ONEHOPE California Merlot is a unique drinkable wine created in partnership with Rob Mondavi Jr. from select vineyards throughout Napa, Sonoma and California’s Central Coast. Its bright cherry color and subtle notes of toasty spice are a result of aging in a combination of American and French oak barrels. Rich tannins make ONEHOPE Merlot a perfect match with a range of main courses including meats, pastas and vegetarian dishes.
|More than 34 million people are living with HIV/AIDS and 30 million people worldwide have already died from the disease. We work with Keep A Child Alive to do our part to provide medicine, food, and shelter to the children and adults fighting this horrific disease. For every two cases of Merlot sold, a child with HIV/AIDS is provided with life-saving medicine for one month.
ONEHOPE donates 50% of profits generated from the sale of every bottle of its Merlot to AIDS/Lifecycle in the effort to increase knowledge and awareness about HIV/AIDS. The 7-day, 545 mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles raises money to help communities fund services and programs for those fighting AIDS and provides education and support to their friends and families.
50% of profits from ONEHOPE California Merlot sales are donated to non-profits who support the fight against HIV/AIDS.
Merlot is one of the most popular varietals in the world. It has been one of the cornerstone wine-making grapes for hundreds of years. HIV/AIDS is arguably the biggest epidemic in the world, taking the lives of over 25 million people in the last 25 years. We thought the Merlot paired well with the fight against HIV/AIDS because HIV/AIDS has been such a consistent threat to millions of people over the years, and Merlot has consistently been one of marquee varietals for numerous decades.
