Pinnacle Ridge Winery in Lansdale is joining a statewide effort to fight hunger during November. The “Hops & Vines for Hunger” campaign involves craft breweries and wineries across Pennsylvania, writes Paul Vigna for PennLive.com. Donations will go toward hunger food banks and nutrition education.
Carl Helrich, owner and winemaker at Pinnacle Ridge, said that 50 percent of the proceeds from tasting fees will be allocated specifically to PA Eats. It’s a nonprofit organization that creates nutrition education resources.
“We can all agree that food, clothing, and shelter are the fundamentals we all need,” Helrich said. “Hops & Vines for Hunger helps raise awareness about Pennsylvanians who are food-insecure while raising funds for hunger relief and education.”
The Lansdale tasting room opened earlier this year.
The original Pinnacle Ridge served the Kutztown area for 25 years until it relocated to Montgomery County. Helrich’s other wineries, Allegro Winery and Cadenza Vineyards in York County, will also be participating.
