Causes We Support

We at Hook & Ladder Vineyards and Winery are proud to be a part of the amazing fabric that makes Sonoma County one of the most amazing places on earth. Our Community has shown an unwavering support for us over the years and our ownership and staff enjoys nothing more than the opportunity to give back. We know that there are so many people and organizations doing wonderful things and trying to find solutions and support for the challenges we face and those in need. Though we cannot support every important cause, our goal is to partner with as many meaningful 501c3 organizations as possible. We have started an initiative of scheduled partnerships with a different impactful non-profit every month of the year. We build targeted campaigns and events to support the goals of giving back to the community we love.
