Brand honors a decade of serving and celebrating with the launch of two limited-edition Anniversary Cabernet Sauvignon wines, a partnership with Pencils for Promise to build a school and “10 Days of Giving” campaign
SANTA ANA, Calif. (June 5, 2017) – In 2007, eight young entrepreneurs quit their jobs and joined together to form a new wine company on their own terms. With 168 cases of ONEHOPE wine, they started selling out of their cars, guided by theirmission of giving everyone the opportunity to do good with their everyday actions. Now, 10 years later, each varietal of ONEHOPE wine gives back to nonprofit organizations and charitable causes around the world, making it easy for wine drinkers everywhere to feel good about the impact they are making without sacrificing on quality or experience. Tocommemorate the brand’s 10th anniversary, today the brand announced the launch of two new limited-edition 1.5L wines, including a 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and 2015 California Cabernet Sauvignon. Both wines support a new philanthropic partnership with Pencils for Promise to build a school and a digital campaign titled, “10 Days of Giving.”
“Philanthropy has been ingrained in the ONEHOPE business model since the very beginning and looking back on the impact of millions of dollars in charitable donations, we are grateful to have sparked a movement and inspired many others to make giving back a part of their everyday lives, both personally and professionally,” said Jake Kloberdanz, CEO and Founder of ONEHOPE Wine. “To honor our anniversary, it made sense for us to continue the tradition and celebrate with not only two new special wines, but also a focus on serving others.”
The two limited-edition Anniversary Cabernet Sauvignon wines will help to build a school and increase educational opportunities in the developing world. The new varietals include:
