Trinchero Family Estates supports improved health care access through its contributions to the new OLE health center, slated to open in 2018. In 2017, TFE matched its previous $1 million donation with another $1 million to help build the new center. OLE’s current location serves over 140 TFE employees.
“OLE Health is committed to offering comprehensive health care and bilingual services and is known for its excellent customer care,” said Roger Trinchero, chairman and CEO at St. Helena-based Trinchero Family Estates.
“We will be partnering with OLE this year and promoting its services at harvest time to all of our seasonal rehires. Many harvest workers have family members who may have different insurance plans, and OLE can meet those varied needs. Our employees are our family, and donating to OLE helps ensure they receive the best care.”
In partnership with Trees for the Future, The One Bottle, One Tree program funds a tree planting for every bottle of TFE Trinity Oaks wine sold. Some 17 million trees have been planted to date.
TFE also produces Newman’s Own wines and Common Good, part of the Newman’s Own portfolio of quality natural products. One of Paul Newman’s greatest legacies is the Newman’s Own Foundation, which has donated over $485 million to thousands of non-profits around the world.
Another TFE product, the 192 red wine blend, supports the Pan-Mass Challenge. This is a 192-mile cycling event that has raised more than a half-billion dollars to benefit cancer research and treatment. TFE also partnered with the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through the Jimmy Fund, and supports Cycle for Sight, Girls on the Run and Ride for ALS.
In 2001, Vera Trinchreo Torres, a founding TFE family member, was diagnosed with breast cancer, and the family company began its commitment to the cause. That year, Sutter Home Family Vineyards launched Sutter Home for Hope, one of the first cancer awareness programs in the wine industry. Since its inception, TFE has raised over $1 million to help support breast cancer research, treatment and education programs across the U.S.
In addition, TFE supports one of the world’s leading viticulture programs at the University of California at Davis. Trinchero Family Estates’ $1 million dollar donation helped the university build a new facility with state-of-the-art technology for UC Davis Foundation Plant Services, an organization within the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, that includes the new TFE building.
