ONEHOPE is a social enterprise that connects charitable causes with products and services. Rob Mondavi, Jr., president at Folio Fine Wine Partners, partnered with ONEHOPE to offer an award-winning wine portfolio. One half of every bottle sold goes to selected charity. Celebrities like Will Smith, Darius Rucker and Giuliana Rancic have all been associated with this positive brand.

The enterprise was first inspired by one person’s personal mission to help a friend with her fight against cancer. Since then, the enterprise has evolved into a thriving business that follows the principle of “giving back is good business.” In 2007, eight founders created ONEHOPE Wine, with the goal of selling a quality wine that would enable them to donate to worthy causes all year round.
