September, 10, 2011 - Napa Valley, CA

"Great wines for great causes" has been an important motto of our business and personal lives. Since we began farming our vineyard in 1985, we have donated and raised nearly $725 million to support charities, including our main cause, the Music Festival for Mental Health...

The Music Festival for Mental Health at Staglin Family Vineyard has brought together generous chefs, wineries, top billed musicians and scientists to raise significant funds and awareness for the cause. Thanks to its donors and support from the National Institute for Mental Health, the Music Festival for Mental Health  has raised over $135 million. These funds have resulted in research and treatment programs that have helped thousands of people.
