THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WINE ROAD—GIVING BACK TO OUR COMMUNITY
The Wine Road and its members have always been important supporters of local charitable organizations. Whether it’s donating wine, tours, dinners and gift items or pouring at charitable events and raising money, we’ve always been there to help our local non-profits.
During our fun filled 40th anniversary year, we made a point of partnering with a variety of local non-profits for each of our celebratory events.
We RAISED a TOTAL of $100,000!!!
Art of Oak – Benefitting Luther Burbank Center for the Arts, Children’s Art Programs
Ruby Affair – Benefitting United Way of Wine Country and Worth Our Weight
40 Years of Cheers! – Benefitting Becoming Independent
Redwood Empire Food Bank
Since 2005, the Wine Road has partnered with the Redwood Empire Food Bank, donating a portion of ticket sales from our events. From 2005 through 2018, we’ve collected over $450,000 for the Food Bank. That money helps feed struggling people whose next meal might be days away without support from the Redwood Empire Food Bank.
Wine Road donates one dollar from every ticket sold during our three annual events (Wine & Food Affair, Winter WINEland and Barrel Tasting). Plus, we donate one dollar from every Ticket to the Wine Road and all the Barrel Tasting ticket sales for designated drivers. As we continue our partnership with the Redwood Empire Food Bank, we hope you’ll continue to do your part by attending our annual events and purchasing your Ticket to the Wine Road throughout the year.

…to our partnership with the Food Bank, Wine Road donates to 80–100 different non-profits annually. Donations include Wine Road event tickets, Wine Road cookbooks and other Wine Road items. This typically adds up to more than $10,000 annually. This total does not include the thousands of dollars in wine, tours, dinners, lodging and more that our members donate each year to numerous charities, locally and nationally.
Thanks for Your Support
