Schram Vineyards is a family run business and small production winery.  We are a proud supporter of many local organizations and fundraising events throughout the Twin Cities and in our local community.  We understand donations are a part of continuing the betterment of our community and we are proud to be a contributor to many organizations and fundraising efforts year after year.  

Due to the high volume of requests, we are not able to respond to all requests as we average about 3-5 donation requests a day. Requests may not be made in person.  Please consider our guidelines before emailing your request.
