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 the community with our new charitable wine
This quarter, our Cellar Master, Rachael Fishman has chosen the Wildfire Response and Recovery Fund by the United Way of the Colombia-Willamette as our fourth quarter charitable giving recipient. Sip and support with our 2017 Grand Assemblage Pinot Noir – crafted to represent vintage personality each year, this elegant and classic Willamette Valley Pinot Noir shows soft tannins, medium weight, juicy acid with flavors of loganberry, raspberry, cardamom, dried rose and a touch of complexity from 19% new French oak. 10% of its proceeds over the next 3 months will go to the United Way and their mission to provide displaced families from our recent fires with access to food, shelter, childcare, healthcare and other critical services.
Why RACHAEL chose THE WILDFIRE RESPONSE AND RECOVERY FUND:
"Originally from California, I am no stranger to the impacts of wildfires, but this the first time that I have seen my new home state, Oregon, so dramatically affected. It saddens me to see the families, communities, and the forests I love so much destroyed. So, I chose the Wildfire Response and Recovery Fund by the United Way of the Columbia-Willamette to support for our fourth quarter Charitable Giving recipient. Let’s raise a glass to living united and taking care of our community."
