Beachside Picnic with One Hope
Live in the sunshine. Swim in the sea. Drink the wild air.
I fell in love with the beach soon after I fell in love with my husband; his affinity for sandy feet and salty hair being infectious as they were. Despite growing up more poolside than seaside, he made a convert out of me- persuading me with clambakes, beachside corn-hole, summer sails, and sunset picnics replete with our favorite wines.
And while corn-hole and sails come a little less often now that we are a party of three, the sunset picnic still remains a weekly tradition. Living just a few miles from our local beach, we often throw together an impromptu picnic a few times a week- packing the essentials for a quick an easy weekday date, if only for a glass of wine and quick bite while the sun sets.
This week we celebrated the first official days of summer with a simple charcuterie to-go and libations from ONEHOPE Wine- white for her, red for him.
As a native Californian with roots in Napa, CA, I'm always on the lookout for a new favorite bottle of vino- and these two from ONEHOPE fit the bill. Not only are they delicious- the white perfectly refreshing for a warm summer night; the red light enough to enjoy beachside but hearty enough for him- but they also give-back. With every bottle sold, OHW gives back to a variety of charitable organizations, and have already donated $1.8 million in sales since 2007.
Whichever grape suits your fancy, they've got you covered. And for glitzier occasions, they offer glitter bottles of your favorite blends. I treated myself to a pretty pink bottle of white on Maddie Mae's first birthday- not only was it delicious, but every two bottles sold fund a clinical trial for one woman with breast cancer.
Indulge and do-good? I'll cheers to that!
