It is our firmly held viewpoint that wine is meant to connect people: to a vineyard block, to a growing season, to a winemaker, and most importantly to each other. It is with this philosophy in mind that we have decided to donate $1 from every bottle sold to the Georgia Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation via Grayton’s Guardians. This is not a marketing strategy or a publicity event, but instead a core tenet of what we consider to be a sustainable business model. Our goal is to not only create wines of unsurpassed quality, but we want our consumers and members to know that they are contributing to a force for greater good as well.

The mission of the Georgia Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment, and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care.

For more information on Grayton’s Guardians, please read below:

“At 10 days old, our son, Grayton Pinkston, was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) in October of 2015.   CF is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time.  While this news came in the form of tragedy, we’ve been overwhelmed by the love and support we have received from so many. 

Grayton’s Guardians was created by our family of friends like Jeremy Carter to raise awareness, and do everything in our power to find a cure for this life threatening disease.  Our efforts go directly to the CF Foundation who strive tirelessly to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment, and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care for the over 60,000 suffering from this disease worldwide.

On behalf of Grayton, our family, and everyone who works so hard to support Grayton’s Guardians and the mission of the CF Foundation, we’d like to thank Tarpon Cellars for their generosity and support in helping Grayton and others with CF ​​add more tomorrows."
