Franklin Wine Club Latest Wine – Unity
100% of the proceeds go to charitable causes

100% of the proceeds of this wine are donated to organizations focused on helping Black and under-served communities to thrive in the world of wine through the work of selected charity organizations, including the Association of African American Vintners Scholarship Fund and Wine Unify. This is a limited production wine and only 112 cases were produced. Due to the 100% donation, sales of Unity will not qualify for commissionable volume. However, to recognize your efforts supporting the worthy cause, we will triple the personal volume credited to the Ambassador. (0% CV / 300% PV).

What Unity Signifies: Love, Hope, Unity, Diversity, Equality… These are the guiding principles of our JCB & Boisset Collection of wines, where we believe the world of wine exists to unite us –across the table and across the world. We are committed to creating the most inclusive, passionate and inspiring community in the world of wine. This wine, harmonious and balanced on the palate, represents this vision and hope.
