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.
CREATING NEW WAYS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE:
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! To kick off 2021, Winery Sales Ambassador Toni Kidd has chosen a 1% for the Planet beneficiary during this quarter. 10% of all sales of 2018 Grand Assemblage Syrah will directly benefit Portland Urban Beekeepers.
WHY TONI KIDD CHOSE PORTLAND URBAN BEEKEEPERS:
"When I was a child, I was terrified of bees of any kind. As I have become older, bees, especially honeybees, have become a symbol of community, brightness and personal power, all things that I have come to value. I also appreciate that bees are an important part of life on Earth and particularly for my chosen career, wine sales. Colony Collapse Disorder became a serious issue in the last 10 years and I hope through this research, we can learn and solve this seemingly benign issue that has potentially devastating impact on our food sources around the world!"
