“Community, volunteerism and philanthropy formed the foundation of our upbringing; our culture. When we established Tinte Cellars, it was essential that the business reflect these values and our desire to leave the world better than we found it. This is why we donate a significant portion of our sales each year to help nonprofits further their missions in our community,” reflect the Tinte Cellars’ owners, Tim Gamble and Teresa Spellman Gamble.
Each year, Tinte Cellars selects a few nonprofit organizations to receive a portion of all wine sales. Five percent of all retail sales and 10% of all wine club sales is split equally between the recipients. The wine club sales contribution is significant, as it is drawn from the vast majority of our sales.

Tinte Cellars commitment to community doesn’t stop at the donations we make to nonprofits. Tinte is also committed to supporting our community through a broad array of programs and initiatives, such as collecting food for those in need; walking together to raise awareness for mental health; or collecting Halloween costumes for homeless children. These activities enable us to provide more—and more flexible—ways to support area charities and provide our customers and employees with opportunities to amplify their impact and give back in whatever way is most meaningful to them.
We are proud of our Tinte Cellars community of wine club members, wine enthusiasts, and customers, and our dedicated staff of wine professionals who have helped us achieve so much, so quickly. We’re bonded to our community and are gratified to know we’re making an impact in the lives of those in need. We are grateful to be able to demonstrate “great wine for the greater good.”
Tinte Cellars is determined and excited to surpass our giving goals in 2020 and we encourage our wine friends to “Drink Charitably” by visiting our two Tinte Cellars Woodinville tasting rooms this year or shopping online at www.tintecellars.com
