drink up, for the women!
