Earth Day is this weekend and we have some exciting news to share about how you’re helping to save the planet! If you didn’t already know, every bottle of our California Sauvignon Blanc helps fund our global reforestation project with Trees4Trees™.
How are your wine purchases making a difference you might ask? Half of the world’s tropical forests have been destroyed, and your purchases help rebuild them. Every case of our Sauvignon Blanc plants 6 trees which makes a HUGE impact on the environment. Little by little, you are helping to bring more trees, more oxygen, and more hope to the world around us.
Exciting News to Share
Thanks to your purchases and continuous dedication to saving our planet, ONEHOPE is planting a community forest in Central Java! We are absolutely thrilled that we can support this community and build an entire forest for an area in need. Here are the details of what we will be able to build together.
ONEHOPE Community Forest
ONEHOPE will fund the planting of 10,000 trees in Seling, Kebumen, Central Java (pronounced like “Sailing”). Seling is an old village in the mountains of Central Java in Indonesia that has been struggling with the effects of deforestation, floods, and erosion since the 1990s. In 2001, it was cleared as a national disaster site when 31 homes were lost in the community due to mudslides. Despite this surge of water during tropical storms, Seling has continued to battle water shortages year after year.
Together with local farmers, you will help us plant 10,000 trees to assist in reducing erosion and help stabilize watershed in the community. Farmers will be trained to closely monitor the trees, and care for them to improve environmental and economic security.
The impact the trees will have on Seling and the surrounding areas is monumental. It is estimated that the trees planted will capture approximately 2.5 million kg of CO2 from the atmosphere during their lifetimes.
The funds will cover recruitment, farmer training, raising the seedlings, distribution, planting, and monitoring of the trees. In addition to this, any trees lost due to natural causes will be replanted over the course of 2 years.
How You Can Help
Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect addition to any picnic, Spring gathering and dinner on the patio… but our Sauvignon Blanc can do so much more. This light, crisp and refreshing white wine not only tastes great, but it also helps make a huge impact on the environment.
Whether you buy one bottle, a case, or one of our many wine gift crates, every purchase of our California Sauvignon Blanc helps plant even more trees through our global reforestation project.

Trees4Trees™ is a non-profit foundation that works to empower local communities through reforestation and education. Trees4Trees™ distributes tree seedlings of high value species: teak, mahogany, albizia and more to local farmers.
The organization was established in 2008 and has helped over 13,000 farming families get started in community forestry and has planted over 1.3 million trees. Every tree planting location is recorded by GPS so that the trees can be tracked via Google maps.
We appreciate everything you do to help us spread the word about our mission to celebrate and serve the world. Please continue to check back for updates on our community forest and the progress we are making in Seling!
