OneHope wines give back half of the profits to variety of charities.  For example, the chardonnay helps fund clinical trial for a women with breast cancer.  There will be a tasting at 5 locations for the Parade of Homes tour on Oct 23rd.

ONEHOPE was founded in 2007 by a small group of passionate entrepreneurs with a vision to make the world a better place. They’ve created an award winning collection of wines, gifts, and other gourmet products, with every item providing a built-in donation to our meaningful cause partners. Each wine varietal is linked to a charity, a carefully vetted non-profit organization, that it supports. The wines fund such worthy causes as: environmental reforestation, Autism research and ABA therapy, cancer research and treatment trials, combating childhood hunger, and veteran support (among many others). They make it easy for individuals to give back through everyday purchases and in so doing, make social impact an integral part of your lifestyle. With their wine tastings, a host/hostess selects a tax registered non-profit of their choosing to receive 15% of sales generated from their party.
