The Valle Wine and Food Festival 2017 Celebrates a Good Cause
The Valle Wine and Food Festival is also a way to raise money for an organization called Fundación Campesinos. The organization helps the hard working farmers who grow food and crops in the region. The money raised at the Valle Wine and Food Festival will be used in helping the farmers families in terms of providing proper clothes, blankets, improving the living conditions and helping their children receive a formal education.
