Food Is Love. Pour It On.

Packing healthy food boxes for our community.

Vintage Wine Estates invites you to participate in Angels Share.

In our business, the angel’s share is the small amount of alcohol that evaporates from the barrels during maturation. The Angels Share campaign is a small way we can share with those in need in our communities.

Get Involved

Brief History

Angels Share came to life in 2015. In lieu of an employee holiday party, we decided to work with our local food bank to gather and pack food for those in need.

Food insecurity is a struggle for many. Nationally, 1 in 7 people rely on food banks. In our home base of Sonoma County, hundreds of children, families and seniors do not have enough healthy meals and groceries.

We teamed up with our local food bank, Redwood Empire Food Bank, to organize a holiday food drive. Right before the holidays, we shut down our wine shipping warehouse and assembled 1500 boxes of food for our neighbors in need. Now, it’s an annual tradition, with more boxes filled each year! We are bringing Angels Share to our partners in the wine industry and beyond.

Together, we will make a difference.

How to Host Your Own Angels Share Program

Partner with your local food bank. They have resources and organization to help optimize your giving, plus they know what is most needed in your community right now. Reach out, they will walk you through the steps.

  • Set a goal on how many boxes you want to pack.

  • Pick a date and invite all employees to participate.

  • Get in the spirit by creating and ordering your own Angels Share t-shirts. Download the Angels Share logo, and customize designs by adding the name of your company and date of the event.

  • Select an Angels Share captain and designate helpers to manage the various tasks.

Make it a work party! It’s a great gesture to offer a family meal (we do a turkey with all the trimmings buffet lunch) before the packing begins. Raffle prizes are an added bonus.

Create a photo album of the event. Post to an image sharing app like Flickr and other social media channels.

Tag, Share or Like us @angelssharingmeals

If you can’t have a box packing event, consider making a cash donation to your local food bank. They can give you the cost of a holiday box in your area, and you can decide how many boxes you want to donate.

A big thank you to our partnering retailers and restaurateurs!
