The Wren Quinn Project
Garrett and Cailin Portra grew up volunteering for their communities in Missouri in various ways. After purchasing Carlson Vineyards in 2015, they had less time to volunteer, but the same desire to impact their community. They came up with a way to still give back and involve their daughters, Josephine Wren and Madeline Quinn, in order to raise them with the same principle of supporting others.
The Wren Quinn Project, named after Garrett and Cailin’s daughters, exists as an opportunity for Carlson to give back to our community and support individuals and causes in which we believe. In the past, a portion of every purchased Wren Quinn bottle of wine would be donated toward these various organizations, causes, or needs. Since its conception, our vision for it has grown and we want to expand our giving. Now, your purchase of any bottle of wine from our Wren Quinn series contributes to the fund from which we donate, and every month we will choose a different recipient for our Wren Quinn donation. We are thankful for the ability to do this and for your part in it.
“Cailin and I started the Wren Quinn Project with the belief that we couldn't have a successful business without a successful community around us. This new direction will allow us to grow an important area of our business and do as much good as possible. Cheers!”
