Wine Relief 2011

Wine Relief Comic Relief

We made it past the magical £150,000 mark and in some style, all thanks to you, our customers. We are very proud to say that Farr Vintners has now raised a staggering £174,300 for Wine Relief, the wine industry’s contribution to Comic Relief. This contribution accounts for nearly half the amount of the total raised by the entire wine trade! In the month of March, we committed to donate £20 for every case of wine that we sold, and on certain wines, we doubled the donation to £40. 7529 cases (£20 donation) and 593 cases (£40 donation) later, March is over and an extremely worthy cause is far better off.

Jancis has said:
"“The fantastic Farr Vintners have made all the difference to Wine Relief 2011, showing that wine traders at the top of the tree have a big heart. It would be great to see even more fine wine involvement next time, in 2013.”

However, we are very aware that we could not have achieved such an amazing contribution without the support of our ever-loyal customers, so thank you to all of you from us, and from Wine Relief.
