Darcie Kent Vineyards recently presented a $20,000 donation check to Valley Humane Society in Pleasanton, funds generated from sales of the Livermore winery's 2019 Dog Day Cabernet.

Promoted as "the bottle that benefits," the special wine has been sold in eight Costco stores in Northern California with $5 from each purchase earmarked to support the lifesaving and life-enriching programs of Valley Humane Society.

The amount donated last month represents only half of the Dog Day Cabernet originally distributed; the other half is still available for purchase at Costcos in Livermore, Danville, Concord, Fremont, Tracy, Manteca, Almaden and Santa Clara. Look for the distinctive red label featuring Kent's beloved dogs Shepherd and Brunello, plus the nonprofit's logo.

We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
