Cheers to a good cause! The Bachelor’s Colton Underwood is using his charity, The Colton Underwood Legacy Foundation, to sell wine to honor those affected by cystic fibrosis, and to raise money for more research and care.
The vino is called 65 Roses, and the name was inspired by a cystic fibrosis survivor who had a funny way of pronouncing the disease. “The Colton Underwood Legacy Foundation empowers and inspires people living with cystic fibrosis to live fully and dream big in spite of their obstacles,” read the description on the organization’s website. “The story behind our new wine, ’65 Roses,’ rosé dates back decades to a young CF warrior who, when hearing the name of his disease for the first time, pronounced cystic fibrosis as ’65 Roses.’ Enjoy our wine and know that each purchase helps support and celebrate people who are fighting cystic fibrosis with everything they’ve got.” This wine’s name also totally suits the 27-year-old Bachelor perfectly, considering he’s known for handing out roses on the show.
You can start placing orders now, and they will ship out this first week of February. Each bottle costs $28.99 and can be bought by the bottle or the case, which carries 12 bottles. Shipment is offered to 41 out of 50 states, with special process shipping to Alabama.
The site also includes details on the type of wine you can expect to get. “A unique rosé-style Vin Gris of Pinot Gris,” reads the description. “Although usually thought of as a white varietal, Pinot Gris grapes turn greyish blue as they age on the vine, producing just a subtle pink hue in its juice when put through a longer skin-contact press cycle. With lively acidity, this wine offers tones of sweet, ripe peach and nectarine while finishing refreshingly crisp yet delightfully silky.” Sounds good to us, and it’ll taste even sweeter because it’s for a good cause!
This season of The Bachelor is expected to wrap up sometime in March. We can totally see the former football player celebrating by drinking 65 Roses with his ladylove.
