Want a chance to win a 40-Bottle Instant Wine Cellar and help our local food bank feed those in need at the same time? Now is your chance.

As part of the Wine Road’s 40th anniversary celebration, our winery members have donated 160 bottles of wine to the Redwood Empire Food Bank (REFB). Four separate 40-bottle wine cellars have been created to celebrate the Wine Road turning 40. Raffle tickets to win one of these Instant Wine Cellars will be sold starting this weekend (January 16 & 17) and through November 2016. On December 1st, the Food Bank will select four tickets and the winners will each receive one of the 40-Bottle Instant Wine Cellars. Volunteers from the Food Bank will sell tickets at every Wine Road event held this year, starting this weekend at Winter WINEland.

Since 2005, the Wine Road has partnered with the Redwood Empire Food Bank, donating a portion of ticket sales from events. From 2005 through 2014, they’ve collected over $300,000 for the Food Bank. That money helps feed struggling people whose next meal might be days away without support from the Food Bank.
