Newport Beach, CA, May 7, 2020 – CureDuchenne, a leading global nonprofit focused on funding and finding a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, is announcing the Virtual Napa Wine Series (VNWS) as an addition to their already successful in-person Napa Wine Series events that take place throughout the country.
The VNWS will allow a few couples or individuals at each private event to connect with some of the most exclusive and high-end vintners from Napa Valley. The initial vintners include, Darioush, Vineyard 29, Tuck Beckstoffer Estate, Chateau Montelena, Dana Estates, DuMol and Quintessa Estate.
The VNWS is unique in that it brings multiple high-end Napa Valley vintners together with a focus on hospitality for a cause. Each vintner is donating a portion of the proceeds generated by wine sales to CureDuchenne. The VNWS creates an opportunity for vintners to support the Duchenne community, and for wine lovers to support the Napa Valley community as they come together over wine.
“We’ve really enjoyed our partnerships with the vintners over the years of our Napa Wine Series events, and extending these partnerships to virtual events is a great next step in the evolution of the Napa Wines Series”, said Debra Miller, CEO and Founder of CureDuchenne. Miller added, “when you get this many of the finest wines coming together to support and fundraise for a great cause, it really brings the community together”.
Each virtual event is tailored and personalized for the vintner and the audience is deliberately kept to a limited number so attendees have the opportunity to engage with vintners, other team members from the winery and even the wine makers themselves for exclusive and intimate conversations just like they would if they were at the winery in person.
CureDuchenne is recognized as a global leader in research, patient care and innovation for improving and extending the lives of those with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. As the leading genetic killer of young boys, Duchenne affects more than 300,000 individuals living today.
