Valdelacierva Rosé 2016 from Hispanobodegas was the wine from Rioja chosen for the frundraising event “Fashion for Relief”. The event took place yesterday at the Mandelieu Hangar in Cannes. It had the support of many personalities, from the fashion, cinema and music industries and important companies, such as Uma Thurman, Donatella Versace, Heidi Klum, Kate Moss, Lewis Hamilton or the queen Rania of Jordan. “Fashion for Relief” has as main objective raising funds for several humanitarian and environmental causes, a work that the model has been developing from the 2005.
Fashion For Relief was founded as reply to the Katrina hurricane and it mobilized the model´s friends and the Campbell´s designers to raise funds during the New York Fashion Week. In the following years, it has continued raising funds for the victims of other natural disasters (the Haiti’s earthquake, the tsunami in Japan) and it has also worked with other international charity organizations to raise awareness about the women´s health problems. But its growing approach to the millions of children trapped in humanitarian crises around the world is the purpose of this last edition, whose raised funds are going to be allocated for “Save the Children”.
Valdelacierva Rosé 2016, the wine chosen for the cocktail of the fundraising dinner, has not only co-stared with the best models and actors, it has also co-stared with the best champagnes and wines of the world. This rosé from Valdelacierva, the last one arrived to the Rioja winery of the Hispanobodegas group, got the attention of the fashion personalities because of its uniqueness. It is salmon colored, pale, with an elegant and expressive nose with aromas of fruit, prevailing the strawberry and the peach. On the palate is sweet, voluminous, well-balanced and it has a long and fresh aftertaste.
