About Us
The Charity

The PaddyFund

When Cobden Wini Wines was formed, there was always the hope that at some point we could help to give back to the community. Starting in 2015, we began our donation program. Every year we choose a charity, often a small local animal program, and a portion of all profits from the previous year are donated to that charity. After the passing of our beloved dog Paddy in 2023, we decided to rename it the PaddyFund. 

From our 2022 sales, we donated to PanCAN.org. They are a great organization working to help find a cure for Pancreatic cancer and help those who are currently fighting the disease. This charity was particularly meaningful since winemaker, Mark Davis, lost his father very suddenly to pancreatic cancer in April of 2023.  Sadly, the symptoms of pancreatic cancer are not singular to the disease and are often mistaken for other ailments. PanCAN are working to find better testing in order to diagnose and treat the cancer at an earlier stage; their mission "is to take bold action to improve the lives of everyone impacted by pancreatic cancer by advancing scientific research, building community, sharing knowledge and advocating for patients."
