Local nonprofit Jack’s Helping Hand is partnering with Biddle Ranch Vineyard to create a limited edition wine to raise money for children with cancer and special needs.

Biddle Ranch Vineyard will donate a portion of proceeds from all 425 cases of its 2014 pinot grigio wine to the nonprofit organization, according to a news release. It will be available until the end of the year in the winery tasting room, at Biddleranch.com or in participating local restaurants and stores.

The groups also created a custom label for the wine that incorporates the hand and heart images featured in the Jack's Helping Hand logo. The bottle will be debuted at the annual Jackʼs Helping Hand Barbecue Celebration at Santa Margarita Ranch on Saturday.

Biddle Ranch Vineyard — owned by Mark and Patty Woolpert, Led and Anne Fortini, John and Tracy Ronca and Roy and Linda Rawlings — was established in 2012, according to the news release.
