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. Since 2004, our charitable giving program has given our individual employees the opportunity to select a cause that has special meaning to them, to which we donate 10% of sales of a select wine during that quarter.

Giving back to our community and the earth is at the heart of who we are at Dobbes Family Estate. As a team, we're always looking for ways to improve and broaden our impact in the community we serve. That’s why we are thrilled to announce that we’ve partnered with 1% for the Planet, a nonprofit organization that supports thousands of environmental and social justice focused nonprofits. 



We’ve committed to donating 1% of our gross sales each year to this organization’s approved nonprofit partners. The best part? We can determine how our money is allocated – so that means we can still continue with our employee driven, quarterly Charitable Giving Program! The even BETTER than the best part? ALL your purchases, not just our quarterly wines and Elements, will be supporting the planet - all year long! Laboratory Technician Danie Lafayette selected a 1% for the Planet beneficiary for this quarter. 10% of all sales of 2019 DUX Vineyard Pinot Noir will directly benefit Ecotrust

Ecotrust’s mission is to inspire fresh thinking that creates economic opportunity, social equity, and environmental wellbeing. Their goal is to foster a natural model of development that creates more resilient communities, economies, and ecosystems here and around the world. 


WHY Danie Lafayette CHOSE Ecotrust:

"I chose this foundation because I believe that social, economic, and environmental issues often stem from a lack of equity and more negatively impact the poor and people of color. Ecotrust focuses on the environment, the economy and people while putting equity at the heart of it all. They are committed to ‘examining the roles of race and class in defining opportunities, and place a priority on dismantling systems of oppression’, all while supporting local businesses, protecting our wild lands, building community, and strengthening food security in the Pacific Northwest."
