In remembrance of military members who’ve lost their lives while serving the United States and in honor of the surviving families, Mercer Wine has donated over $15,000 to Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation. Patriotism and service are important threads in the Mercer family fabric. Throughout the family’s history, Mercers have risen to serve and defend the United States of America.
Rob Mercer, owner of Mercer Estates, and Mercer Estates’ Vineyard Manager, John Derrick, know all too well the true meaning of sacrifice. The patriotic leaders planted a special vineyard (BLOCK 93) in honor of the fallen and as a means to give back to programs, such as Children of Fallen Patriots, that benefit those who have served and suffered. The fruit from these vines are used to produce Eagle & Plow, BLOCK 93 Cabernet Sauvignon. All proceeds benefit American servicemen and women, their families, and the survivors of tragic events.
With the average college cost gap totaling $32,000, the need for financial support is significant. Partners continued dedication, in ways ranging from financial support to creating awareness, has helped Fallen Patriots continue to fulfill our mission to ensure a future for surviving military children.
