The WHY Collection is Here!!!
As a certified WBENC business, we are proudly women-founded and run. From payment processing to marketing, label-printing to shipping, all of the vendors and suppliers Teneral Cellars works with are women and minority owned companies. We sustainably farm and produce our award-winning wines to minimize the impact to the environment, and to ensure the high standards of our final product. These practices include using free range sheep and goats to control weeds, plastic free packaging, no pesticides, and dry farming to conserve water for some of our vineyards.I believe that when you open a bottle you open the necessary conversation. That’s why 10% of all profits go to organizations working to create a more equitable future and fight for gender and racial equality. Last year we donated $51,500 to organizations including the National Women's Law Center, World Central Kitchen, Generation W, Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative, and the Endometriosis Foundation of America to name a few. In 2022, we have partnered with The Billie Jean King Leadership Foundation in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Title IX with our All in Zin and The Perfect Match Collection, and with Supermajority and The National Network of Abortion Funds with our Ruthless Collection. This collection aims to change the trajectory of this country in the wake of The Supreme Court’s ruling to overturn Roe v Wade. With this collection we encouraged our audience to hold a “Ruthless” party to further the conversation around women’s rights, and to demand that our lives are safe, our bodies are respected, our work is paid for, our families are supported, and our government represents us, the majority.
Working from my why drives everything I do and it inspired our latest collection, appropriately named The Why Collection. We believe it is important to call out that we should all be working from our why. It helps us to stay the course when things get bumpy, and to check in with ourselves, that we are still on the right path. The Why Collection includes a reserve merlot, a chardonnay, and a dessert wine, with 10% of profits going back to Women of the Vine & Spirits scholarship program to support women in wine. We include conversation starters on the back of our wines and for The Why Collection they include, “What is your why?” and “What have you done to support and elevate women?”
We encourage women to share their values with the wines they drink and the wines they give. Wine brings people together. Our bottles start conversations and prompt important dialogue that supports progressive changes toward a more equitable future for all women.
