Because it is important to support causes that benefit us all

Sunset Hills Vineyard contributes regularly to a wide range of charitable causes - from medical research on diseases that impact friends and customers to fundraising for schools to broader initiatives that benefit our community. We seek effective, low overhead, high results charities so the funds raised provide the optimum benefit to the charity selected. To date, we have donated to over 14 charities for a total of over $250,000.
