Proceeds of special wine sales to benefit Must! Charities

SummerWood Winery and Inn.

SummerWood Winery & Inn has partnered with Must! Charities on a special wine project to benefit the North County non‐profit organization. The winery is selling a specially‐labeled wine with proceeds going to the organization. The wine is a multi‐vintage, Paso Robles Red Blend, uniquely labeled for the organization. Priced at $15 per bottle or $150 per case, $10 from each bottle sold will be donated to the organization. The Must! Charities  Red Blend is currently available in the SummerWood tasting room, open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day.

Must! is a unique non‐profit organization headquartered in Templeton. Founded in 2012 by a group of local winemakers, the organization has grown to more than 250 partners. The organization is unique in that it takes a comprehensive approach to its funding projects. Based on community needs, they work with existing non‐profits in a variety of sectors, including education, healthcare, mentoring and providing healthy meals to those in need. The organization seeks out the biggest needs in our community and determines how best to meet those needs. From there, Must! walks side by side with other philanthropic organizations, securing the business model, leadership and providing guidance and coaching. This approach maximizes the impact of the donation, and empowers the organization to make strategic change that creates long‐term sustainable improvement.

SummerWood Winery & Inn General Manager Shayne Kline sits on the Partner Advisory Board for Must! Charities and is a strong advocate for the work they do, “By far, Must! is the most organized and professional of all the philanthropic groups with which I have been involved. Considerable analysis is done to determine project funding, and the results are tangible.”

SummerWood Winery & Inn is located on the westside of Paso Robles, set on a 36‐acre estate vineyard. The winery’s focus is on limited production wines, with both the Rhône and Bordeaux‐style selections receiving honors from wine publications and international competitions. The nine‐room luxury guest inn reopened in 2013 after an extensive renovation. SummerWood Winery & Inn is owned by the Fukae family of Japan, with the winery’s name originating from the translation of Mr. Fukae’s oldest son’s first name, Natsuki. For more information, please visit
