The Willamette Wineries Giving Season
November 27 - December 31
Between the breathless rush of harvest and the calm of Cellar Season, we welcome the festive energy of the holidays—and with them a chance to step back, appreciate the beauty and camaraderie around us, and give back to the communities we call home.
This year, The Willamette Cares Food Share Giving Season is our gift to you. After a year full of hard choices and unexpected obstacles, we found ways to come together to keep our community strong. Every step of the way, you were part of that community, and now is our chance to express our gratitude.
The Giving Season combines Wine Country Thanksgiving, Willamette Cares Food Share, and the holidays. Our wineries and wine country businesses have each selected a special gift for you, to show our appreciation for Willamette Valley wine lovers everywhere.
In the tradition of Willamette Cares Food Share, our Giving Season celebration will include support for Oregon food banks. Together our participating wineries and wine country businesses donated $7,000 to the Oregon Food Bank Network, and many are continuing to make and accept donations. Participating businesses are supporting Food for Lane County, Linn Benton Food Share, Marion Polk Food Share, Yamhill County Action Partnership Food Bank, and Oregon Food Bank.
