On September 23, 2020, Adventist Health Lodi Memorial Hospital partnered with LangeTwins Family Winery in Lodi, California to distribute 400 gift boxes to all local nurses. Each gift box contained food, products and two bottles of fermented wine. That’s a total of 800 bottles. The LangeTwins Family Winery does not make or sell unfermented wine. All of their products contain between 12% and 19% alcohol.
Local Fox News 40 reported this unfortunate news about our partnership with the winery and our wine distribution effort:
“The winery partnered with the Adventist Health Lodi Memorial’s foundation to provide more than 400 gift boxes for National Nurses Week.” 
National Nurses Week is usually celebrated in May; but due to the pandemic, it was scheduled for this week. In the same Fox News story, Marissa Lange, president of LangeTwins Family Winery in Lodi, California said that:
“She hopes the gift boxes full of donated snacks, products and bottles of LangeTwins wines show their gratitude to nurses.” 
The brand of wine given away by Adventist Health Lodi Memorial Hospital was the “2018 Chenin Blanc – Prince Vineyard.” These bottles contain a 12% alcohol content level,  which is more than twice as much as regular beer. Beer contains around 5%. According to LangeTwin Winery, each of their wines have a unique, individual fermentation process:
“Each vintage, we gently guide our estate grown fruit through fermentation, preferring to allow natural winemaking to highlight the true expression of our vineyards. This creates individual wines, each with a unique story.” 
In the video above, you will see another “church” institution abandoning the Bible. We are also abandoning our longstanding opposition to alcohol. We used to vigorously preach abstinence. We used to preach temperance and oppose intoxicating drinks. We used to rebuke these great evils and call drunkards to repentance. Now, we are helping to distribute this deadly poison.
“This Scripture pictures the work of those who manufacture and who sell intoxicating liquor. Their business means robbery. For the money they receive no useful equivalent is returned. Every dollar they add to their gains has brought a curse to the spender. Every year millions upon millions of gallons of intoxicating liquors are consumed. Millions upon millions of dollars are spent in buying wretchedness, poverty, disease, degradation, lust, crime, and death. For the sake of gain, the liquor dealer deals out to his victims that which corrupts and destroys mind and body. He entails on the drunkard’s family poverty and wretchedness” (Temperance, p. 28).
“What a terrible account liquor sellers will have to meet in the great day of God! In the books of heaven a record is kept of every tempting glass held out by man to his fellow-man, to forge the chains of an appetite which makes him mad” (Signs of the Times, July 4, 1900).
The sad reality is that we are now in partnership with the “manufacturers of intoxicating” drinks. We have some worthless leaders who are in bed with the alcohol industry while running our institutions. How is this even possible? This situation in Lodi, California is just plain evil. They are leading their nurses and other souls to perdition.
One day they will have to give an account for this wickedness, along with their superiors who do nothing to stop this. There is no promise of salvation or promise of the Latter Rain for those who do not repent of this; because, as partners with the “manufacturers of intoxicating” drinks, we are under the same judgment. Unless we see our folly and seek the Lord through confession, God will not even hear our prayers.
“When ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you; yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood … Those who sell intoxicating liquor to their fellow-men come under this reproof” (Review and Herald, May 8, 1894).
“And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you. If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.” Malachi 2:1, 2.
