Want to drink wine and support a great cause while you do it? The team at Vinomofo has you covered. The online wine cellar has just launched its limited edition Homeless Grapes Project McLaren Vale Shiraz, and it's donating 100 percent of proceeds to Australians who are sleeping rough.

The 2017 Shiraz comes courtesy of the Penny's Hill winery in South Australia's McLaren Vale. It goes on sale on June 17 at $20 per bottle, sold in a case of six, with only 200 cases available. The sale of just one case can provide a home starter pack for a couple moving from the street to the home and for a hot breakfast and lunch for a week for someone doing it tough.

Through the sale of 200 cases of the wine, the project will be able to provide housing for 570 clients, over 40,000 meals and 3000 appointments with nurses.

The Homeless Grapes initiative has been running since 2015 and has already raised more than $100,000 for charity.

"Homelessness is a community issue that can be solved by the community and initiatives like Homeless Grapes," said Vinomofo co-founder Andre Eikmeier. "We can raise money for the front line to help make a real difference. And importantly, we change our attitudes."

To find out more about the Homeless Grapes initiative and to buy a couple of bottles, head to vinomofo.com. The Homeless Grapes Project wine will go on sale Sunday, June 17.
