Sierra Batuco Sauvignon Blanc, Maule Valley, Chile

Carmen Gran Reserva Carmenere, Apalta Vineyard, Chile

The spicy chili flavors call for a cooling off of Sauvignon Blanc .

If you have a preference for red wines, choose  a wine with a boldness to match the spice and texture.

AMI's  Core Values
Celebrating 25 years 
 
At the beginning of 2014 Thierry Leduc, Chairman of AMI, reflected on the success of his team. This led him to think about what the core values of the company are. He came up with 9 of these core values and incorporated some of his favorite quotes to express them. The values are rooted in humility. Being humble and passionate about what we do is the foundation of AMI's success.  Throughout 2015, AMI will be sharing these values in upcoming newsletters.

Supporting Breast Cancer  Awareness   

           

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer awareness is an effort to raise awareness and reduce the stigma of breast cancer through education on symptoms and treatment. Supporters hope that greater knowledge will lead to earlier detection of breast cancer, which is associated with higher long-term survival rates, and that money raised for breast cancer will produce a reliable, permanent cure.

Two of our winery partners are longtime supporters of this important cause.

 

Delicato Family's HandCraft Artisan wines has contributed over $200,000 over the past 2 years to support breast cancer awareness, prevention and research, with HandCraft founder and third-generation wine proprietor, Cheryl Indelicato leading the charge. "Walk the Walk" is an extension of Indelicato's personal involvement in the breast cancer walking community. This year marks her third year leading a group (Team HandCraft) in multiple breast cancer awareness walks across the country, including a 3-Day (60 mile) race of the cure

 

For the past 13 years, Sutter Home has been dedicated to supporting the cause of breast cancer awareness, treatment and education through the Sutter Home for Hope campaign. Each year, thousands of people across the country have supported Sutter Home for Hope - by participating in its programs like Text for Hope, Capsules for Hope, and Walk for Hope; sharing their personal stories and photos on the Sutter Home for Hope website; or simply wearing pink Sutter Home for Hope jerseys and ribbons to continue raising awareness. The Sutter Home Facebook page, which has over 445,000 fans, and Twitter pages, will go all-pink in celebration of breast cancer awareness month in October.
