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, Chris Luby, our Cellar Technician & Vineyard Liaison, selected Wilsonville Community Sharing as the featured charity. Read his story below then follow the link to purchase our 2017 Rosé of Pinot Noir to support this cause.

Why Chris Luby chose Wilsonville Community Sharing:                                                                                                                                                                                                       I appreciate the opportunity to select Wilsonville Community Sharing, which provides food, utilities, prescription, and housing assistance to its residents, as our quarterly charity from which to donate a portion of the proceeds from our 2017 Rosé of Pinot Noir .

According to the Oregon Food Bank, 553,000 of Oregon residents—14.6% of the population and 194,000 of whom are children—are food-insecure.  As Karen, my wife, and I transition from raising children to an emptier nest, we are pleased to contribute our newfound time and energy to the WCS pantry, supporting those in our community of nearly 20 years that are supporting themselves and their children, and often their parents and grandchildren.

Wilsonville Community Sharing is a branch of the Oregon Food Bank and, as such, is allowed to buy food at a discount, which the charitable donation will greatly support.
