Wine Industry Representatives Rally to Send Support to Chile

Call for public donations in Canada and the USA to support Chile in crisis

VANCOUVER, March 4 /CNW/ - Although Wines of Chile reported late yesterday that the impact to the wine industry from the February 27th 8.8 magnitude earthquake and ensuing tsunami was minimal, parts of Chile are greatly impacted and the need for aid is real and immediate.
