Cellar Rat (1701 Baltimore, 816-221-9463) is pouring wine for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Crossroads store is donating a dollar to charity for every rosé wine sold in October and has teamed up with two world-class wineries to offer free tastings. The first tasting is of Cline Cellars stock, offered today from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Then, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, the drinks will come from Cono Sur. Cline, which has donated $75,000 to breast-cancer support organizations, is a Sonoma Valley winery known for zinfandels. (All of its whites are excellent, if slightly sweet.) Cono Sur makes awesome Chileans that are a bargain — Forbes named its Pinot Noir a best wine under $15. For each mixed case you buy from either winery, there's a discount, and Cellar Rat will donate $12 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
