ONEHOPE wine do good as you drink 'good' with this passionately philanthropic wine company!

We met with amazing local ONEHOPE representative April Martin [self branded “cause entrepreneur”] who is so passionate about ONEHOPE’s incredible ethics and ‘do good drink good’ philosophy!

Says April, “Who knew that doing good could be so much fun? As a proud member of the ONEHOPE family, I love that ONEHOPE allows me to help raise awareness and funds for multiple causes near and dear to my heart. I have always wanted to find a career path that is flexible, engaging, and fun while also allowing me to make a difference in my community. Working with ONEHOPE helps me achieve my goals and more. So whether you’re looking for a casual night out, a fundraising party, or a wine social, I welcome the opportunity to help organize a great and memorable event with you!”

We couldn’t agree more! Contact April for your ONEHOPE wines and bubbly for your wedding!
