15% of Red Wine Sales to be Donated to Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital – Plymouth Cardiovascular Services
PLYMOUTH, MASS. (February 5, 2020) – February is known as American Heart Month and Uva Wine Bar, the South Shore’s first and only self-serve wine bar is observing with a month-long “Sip Red for Heart Health” campaign that will benefit Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital – Plymouth’s Cardiovascular Services. Throughout the month of February, Uva will donate 15% of sales from all red wine purchases at Uva to the hospital so they can continue to provide vital resources for Plymouth area patients.
Uva’s co-owner, Michelle Manware also works at BID-Plymouth OB/GYN & Midwifery as a Physician Assistant, and she continuously treats patients who have benefitted from the Cardiovascular Services department at BID.
“American Heart Month, a federally designated event, is an ideal time to remind our community to focus on their hearts and encourage healthy lifestyles,” said Michelle Manware, Uva Wine Bar co-owner. “Studies consistently show that individuals who consume moderate amounts of wine have reduced rates of heart disease. Researchers believe that red wine’s high concentration of polyphenol antioxidants can help reduce your risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and metabolic diseases, so it makes sense for us to donate a portion of our red wine sales to this worthy cause.”
During Uva’s Sip Red for Heart Health campaign, Uva will donate 15% sales from all red wines throughout the month of February. Uva customers can also sign up for Uva’s Merlot Wine Tasting event on February 26, 2020 at Uva Wine Bar. Uva will additionally donate $5 from each ticket purchased to the hospital. Event participants will learn about the merlot grape and sample merlot wines from around the world, with food pairings. Tickets cost $35 can be purchased here.
Uva Wine Bar, located at 46 Main St in Plymouth, Mass. offers 48 different wines from around the world through self-serve WineStations. Customers can get a 1.5 oz. taste, a half glass 3 oz., or a full 6 oz. pour of any of the wines. The wine bar was founded in 2019 by Katy Gaenicke and Michelle Manware who share a passion for wine and decided to open Uva after discovering the self-serve technology while on vacation.
