On April 14th Tinte Cellars recognized the first Bottles for Bravery recipient and on May 20th we acknowledged our final awardee with a full heart. Receiving more than 100 nominations, each day for more than a month Tinte Cellars recognized pandemic heroes, from medical professionals to police officers to community organizers who’ve made a significant difference in the lives of so many.
We understand these 37 awardees represent only a tiny fraction of those who’ve been at the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, and there are countless others who bravely serve in healthcare facilities, in public service, in our grocery stores and on the farm.
Tinte Cellars was founded on the belief of stepping up and giving back. “Through Tinte Cellars, we aim to blend our passion for creating exceptional wine with our deep commitment to engaging others and helping our community to thrive. After all, one of the very best things about great wine is its ability to bring people together,” said Teresa Spellman Gamble, co-owner of Tinte Cellars.
We are proud of how our community has pulled together during this challenging time and we’re encouraged by the love and compassion we’ve witnessed. We’re grateful to our Bottles for Bravery recipients, to all the first responders and essential workers, and to the greater Washington State community. Be well!

Almost two years ago, Tinte Cellars launched our vision of producing great wine for the greater good. Today, our goal of crafting world-class wines and generously giving back to the community is being realized, as Tinte Cellars successfully bridges philanthropy with operation of a premium Washington State winery.
“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.
2019 Giving Report
Combined giving of more than $170,000!
In 2019 Tinte Cellars selected four nonprofit organizations to receive the wine sales contribution. In 2019 Tinte Cellars donated more than $70,000 in cash to support these charities:
• Child Mind Institute
• Mary’s Place
• Northwest Harvest
Stepping up and giving back is key to the Tinte Cellars giving philosophy and in 2019 we supported over 75 local nonprofit organizations by donating more than $100,000 in wine and sponsorships, addressing these areas of need:
• 24.9% – Homelessness
• 18.7% – Education
• 16.1% – Arts
• 13.8% – Environment
• 13.5% – Children’s Health & Wellness
• 8.8% – Healthcare
• 4.2% – Community Development
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
