FAIRFIELD — Sales of a new, local wine will benefit Meals on Wheels of Solano County.
Galvan Family Cellars of Green Valley, Wooden Valley Winery of Suisun Valley and Chef Peter Halikas of Mankas Steakhouse in Suisun Valley are behind the endeavor. They are releasing Mankas Steakhouse County Line Cuvee, a red wine that is 58 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 28 percent Zinfandel and 14 percent Malbec aged in French oak barrels.
For every bottle sold, $10 will go to Meals on Wheels. There are 100 cases produced.
“We’re looking at getting a substantial amount of money when everything comes through,” said Cathy Hall, executive director of Meals on Wheels of Solano County.
Meals on Wheel uses about 145 volunteers to deliver about 650 meals each weekday to senior centers and to seniors at home. It has an annual budget of about $900,000.
Halikas has made County Line Cuvee the house red wine at Mankas Steakhouse, Hall said. People may purchase it by the glass or bottle at the restaurant at 2522 Mankas Corner Road in Suisun Valley. The restaurant can be reached at 425-3207.
Wooden Valley Winery is also selling the wine, with Galvan Family Cellars in-between tasting rooms, Hall said. The winery is located at 4756 Suisun Valley and can be reached at 864-0730.
“I see this as such an amazing community effort,” Hall said.
