On one glorious night in the City of London, the very best of the City of London proffesionals and the very best of French Fine wines unite in the aid of unwell children in the UK and wider wine making world...
America is a big place and when children get sick, the right help can be a long long way away. We are making our donation specifically to help the familes of the children with cancer with the cost of this travel. We hope that it makes a horrible journey just a little easier.
The BIG wine weekend is a mixture of classic British countryside pursuits and Fine food and wine. A weekend packed with classes, events, breakfast lunch and dinner followed by the biggest fine wine charity auction in The United Kingdon of Great Britain.
The Grape Foundation is happy to announce that we are making donations to Association REVES in France and Alex's Lemonade stand in America. Reves gives very unwell children the chance to have a 'Dream Holiday' and very much hopes that it is not there last. We chose to support this activity due to the smiles it creates for children. So here we go!

The Grape Foundation teamed up with www.GrapePip.com who together invite everyone to bid on our ‘Christmas is for Kids’ online auction featuring an incredible array of Fine Wines both classic and new world.
For every case of wine we produce as an industry, there is a child somewhere in the world without a smile, without a meal, without a mother or father, without love. This should never be.
The Grape Foundation is our foundation, the whole wine world working together charitably to put smiles on the faces of children that need it, to put food into tummies that are without it, to save a life where we can. What could be more important?
The drinks industry and indeed wine is often given negative press due to its misuse and even abuse, but we know how loving, close and caring most wine communities are. Wine is made following centuries of tradition of people working together, tirelessly; to achieve something they are really proud of.
The Grape Foundation was formed to reflect these positive sentiments and demonstrate how, as an industry, we really do care both about what we do, each other and, of course, children in need.
Together we are: The Wine World's Children's Charity
