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.


What is the Dobbes Charitable Giving Program?

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, Matt Daley, our Tasting Room Manager, selected Homeward Bound Pets as the featured charity. Read his story below then follow the link to purchase our 2014 Momtazi Vineyard Pinot Noir to support this cause.


Why Matt Daley chose Homeward Bound Pets:
I greatly appreciate the opportunity to select Homeward Bound Pets as our 3rd quarter charitable beneficiary. They are Oregon’s first no-kill shelter helping cats and dogs in the McMinnville/Yamhill County for over 40 years. I actually rescued Frankie, one of my cats, from Homeward Bound Pets 1.5 years ago. I knew after the first time of seeing him, Frankie was coming home – he’s my orange tabby pal. For me, rescuing animals has been life changing and fulfilling. I wasn’t always an animal person, but after meeting Kuvi, my partner Rebecca’s 7 year old female long-haired cat, I have a knew found soft spot for our furry friends. Today, we have four cats: MacGruber, Chahlie, Kuvi and Frankie – each so different and irreplaceable. They truly make our house a home and bring so much laughter and joy to our lives!

Thank you to Homeward Bound Pets and all the no-kill shelters around the world. All animals are unique and special, and I believe there is a perfect owner for each and every one of them. Don’t forget to purchase the 2014 Momtazi Vineyard Pinot Noir during your next visit to the tasting room!
