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.

I’m Michele Dupont, the Tasting Room Manager at Dobbes Family Estate Winery. It is my honor to select this quarter’s beneficiary for the Dobbes Charitable Giving Program. I have chosen a Portland-based charity named Animal Rescue and Care Fund, Inc. First formed in 1974, ARCF is not an animal shelter, instead they place rescued animals in foster homes, and then find those animals suitable forever homes. They also work to reduce the stray population with spay/neuter programs, and by supporting the Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon with their trap-neuter-return program.

I was first introduced to ARCF when I was looking to adopt a cat (or cats as it turned out to be). After recently moving to Portland, I was looking to adopt a “bonded pair.” That bonded pair came in the form of two litter mates named Jamie and Jasper; they have enriched my life immensely. I love how the action of adopting pets simultaneously enriches the lives of people and provides a home for domesticated animals who would otherwise be homeless.

Thank you for your support of this much-needed cause and a huge cheers to you for helping us to support them.
