America's favorite pastime, baseball, has teamed up with American's passion for wine, all for a good cause. Inspired by personal tragedies involving friends and family with cancer, the owners of VinLozano Imports have teamed up with Charity Hop to create wine labels featuring names and likenesses of\u00a0Boston Red Sox players. This has culminated in Longball Vineyards with\u00a0wines based\u00a0on Manny Ramirez, Curt Shilling and Tim Wakefield. Each have lent their name to a\u00a0label, with about 75% of the profits going to\u00a0a charity of their choosing. The wines are all certified organic, and boast a fair wage certification for the vineyard workers.\r\n\r\nManny being Merlot 2005 Lontue Valley, Chile\r\n\r\nManny Ramirez has chosen the local Miami charity CHARLEE (Children Have All Rights, Legal, Educational an\u00a0Emotional) to benefit from his wine. CHARLEE provides "therapeutic, residential, and supportive services to abused, abandoned, and neglected children within a safe environment in a community-based continuum of care." www.charleeprogram.org\r\n\r\nSchilling Schardonnay 2006 Chardonnay Lontue Valley, Chile\r\n\r\nCurt Schilling wine supports his Curt's Pitch for ALS, which he founded along with his wife, Shonda.
