SEATTLE, Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Nationally distributed HOUSE WINE, a quality-value wine leader, has partnered up with the national nonprofit Building Homes for Heroes to help wounded or disabled U.S. service members returning from Afghanistan and Iraq realize their dreams of home ownership. For every case of HOUSE RED sold in the U.S., $1 is donated to the cause.
"We're delighted to positively impact this worthwhile and fitting cause," said Andrew Browne, Chief Executive Officer of HOUSE parent company Precept Wine. "By extension we're helping an often marginalized segment of our heroes, and there are thousands in dire need of homes and permanent housing for themselves and their families."
Building Homes for Heroes is a national non-profit, non-partisan 501(c)(3) organization. Since 2006, it has been at the forefront of making a significant difference in the lives of the severely wounded men and women of the military forces of the United States. It builds homes from the ground up or modifies existing homes to meet the needs of the brave men and women who have selflessly served our country. These mortgage-free homes not only help to remove the family's financial burden, they help to restore the individual's freedom, and enable the veteran to lead a more independent and productive civilian life.

"Building Homes for Heroes is very pleased that HOUSE WINE is showing its patriotism by giving back to the men and women of the military," said Andrew McClure, Chief Operating Officer of Building Homes for Heroes. "With help from organizations like HOUSE WINE, we're able to show our appreciation and make life a little brighter for one of these fine men or women, and their families."
Sold throughout the U.S., HOUSE RED wine is an easy-drinking, award-winning Merlot- and Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant red blend whose grapes are sourced from the Columbia Valley American Viticultural Area (Washington State). The current 2010 vintage has been lauded in Wine Spectator as a "Great American Value" and Wine Enthusiast recommended it as a Best Buy. Learn more about HOUSE WINE at www.originalhousewine.com
