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 OUR 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, Shannon Green, our Wine Club & Event Coordinator selected Savin’ Juice Medical Dog Rescue as the featured charity. Our 2016 Quailhurst Vineyard Pinot Noir is sourced from the Chehalem Mountains AVA and the very first Single Vineyard Pinot Noir to be made in our portfolio back in 2003.

WHY SHANNON CHOSE SAVIN’ JUICE MEDICAL DOG RESCUE:

“Being a voice for the voiceless is something I’ve always been drawn to.  Animals have filled my heart from a young age, and had it not been for my fear of blood, I wanted to be a veterinarian. Over the years I have seen things I never thought possible and though extremely difficult for me to witness, animal welfare has become one of my biggest missions on this earth.

It’s important that we all give back in some way. Rescues such as Savin’ Juice are important because they focus on the ones who have been dumped when they needed their humans the most.  While I’ll never understand why people abandon their animals, I have been inspired to see the outpouring of love by those who care and recognize this to be a problem in our society.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your support to this cause and for helping to make a difference.  That, I can raise a glass to! ”
