Joel Gott Wines Partners with Feeding America to Help Provide 2.5 Million Meals for Families Nationwide through ‘Gott for Good’ Initiative
California-based winemaker will help provide meals for people facing hunger this holiday season
ST. HELENA, Calif., September 30, 2022 – Joel Gott Wines, an award-winning and family-owned portfolio of elegant, balanced and affordable wines, celebrates the expansion of its philanthropic commitment through the ‘Gott for Good’ initiative by helping provide 2.5 million meals1 through the Feeding America® network of 200 member food banks nationwide through December 31, 2022. This holiday season marks Joel Gott Wines’ fourth consecutive year of partnership with Feeding America, reaffirming the winery’s commitment to helping people facing immense food insecurity2:
- Last year, nearly 34 million individuals—1 in 10—lived in food-insecure households
- Among children, more than 9 million—1 in 8—were living in food-insecure households
Since 2019, Joel Gott Wines has supported Feeding America’s goal of reducing food insecurity through Gott for Good. As a fourth-generation vintner and business owner who’s proud to give back, Joel Gott is passionate about continuing to elevate the Gott for Good initiative to help make a difference during the holiday season. Now, as the program continues its commitment for the fourth year, the brand is proud to be able to help more families and make an even greater impact in 2022.
“There’s nothing more meaningful than knowing you’re making a difference,” said Joel Gott, vintner of Joel Gott Wines. “It’s amazing to see the good that we’re doing with Feeding America, and I couldn’t be happier with the difference we’re making by putting food on the table for people who need it. We’re really proud to be a national partner of Feeding America and excited to see the difference we can make together in our fourth year of partnership.”
Returning for its second year, Joel Gott is proud to offer a gift pack for those looking to support a brand that gives back this holiday season. Beginning Nov. 1, Joel Gott Wines fans are once again invited to purchase a Gott for Good bundle featuring 815 Cabernet Sauvignon and California Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir offerings in a gift box that’s sure to spread holiday cheer.
