The Jorge Posada Foundation Launches Cinco Anillos (Five Rings) Sangria
NEW YORK, June 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — The Jorge Posada Foundation, created by All Star Yankee catcher Jorge Posada and his wife Laura, will soon launch Cinco Anillos Sangria. Translated from the Spanish as Five Rings, the Cinco Anillos brand symbolizes the five World Series championships captured by the catcher.
“Both Laura and I have always had an interest in fine wines and it seemed a natural outgrowth for us to have a highly specialized sangria wine as the first product under the Cinco Anillos brand,” says Jorge Posada. “We thought this would be a good fit for us as we had an opportunity to create a specialty branded wine.” A variety of other fine products will also be developed under the Cinco Anillos brand with a portion of the proceeds going to the foundation.
Produced in Spain and bursting with vibrant notes of a hot Spanish summer, the refreshing sangria is priced to be affordable at under $10 a bottle. Alone or with fruit, Cinco Anillos Sangria is a refreshing blend of red wine, citrus fruit flavors, and a special spice extract – add sliced peaches, apples, and oranges or other fruits for a delicious aperitif or drink alone as a perfect pairing with grilled meat.
“We see Cinco Anillos as a wonderful opportunity to raise additional funds for our foundation and programs,” says Laura Posada who heads the day-to-day operations as the foundation’s President. “This additional funding will go to benefit our Mentorship Network as well as the support of medical centers around the country that are working with families that have been affected by craniosynostosis and educating the public and healthcare professionals about craniosynostosis.”
The Jorge Posada Foundation provides support to families and children who are affected by the medical condition, craniosynostosis, a birth defect that causes an abnormally shaped skull. The foundation is dedicated to creating greater public awareness, outreach, and education about the importance of early diagnosis and available treatment for craniosynostosis.
