STORIES THAT INSPIRE A BETTER WORLD

Cheers to the wine that feeds hungry people

Martin_MonteFriends Martin Barrett and Monte Regier share a passion for good wine and worthy causes. They combined both to create Sozo, the wine that feeds hungry people.

It all began when Monte returned home after spending a year volunteering with his family on a hospital ship in West Africa. Over glasses of wine, he told Martin about all the hungry families he’d seen and how just a few dollars could feed them for a week.

“You’re telling me that (what I paid for) this glass of wine could feed somebody?” asked Martin, who had once owned a winery in Oregon.

Sozo – Greek for “to save one from perishing” – was born.

The friends-turned-business partners wanted to produce great wine cost effectively, so they partnered with renowned winemaker Cheryl Jones to buy juice from many different wineries.  With no winery of their own and no storefront – Sozo is sold only to restaurants and online at sozofriends.com – they are able to donate 10 percent of all sales to some 50 nonprofit organizations.
