Cheers to Our Veterans With #CKMondaviHeroes


CK Mondavi and #CKMondaviHeroes 

I am really excited to write this post today. Not only does CK Mondavi offer affordable delicious wine, they honor and support our Veterans. This couldn’t be more important to me as whenever I make a toast it’s usually with my husband, a United States Army Veteran! 

CK Mondavi is run by the legendary Napa Valley wine icon, Peter Mondavi Sr., a World War II veteran. Mr. Mondavi Sr. knows first hand what being a Veteran is all about. He not only served this great Country, but he supports it and encourages others to support American made products as well. 

CK Mondavi is a big supporter of the Intrepid Fallen Heroes fund. In fact, a percentage of each bottle of CK Mondavi wine sold between May – August is donated to Intrepid Fallen Heroes (up to $50,00). Cheers to CK Mondavi and #CKMondaviHeroes!

The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF) is an organization that supports the men and women of the Armed Forces and their families. It is funded entirely by public donations!  IFHF serves U.S. military personnel wounded or killed in service to our nation and their families. For more information, visit

About CK Mondavi 

CK Mondavi is the only American made/grown wine in the “supermarket wine under $10” category. Yep, a great bottle of wine made in the USA for under ten bucks! Cheers! 

Established in the 1940s, CK Mondavi remains a family- owned business that has thrived for four generations to produce fine wines. CK Mondavi wine is sold nationwide in every US state.

Please comment below to share your own story about supporting veterans and/or American-made products. I will select ONE reader to be entered into CK Mondavi’s grand prize drawing by May 15. The grand prize is a $500 donation to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund in the winner’s name!

My Hero, My Husband, Veteran

I am so grateful to my husband for a great number of different things, but especially for the years he spent serving our Country. I am proud to support any organization that recognizes the true sacrifice our Veteran’s have made as well as those that have given their lives for our freedom and the family members that support or have supported them.
