Include O Wines in your celebration-send a girl to college

8 Aug

O Wines provided me with samples of this product. The opinions are honest and our own. It was an honor to work with them.

My husband and I love spending time together and often take the time to reflect on why we feel so blessed.  It doesn’t always have to be a full production; often we just grab a glass of wine and sit together in front of the fireplace.  Yes, I love the weekends away too, but rarely find the time to accomplish this feat.


With Beloved’s recent graduation and transition into adulthood, we spend alot of time praying for her future and laughing about the long road we’ve already traveled.  As we look ahead to college, we wanted to find a way to encourage her and other girls to reach their goals.

During our research, we found that O Wines is a company with a mission to fund college scholarships for low income capable young women.  Each purchase of their delicious wines, helps send another promising ingénue to college.  Hey, if you are going to enjoy your wine, isn’t is nice to know that you can select a brand that builds up our future generations?


O Wines was created in 2006 in Woodinville, Washington by Stacy Lill and Kathy Johanson.  Their O Wines Opportunity for Success Scholarship program has raised more than $300K to support 52 college scholarships. Each scholarship is $20K paid in increments annually over 4 years.  Most of the scholarship recipients are the first members of their families to attend college.  Talk about changing a life path!


Just Plane Dad and I love just about any wine flavors, although he is partial to the bolder reds.  We tried their Red Wine and Chardonnay and found both to be delicious, sweet and perfect for pairing with dinner or alone.   


O Wines Chardonnay· O Wines 2011 Columbia Valley Chardonnay is a fresh and lively, lightly oaked style; its aromas of pear and baking spice pair well with grilled fish and mango salsa, and kale salad.  Priced around $13.


O Wines Red Wine· O Wines 2010 Columbia Valley Red Blend is a delicious Washington fruit forward blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah; its aromas and flavors of blueberry jam, baking spice, cocoa and cherry, pair well with pizza, grilled burgers, or meat and veggie skewers.  Priced around $15.

I thought it was most interesting that the “O” stood for Opportunity.  That’s exactly what we can all offer when purchasing this amazing brand.
