 Target: Bob Wilson, Founder and CEO of Winestyr

Goal: Support companies that support small businesses

Small businesses benefit their communities in many ways: economically, culturally, and socially. Winestyr is a small business bent solely on helping other small businesses – specifically, micro-wineries. It can be difficult for micro-wineries to compete with large-scale wineries like Kendall Jackson and Robert Mondavi. Winestyr helps even the playing field by giving small wineries a chance. Sign this petition to support Winestyr’s mission to help small wineries.

Small businesses are the backbone of many communities. It is important to support small businesses and prevent them from being trampled over by larger businesses. Small businesses generate additional employment opportunities, give communities more of an identity, and tend to be more involved with their communities. Winestyr’s supports small businesses and in so doing, forwards these benefits. In addition, Winestyr also gives consumers an alternative to the usual mainstream wines. Sign this petition to support Winestyr for both its positive effects on small businesses, as well as the benefits it is passing on to consumers.


Dear Mr. Wilson, Founder and CEO of Winestyr,

There are many ways that small businesses benefit their local communities. First, from an economic perspective, small businesses often provide more jobs and opportunities for local populations than large businesses do. They also tend to buy more from local producers than large businesses. Secondly, they have a unique touch that large corporate chains do not have. While chains like Whole Foods or BevMo tend to carry the same inventory, with slight variation by region, small businesses are one of a kind, and give communities a more unique feel that contributes to their individual identities and cultures. Many towns are defined by the small businesses that sustain them. Winestyr helps to sustain these towns themselves.

Third, small businesses also tend to be more directly involved in their communities. Given that small businesses depend on their local communities in order to survive, they are likely to be me engaged with their communities. Winestyr directly supports small businesses by supporting small-production wines. The business model of Winestry has the effect of helping communities on a number of levels: economically, culturally, as well socially. Thank for reaching out to smaller wineries and supporting them.
