Water: A Crisis
Just as wine connects us socially and culturally, water connects every aspect of human life. In a business that depends so great on water, we at taste56 feel keenly and deeply conscious that not only would we not have our wine without water, but a healthy and happy life is impossible without clean water. Lack of access to safe drinking water affects 771 million people around the world. The availability of safe water and sanitation can quickly turn problems into potential— unlocking education, work opportunities, and improved health for women, children, and families.
"We believe, through a strategic partnership with Water.org, that taste56 can help contribute to solving this problem while also providing our consumers and employees with a sense of purpose, and the feeling that they are part of a greater good."
- James Fantaci, Founder & CEO
