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 donate 10% of its sales to the chosen charity. This quarter, Kristin Rice our Brand Marketing Manager selected The Washed Ashore Project as the featured charity. Read her story below then follow the link to purchase our 2016 Elements to support this cause.


Why Kristin Rice chose The Washed Ashore Project:

About 300 million pounds of plastic is produced globally each year and less than 10 percent of that is recycled. Each year, sea birds, whales, seals, sea turtles and other marine life die after ingesting plastic or becoming entangled in it. Plastic pollution has spread into all marine habitats and every level of the food chain. The facts surrounding plastic pollution aren’t fun to talk about, but our oceans and waterways are in a global crisis and we have to be the difference for future generations. The Washed Ashore Project raises awareness to the plastic pollution issue and is actively cleaning beaches and turning trash into these larger than life sized, powerful art pieces. When I first stumbled upon The Washed Ashore Project, I was immediately drawn to their creativity of turning something so devastating into beautiful statement art. I’m so proud to be a part of the new Dobbes’ Elements initiative in giving back to the Earth’s Elements with every release – and to kick it off with such an amazing organization who strives for change makes it that much more meaningful.  So here’s toThe Washed Ashore Project and everyone involved in doing the harder right than the easier wrong. CHEERS!
