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’re a member of 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! Winemaker Doug Vuylsteke selected a 1% for the Planet beneficiary for this quarter. 10% of all sales of 2018 Symonette Vineyard Pinot Noir will directly benefit Wild Salmon Center.
The mission of the Wild Salmon Center is to protect the healthiest and most productive wild salmon ecosystems around the entire Pacific Rim -- as well as the jobs, communities, and other wildlife species that rely on them to thrive.
“Fishing is my favorite hobby, right after making wine of course. I grew up fishing the waters of the Pacific Northwest and continue to do so to this day. The sport connects me to our truly special ecosystem here in the Pacific Northwest. Salmon are such a huge part of our history here in Oregon and today more than ever, their health and preservation are essential to continue to have thriving wildlife and watersheds for generations to come. Please join me and Dobbes Family Estate to protect our Salmon!”
