The First Miracle Trust is the social responsibility initiative of Black Elephant Vintners (http://bevintners.co.za). It is recorded that the very first miracle Jesus performed was to turn water into wine at a community wedding celebration, and not just any wine – the best wine! This is a story that is personal, and has a lot to say to us about the value of community and celebrating life. It is also a story that is unconventional and challenged the norms of the day. This is a philosophy and approach that resonates with us.
It is time for us to begin to tell our own stories that celebrate life and community by performing our very own ‘little miracles’. We aim to make a difference in the life of individuals one by one, so that they can experience their own ‘little miracle’ in their lives. Teaming up with selected local partners, firstmiracle.org will use some of the funds donated from making and selling wines to invest in the lives and well-being of individuals and communities in the winelands area of the Western Cape.
Your donation and/or purchase of a bottle of firstmiracle.org wine lets you contribute towards changing someone’s life. Your glass of wine can become someone else’s first ‘little miracle’.
