Philanthropy in The Vines at V. Sattui Winery Is Demonstrating Commitment to Sustainability through a generous donation to Napa Valley Grapegrowers.
V. Sattui Winery is a beloved and renowned name in the world of winemaking. And, they’re honored to announce its unwavering commitment to sustainability and community support, through its recent donation of $10,000, to the Napa Valley Grapegrowers.
I’m very impressed by the V. Sattui Company. When I was at their sister company Castello di Amarosa, their safety officer Jim Sullivan, (Vice President PR & Marketing) immediately jumped on an opportunity I had to offer. That was to have one of Ron Rubin’s TRAINED FOR SAVING LIVES automatic external defibrillators (AEDs). It such a hard sell to most people. It takes a special kind of person to see his or her face light up at the prospect of a safety device. Many people are focused on life, and don’t ever want to think about the dangerous side of it. That said, Jim is educated, enthusiastic, and fully engaged in life, as an enthusiastic bicyclist. He just understood and made my heart sing. And, he will save a heart, if and/or should anyone at the winery should need an AED, due to heart attack or cardiac arrest.
Dario Sattui is the owner of both wine companies: V. Sattui and Castello di Amarosa. So, it’s my pleasure to present both Napa Valley wineries to you. They are places you should consider in your travels to Napa Valley, and delight in their wines. Knowing the integrity of its ownership and the people in his employ, it’s a great visit for any of you.
Press Release Follows
The commitment to holistic sustainability is at the heart of V. Sattui Winery’s values, and they are proud to put their words into action. The winery recently pledged to donate $1 from every bottle sold of their Napa Valley Terra Forza Cabernet Sauvignon to Napa community organizations. During the seven-month fundraising campaign, the winery sold nearly 10,000 bottles at the winery and online. Their generous contribution has culminated in the substantial donation of $10,000 to the Napa Valley Grapegrowers.
The Napa Valley Terra Forza Cabernet Sauvignon (Terra Forza meaning “strong earth” in Italian) is a celebrated wine within the V. Sattui portfolio, known for its outstanding quality and its message of agricultural stewardship and community involvement. By donating a portion of the proceeds from this exceptional wine, V. Sattui Winery is not only reinforcing its dedication to sustainability but also supporting the very community that has been instrumental in its success.
The Napa Valley Grapegrowers is a non-profit organization committed to cultivating viticultural excellence and environmental stewardship and ensuring the viability and resiliency of grape growing in the Napa Valley. They work tirelessly to promote sustainable vineyard practices and advocate for protecting agriculture as the highest and best use of our agriculturally zoned lands. V. Sattui Winery’s generous donation will undoubtedly contribute to the Napa Valley Grapegrowers’ ongoing efforts to sustain this incredible viticultural heritage and farming culture.
“V. Sattui Winery has been a part of the Napa Valley community for over a century, and we recognize the importance of supporting local organizations that share our commitment to preserving the region’s rich wine-growing tradition,” said Tom Davies, President of V. Sattui Winery. “Our donation to the Napa Valley Grapegrowers reflects our dedication and commitment to the environment, the sustainability of our wine growing economy, and the people who make Napa Valley the extraordinary place that it is.”
The winery is not only celebrating this donation but also the ongoing support of its valued customers and the wider community. It is through their continued patronage that V. Sattui Winery can make such a substantial contribution to organizations that safeguard Napa Valley’s future.
“The Napa Valley Grapegrowers has worked to conserve local agriculture for nearly 50 years, but we couldn’t do it without the ongoing support from community members, like V. Sattui,” said Sonya DeLuca, interim executive director of the Napa Valley Grapegrowers, “Through this generous donation, we can continue educating and advocating on key issues affecting the grape-growing community. We are beyond appreciative to Tom Davies and the V. Sattui team.”
