Salute Sante! gives back and donates to Napa restaurants to feed First Responders & Healthcare Workers

Valentin Humer, CEO and founder of Salute Santé! has always been quick with ideas and quick to act on them. When it became apparent that our very valuable customers – our fine restaurants – were in trouble due to mandated closures and the need to revamp their kitchens to provide safe working conditions for their cooks, he knew what we had to do: Salute Santé! would donate cases of grapeseed oil to ensure they’d still have their key ingredient, allowing them not only to offer take-out food to subsidize their employees, but to cook for our frontline responders and healthcare workers as well.

Valentin Creates New 750ml Format from Donated Wine Bottles

In order to do this, however, Nanette and Valentin needed to figure out a way to shoulder their own costs, continue to pay their employees and keep them safe. Partnering with the local wineries in the Napa Valley, they created the new format of 750ml bottles. Using the unused wine bottles donated by local wineries, we are now able to offer 50% more of our delicious, heart healthy Salute Santé! Cold Pressed Grapeseed Oil at a lower price! Also, by using the unused bottles, we are maintaining our promise to remain up-cycled and zero waste. The bottle design may change, but the wonderful grapeseed oil you know and love, remains the same.

Take it from Oprah!

“We know grapeseed oil is healthy for cooking – and now it’s bringing the flavor, too! These are infused with roasted garlic, white truffle, lemon, basil, or chili, making them perfect for marinades, drizzles, dips, and dressings” as Oprah says in the December 2019 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine”.
