It is a little known fact that San Fransisco boasts some of California’s best wines, much like many do not know that San Fransisco was also home to one of the first openly gay politicians in the United States, Harvey Milk. And thus, I created a wine which pays tribute to the memory of Harvey Milk.
This deep, rich, Cabernet Sauvignon has a strong backbone of tartness, as strong as the determined Harvey Milk, whom fought for equal rights in San Francisco as well as gay rights nationwide. In particular, the half full bottle of milk, represents Harvey’s positive attitude and take on life, despite his many obstacles. Seeing as Harvey was environmentally conscious, the box that houses the wine was created out of one sheet of board with no glue.
As Harvey Milk once said, “I have tasted freedom. I will not give up that which I have tasted. I have a lot more to drink.”
