    No mention of Ehlers? Granted heart research isn't as much of a "humanitarian" cause, but it's pretty impressive that the winery is owned by the non-profit foundation that sends all profits to heart research.

    I have purchased OneHope wines using vouchers I purchased that gave me the wine at a reduced price. There cabernet ($18.99 a bottle) is neither the best deal nor the worst deal in its price range. When I bought it the wine was less than two years old (2010 harvest and opened the bottle in 2012), so I put it down and will wait until 2014 to open them. It was bright and very fruity, not thin. Seemed to be worth drinking. I bought some of their 2009 Darius ($60) which was a limited botting of about 100 cases and just opened a bottle the other night. It was a very lovely wine, good tannins, not too astringent, fruity and a sense of that Rutherford dust. It needs another 2-3 years but I am hopeful it will turn out to be really good. I bought about 10 bottles all total.

    Another excellent wine that also is a "charity" wine is David Family wine...they make what I consider a superb pinot noir. And each bottle is numbered, you can correspond the number on the label to look up info regarding a particular family being supported by your purchase through Habitat for Humanity.

  • I wanted to pass along another charity wine organization, that raises funds to prevent homelessness in families with children. http://winesforhumanity.com/
    The wines are world sourced and value priced, and they give back to local charities. They are only in 9 states right now, but the good they do is amazing.
    Well worth doing.

  • Jarhead Red from the Firestone family helps the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation and it is a pretty good red!
