Helping our communities

All of us in the Savvy Team are proud of our extensive involvement in the Ottawa community, provincial and national charities along with not-for-profit organizations.  We give back by sponsoring community and charity events, lending our event management expertise to fundraising committees, connecting organizations with wineries, and even provide our Sommelier Sommeliers as live auction items – a very popular fundraising item!


We delight in hearing people say, ‘Savvy Company is everywhere!’  From day one, I have been a strong believer that being involved in the community – whether the place we live or the wine community – is essential and enriches our lives. As all of us involved in Savvy Company have different communities and ways of helping people, every year, each Savvy Team member personally selects their preferred charity or organization to donate $500 in Sommelier Services.
