Family-owned winery Quilceda Creek exceeds fundraising goals with a stunning $305,280 donation to Chef José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen

NEWS RELEASE – May 24, 2022

Snohomish, WA — –Quilceda Creek President and Director of Winemaking Paul Golitzin and General Manager Scott Lloyd announced today that the winery exceeded its recent sales fundraising campaign for World Central Kitchen and has donated an astounding amount for a small family-owned winery: $305,280.


The primary purpose of the donation to World Central Kitchen was to help displaced Ukrainians as a result of the conflict with Russia, but World Central Kitchen’s initiatives also extend beyond that need throughout the world.


The donation is a result of Quilceda Creek’s announcement last month that 100% of gross sales from the release of the winery’s first, and only ever, planned production of white wines would be donated to the organization.


The 2020 Quilceda Creek Horse Heaven Hills Sauvignon Blanc and 2020 Quilceda Blanc Columbia Valley White Wine were offered to the winery’s private members on April 20th by lottery and sold out in under an hour.
