GIVING BACK: The name of this wine comes from our lovely daughter Janaina. She was adopted from Brazil at 8 years old and is truly one of our biggest blessings in life. Sensacao means “sensational” in Portuguese and reflects her well. Before entering the Peace Corps she spent time with Royal Family Kids, which takes foster children to camp for a week each summer. $1 from every bottle of Janaina Sensacao Red sold goes to support Royal Family Kids and send them to camp.
