All purchasers and recipients must be 21 years of age or older and must be home to accept the shipment. (Please note: Chufly ships to all U.S. states except: Ala., Ark., Ariz., Del., Hawaii, Miss., Okla., R.I., Utah) due to shipping restrictions.) Six and 12 bottle packs are also available. These wines are from emerging wine regions with high-impact conservation and sustainable development.

The three-bottle pack includes “1750 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2018,” from Santa Cruz, Bolivia; “Aranjuez Duo Chardonnay | Sauvignon Blanc, 2020,” from Tarija, Bolivia; and “Magnus Merlot | Cabernet Sauvignon, 2016,” also from Tarija, Bolivia

Since 1988, Rainforest Trust has been protecting imperiled tropical habitats and saving endangered species by establishing protected areas in partnership with local organizations and communities around the globe. With its partners, Rainforest Trust has safeguarded more than 37 million acres of vital habitat. The Rainforest Trust Climate Action Fund supports projects that protect forests that cost-effectively store and sequester large quantities of carbon. The goal of Rainforest Trust is to work to permanently lock up 15 billion tons of carbon by 2025.

“Last year, nearly one acre of rainforest was lost every second, which equates to an area the size of Pennsylvania that is simply gone, up in smoke. The biodiversity is lost and the carbon once stored is now contributing to climate change,” said Leslie VanSant, vice president of philanthropy at Rainforest Trust. “Creating and maintaining protected areas is the simplest most cost-effective solution to reduce climate change. Rainforest Trust has been doing just that for nearly 34 years.”
