our mission

Empowering at-risk youth through community partnerships.

our vision

We accomplish this mission by being the catalyst in building synergies between organizations to go beyond what they would do alone.

our story

During a trip to Napa, a few friends gathered and learned the news that a well respected charity was closing its doors, leaving a gaping hole in quality services to at-risk children across California.
While saddened and in shock, the visits, meetings and tastings with winemakers, further solidified the philanthropic spirit of the wine community and allowed these friends to continue to have hope. From there an idea was sparked and the Uncork for Hope Foundation was conceived. We know that when you pair passionate people looking to do good for the community with the love of wine, the possibilities are endless!
