The Everything Matters Society…more than just a wine club.
Here at Auburn Road, “everything matters” is kind of our motto. It’s on our t-shirts, our website, our bottles…pretty much all over the place. People ask us all the time to tell them what it means. Well, it is really pretty simple – everything we do, think, dream, and imagine impacts the world around us. We can’t control it. It just does. But what we can control is what kind of impact we have. If we do, think, dream, imagine things that are positive – the impact on the world around us cannot help but be positive. That idea is what got us here and has kept us going.
Over the years, we have met some extraordinary people who have helped support our business and have become our friends. It is for these people that we first formed our “wine club”. The first mission of our “wine club” is to give back to those terrific people who have supported us.
Then as we got to know these people better over the years and as our circle of friends has grown wider, we began to realize that what this group has in common is that they share with us the understanding of that simple truth we summarize as “everything matters”. And we realized further that there is great energy to be found in a group of people who both like to hang out together and understand the impact they can have on the world around them. It is for this reason that this group of friends and supporters is no longer just a “wine club” but is now “The Everything Matters Wine Society.”
So now that our wine club has reinvented itself as “The Everything Matters Wine Society”, what does that mean? It means we drink wine together, celebrate new vintages together, and take some time to enjoy life together. It also means we can find ways to positively impact our world together. How? Well that is for “The Everything Matters Wine Society ” to decide. But we have some ideas……
First, let’s talk about how Auburn Road is pleased to give back to you for all of your support and friendship:

And next, let’s talk about what we can do together:
• We will select a charity for “Give Peach a Chance”: Every year, Auburn Road and “The Everything Matters Wine Society” will donate $0.25 from the proceeds of every bottle of Give Peach a Chance sold. The recipient charitable organization will be selected by “The Everything Matters Wine Society” from a list of nominations made by our Members.
• We will promote the favorite charities of our Members: Those charities not selected by Members in a given year for the “Give Peach a Chance” donation will all be listed on our social media with their contact information as a way to promote them to visitors to our social media and one will be featured weekly in the “Everything Matters Wine Society” section of our weekly blast email, on our Facebook page and in our Twitter communications for the week.
• We will support The Walt Whitman Association: Every year, Auburn Road and “The Everything Matters Wine Society” will donate $0.25 from the proceeds of every bottle of Eidolon sold. The proceeds will go to The Walt Whitman Association – the great organization that promotes the Good Grey Poet’s legacy including maintaining his house and museum in Camden and promoting poetry contests for local students.
• We will represent Auburn Road and “The Everything Matters Wine Society” at functions and events as our ambassadors!
• And your voice counts! If you have ideas, we want to hear about them!!
