José and Francisco Blanco of Viña Callejuela have bottled a specially labelled Manzanilla en rama to help raise funds for Afanas, a local non-profit organisation dedicated to helping the mentally handicapped. Afanas has day centres which take some of the strain off families, but this worthy cause is always in need of financial support. The Manzanilla is available now in Sanlúcar.
