ONEHOPE California Merlot 2010
ONEHOPE donates half of pro?ts from the sale of every bottle of Merlot to END7 to join in the goal of ending neglected tropical diseases by 2020. Neglected tropical diseases affect one in six people worldwide, so we felt it was important to support a program to end these terrible diseases. Every bottle of ONEHOPE Merlot provides a simple packet of pills that treats and protects one person from all seven NTDs for up to a year. The effects are nearly immediate. Just days after taking the pills, children become energetic, engaged and able to concentrate in school. Treating people with NTDs is one of the easiest ways to help them escape poverty and achieve their full potential.
ONEHOPE has become the socially conscious wine of choice at several hundred premier events including the Grammy's, The American Red Cross Gala, the BAFTA’s, Sundance Film Festival and VH1 Save the Music.
The tireless efforts over the past three years from the dedicated ONEHOPE team have ensured that the brand is a familiar and respected concept in most households and businesses. This commitment and dedication to "making a difference" is what has spearheaded the astonishing company to great heights in such a short time. The hard-working and dynamic team strives without limits to create a global brand that promises to make a better future for all.
A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties—they cover nearly double the vineyard acreage compared to whites.
While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.
Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates with vineyards climbing up mountains, reaching far into valleys and stretching along some the state’s most dramatic coastlines. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon do well in its warmer locations.
Winemaking in California dates back to the 18th century when Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes. But the industry experienced its first boom with the Gold Rush in the last half of the 19th century when miners brought vines to the Sierra Foothills.
