Donation Policy

As a Napa Valley winery, we strive to be active in our own community through involvement with local non-profit organizations and educational groups by generously donating when possible. Because of the overwhelming number of deserving requests, we focus on supporting as many local organizations as we can, with alternate years of support even for those groups. Since we are also members of the Napa Valley Vintners and support their charitable efforts with local health and medical groups, we do not participate with these groups on an individual basis.

Thank you for understanding.

All requests should be submitted in writing on organization letterhead at least six (6) weeks prior to the date of your event. Digital files sent by email to are preferred and appreciated.

Requests can also be mailed or faxed to:

Schramsberg Vineyards

1400 Schramsberg Rd.
Calistoga, CA 94515
Fax: (707) 942-5943

Each Letter of Request should include the following information and documents:

  • Contact name, address, phone number and e-mail address
  • Name of requesting organization
  • The event & date details, including an event flyer or announcement
  • Details regarding who benefits from the proceeds
  • Details regarding how your donation will be used (raffle prize, auction item, etc.)

Processing Your Request

We will make every effort to process your request at least three (3) weeks prior to the date of your event. Due to the high volume of requests we receive, we would ask that NO telephone inquiries be made regarding the status of your request unless it is to arrange pick up of an auction item. Those calls should come to 707-942-6668 x2400 at least one week prior to your requested pick up date. We also ask that organizations limit their requests to one (1) per year in order to help the greatest number of individuals. We thank you for your understanding.
