The “Thin Blue Line” represents the officers who stand between an ordered society and potential chaos. The officers put their lives on the line each and everyday to protect our towns and cities. In December of 2012, Passaggio Wines proudly unveiled the UNMARKED label paying homage to my law enforcement days.
This label celebrates the selfless work of men and women who have dedicated their lives to the service of law enforcement. Now, eight years after I left my law enforcement career, it humbles me and makes me very proud to give back to those men and women who still hold a special place in my heart.
When you buy the Passaggio UNMARKED 2011 Pinot Noir, 5% of sales will go to my local law enforcement charity, The 100 Club of Contra Costa County. This charity supports families of fallen officers. Follow your passion and help me make a difference in the lives of these families.
