Wine is about coming together

It’s about family, friends, ideas, conversation and sharing. At Dobbes Family Estate, we are committed to giving back to our community as it’s an integral part of who we are as individuals, and therefore, an integral part of our business. Our Charitable Giving Program was developed to allow everyone on the Dobbes Team the opportunity to support a deserving cause near and dear to their heart. During that quarter, a wine is featured in the tasting room and online and 10 percent of its sales are donated to the chosen charity.

Each quarter, a different employee has the opportunity to select a cause that has special meaning to them. During that quarter, we feature a select wine in the tasting room and online to donate 10% of its sales to the chosen charity. This quarter, Sarah Pearson, our VP of Marketing and Sales, selected Direct Relief as the featured charity. Our 2014 Symonette Vineyard Pinot Noir is sourced from the Eola-Amity Hills.

Following a year defined by humanitarian crises and natural disasters of unprecedented scale, I’ve chosen Direct Relief as my charitable organization. This organization is dedicated to improving the lives of all people impacted by natural disaster regardless of politics, religion, or ability to pay. I’ve unfortunately seen the devastation that wildfire has caused here in Oregon, as well as in California. With an increase in wildfire activity in recent years, Direct Relief has led several wildfire response efforts across the U.S. Since 2007, Direct Relief has responded to wildfires across Western U.S., including California, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Oregon, and Texas, as well as globally.

Direct Relief’s donation policy ensures that 100 percent of all designated contributions for specific programs or emergency responses are used only on expenses related to supporting that program or response. Join us in supporting this worthy cause by purchasing our 2014 Symonette Vineyard Pinot Noir.
