Wines of Chile earthquake fund to go direct to affected wineries

Published:  25 March, 2010

Wines of Chile UK, has confirmed that donations to the Wines of Chile Earthquake Appeal will be sent to a designated fund.

The Levantando Chile Fund, has been specifically set up to help those employed within the Chilean wine industry and their families, said Wines of Chile director, Michael Cox.

"Tragically there has been some loss of life and serious injuries reported within the wine community but mercifully these numbers are small," said Cox.

"The welfare of employees and their homesteads remains the primary concern of all wineries and this fund will aid the rebuilding and reconstruction in the worst affected wine areas."

He added the Levantando Chile has been set up by a non-profit making organisation called NESsT and Wines of Chile.
