Sutter Home Family Vineyards To Donate $50,000 to Superstorm Sandy Relief Efforts
St. Helena, Calif., Dec. 6, 2012 – Sutter Home Family Vineyards “Sutter Home”, announced today that it will donate $50,000 to the American Red Cross (www.redcross.org) towards relief efforts to help those impacted by October’s storm.
Sutter Home, a family-run company, is owned and operated by the Trinchero Family, who emigrated from Italy to New York where they set down roots and started their family, before moving to Napa Valley in 1948. “The hurricane devastated many of the east coast communities where our customers, consumers, and employees work and live – and they still have a long road ahead in the recovery process,” noted Sutter Home’s Senior Director of Marketing, Wendy Nyberg. “Helping families in need – especially around the holidays – is a core value of the company, and we are thankful for the Red Cross and all of the donors who are helping these residents as they try to rebuild their homes and their lives.”
The Red Cross announced this week that in the first month since Sandy hit, they provided almost 79,000 shelter stays for Sandy victims, helped provide more than 7.4 million meals and snacks, distributed more than 5.2 million relief items, and provided more than 86,000 health services and mental health contacts. The Red Cross estimates that it will spend $110 million on the emergency relief through the end of December. Any additional donations raised will be put to use serving the long-term needs of those affected by this disaster. http://www.redcross.org/news/press-release/Red-Cross-One-Month-Report-on-Superstorm-Sandy
Sutter Home helped introduce wine to a wider base of consumers by discovering and introducing White Zinfandel in Napa in the early 1970’s. The consumer response and success of White Zinfandel helped Sutter Home grow into a household name and one of the largest, independent family-run wineries in the U.S.
