Raise a Glass to Autism Awareness

To further our Autism Awareness and support, why not give a toast to the cause?  Depending on where you live this red wine may or may not be readily available.  On the bottle I purchased it did not specify what organization would receive support but something that I had to research after the fact. 

One Hope Wine is a brilliant concept.  Purchase wine to support the cause of your choice, in this case autism.  After contacting the company and reading more recent information they updated on their site here are the specifics:
WINEMAKER ROB MONDAVI JR. - ONEHOPE Cabernet Sauvignon is hand-crafted and made from a blend of grapes sourced from select vineyards throughout Napa Valley, Sonoma County, and California’s Central Coast in partnership with Rob Mondavi Jr. The dark, ruby red Cabernet Sauvignon is a pleasure for the senses with the aromas of lush black cherry, cassis and a hint of tobacco. Aged in American and French oak, its complex layers of spice are balanced by soft tannins making it the perfect wine to pair with roasted and grilled meats such as lamb, prime rib, or porterhouse steak.
ONEHOPE donates 50% of profits generated from the sale of every bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon to benefit ACT Today! to help autistic children achieve their highest potential. The partnership between ONEHOPE and ACT Today! helps provide funding and support for families who cannot afford specialized care for their autistic children. From social skills groups and referrals to biomedical treatments, ACT Today! is making positive change and providing hope to individuals with autism and their families. 50% of profits from ONEHOPE California Cabernet Sauvignon sales are donated to charities who support the fight against Autism.

Pricing may vary depending on your location.  It is typically around $9-$12 in our area.  The wine is delicious and has made a wonderful gift for others on several occasions.  Bringing a bottle to a dinner party is a great way to spark conversation and awareness.  Finding new ways to lend support is always important to me. Therefore, I say have a glass to support needed resources!
