Seeds of Empowerment Wines

Seeds of Empowerment

Celebrating inspirational women leaders in our community and worldwide.

Cambria Winery stands not only for quality, but community. As a female-owned and operated winery, we know that when strong women work together, they can change the world. That’s why we founded the Seeds of Empowerment program in 2014 to help even more women do amazing things.

Seeds of Empowerment is a $100,000 annual grantmaking program that celebrates remarkable women leaders and charitable organizations. From supporting the winery’s Santa Maria Valley community, to honoring women making a difference on the other side of the world, Cambria created Seeds of Empowerment to recognize and inspire leadership in women across the USA and around the globe.
