Of course we love great wines, but The Wine Foundry team also includes avid outdoors enthusiasts who enjoy the many other gifts nature has to offer.  We are skiers, white water rafters and kayakers, bikers, equestrians, and lovers of nature in general.  One of our founders, Philip Von Burg, worked for Patagonia early in his career when Patagonia was just beginning its organic cotton journey, and he frequently holds Patagonia up as an aspirational business.  Many years after working at Patagonia, Philip discovered 1% for the Planet, an environmental non-profit organization launched by Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard and others in 2002.  The Wine Foundry proudly works with 1% for the Planet as a participating member.  

1% for the Planet is a global organization, leading a network of businesses, nonprofits, and individuals working together for a healthy planet. The network includes more than 1,200 member companies and thousands of approved nonprofit partners in more than 40 countries. Brands whose products and services feature the 1% for the Planet logo give at least 1% of sales annually to nonprofit organizations dedicated to protecting the environment. Members have given more than $150 million back to the planet since 2002.  Our portfolio of Foundry Wines is part of 1% for the Planet, and every bottle we sell plays a part in supporting the environment.   Learn more at onepercentfortheplanet.org.
