The genesis of our name:
Caritas: charity (syn. philanthropy), an affection for giving to humanity [Latin]
Vin: wine [French] Caritas + Vin: blending wine with philanthropy— Carivintâs
Blending wine with Philanthropy
We started the winery with three things in mind: to do something we enjoy and love; make a decent living; and give back to the community. You’ll notice the art on our labels is of animals and various wildlife scenes. These are all paintings of rescued animals and treasured or endangered environs. We are affiliated with non-profit groups such as Best Friends Animal Society, Return to Freedom, and many other animal shelters and support groups around the country. A portion of our profits are donated to these groups every year.
"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated" --Gandhi
