Currahee Vineyards, located in Toccoa, Georgia has a long association with the US Army’s 1/506 Red Currahee Battalion. This unit fought alongside Michael Monsoor and his teammates in SEAL Team Three, Delta Platoon on 29 September 2006 when Michael Monsoor sacrificed his life and saved numerous others.
The Currahee Vineyards has produced and bottled a custom sparking wine to commemorate the sacrifice of Michael Monsoor and the commissioning of the USS MICHAEL MONSOOR. This limited run of sparkling wine will be offered for sale at the Friday evening Chairman’s reception (an invitation only event) and also offered on the Currahee Vineyards Website (http://www.curraheevineyards.com/) for those who are not attending the Friday event.
The commissioning committee thanks the Currahee Vineyard for their donation of this sparkling wine from which all proceeds will support endeavors like scholarships for Navy personnel as specified by Mrs. Sally Monsoor.
