Covid-19 Heroes

Wine merchants all over the country are continuing to work with their communities to say thank you to local heroes.

Independents who signed up to receive two cases of wine from Hatch Mansfield for this very purpose are able to express their appreciation with a gift of a bottle of Vidal Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand or Errazuriz Wild Ferment Chilean Pinot Noir.
