Wine Enthusiast Gives Back


Wine Enthusiast Companies have been committed to giving back to the local community since inception. The founders of Wine Enthusiast are especially passionate for organizations promoting health, children’s causes, animal welfare and culture.

One of the first partnerships was to support a cure for breast cancer, as Wine Enthusiast Media has proudly raised funds and sponsored events with Susan G. Komen of Greater New York City for many years. Over time, Wine Enthusiast staff have enthusiastically brought more opportunities for the company to expand its social responsibility. Recently, our Tasting Department started a cork recycling program with ReCork, and each year at the holiday season, employees bring in canned goods and pet supplies for a local food bank and animal shelter in need—and get a bottle of wine to enjoy with their loved ones.

Wine Enthusiast Companies will donate a portion of the proceeds from this year’s 2017 Wine Star Awards gala to benefit Rebuild Wine Country, a Habitat for Humanity partner dedicated to rebuilding homes for owners and renters most in need following the wildfires in Sonoma, Napa, Solano, Lake and Mendocino Counties.

To submit a charity or partnership opportunity for consideration, please contact Manager, Special Projects & Events for Wine Enthusiast Media Jen Cortellini.
