Let’s Raise the Glass

OpenTable and restaurateurs across the US have launched a campaign to support those affected by the Napa and Sonoma fires: Let’s Raise the Glass. The endeavor was sparked by Charleston Grill Sommelier Rick Rubel and General Manager Mickey Bakst when they began donating a portion of the proceeds from every glass or bottle of California wine sold to disaster relief.

Now a nationwide movement, participating restaurants across the US are donating a portion of their California wine sales to Sonoma Resilience Fund and Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund through December.

All restaurants are invited to participate and can sign up.

Diners, order your favorite glass or bottle of California wine from any of these participating restaurants.
