Taking Care of Each Other
Vital Wines produces wines that complete a circle. All profits go to the SOS Clinic, a free, non-profit health care clinic in the Walla Walla area dedicated to helping people get the healthcare that they both need and deserve with no questions asked. Winemaking and vineyard work is both physical and seasonal, making it a prime industry for this kind of care. At Vital, it is not only our mission to close this loop, but also our pleasure. Those that provide us with beautiful wines throughout the Walla Walla valley can get better and free healthcare and those of us who bring these wines home can do so with pleasure on the palate and the soul.
