Walking Wine Warriors Offer ‘Sole’ Support

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A team of Southern California wine makers is performing an amazing “feet” to support their cause.

Peter Estremo is the area manager of Barefoot Wine, and on April 26, he’ll be leading Team Barefoot as they strip off their shoes and head to San Diego to tackle Walk MS, a five kilometer walk to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis.

Estremo’s 50-person barefoot brigade hopes to raise $15,000, and, with a booth serving champagne cocktails and maybe even a foot masseuse, his wine warriors will live it up after the charity trot.

Estremo also has plans to paint his feet purple to match the wine brand’s logo, but he’s not putting his foot down on the barefoot rule.

He says, “Flip flops are acceptable. I don’t want to make anyone’s feet bleed.”

Estremo’s mom and aunt, who both have MS, will join him on the walk, though he isn’t making them take off their shoes.
