I’ve mentioned the Dog Lover’s Wine Club that features pooch-centered wine labels and donates to dog-helping causes before. Now they’ve become involved with the rescue efforts to rehabilitate the dogs involved in the Michael Vick dogfighting scandal.
The Carivintas Winery Vicktory Dog Wine Collection spans 22 bottles and each label features a work of art portraying one of 22 dogs rescued from NFL player Vick’s kennels. The "Vicktory" dogs now live at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah and ten percent of sales goes to the animal sanctuary.
The portraits of the dogs were painted by artist Cyrus Mejia, one of Best Friends founders. The bottles contain red wine, currently a 2006 Tempranillo, Santa Barbara County but that may change as the series goes on. Individual wines are $40 and the entire 22 label series is $672.
