Great wine to serve at a “crappy dinner party”

ONEHOPE California Cabernet Sauvignon is an $11.99 bottle that has the surprising depth of a high-end Napa Valley Cab (in other words: tastes expensive but it’s affordable!) So, it’s an easy choice for fall comfort crockpot magic like tangy balsamic pork tenderloin (on my fall / winter rotation) or a rustic beef pot roast (an elevated version of the classic). Plus, the clean, chic design of the label makes it an oooh-la-la accessory for a dinner party table or a bar cart.


Need an excuse to entertain? Here’s an idea: throw a party where you, the hostess, will actually have a blast.

Stress-Free Party Prep / Send a fall-themed evite to your fun friends – because who has time for mail? Premium Evites are ad-free, so just as special as mail except exponentially easier to RSVP. Do all of the work the morning of your soirĂ©e: throw a pot roast in the crock pot, set the table with the wedding fine china you’ve probably used twice, and don’t even THINK about peeking at Pinterest for ideas. Conversation and comfort food with great wine will beat out an overly styled dinner party, every time. Open a bottle of wine when your friends arrive, and be the host that’s having fun instead of sprucing up the elaborate centerpiece or adding finely chopped chives to the whipped goat cheese endive bites.

Give it a Swirl

ONEHOPE California Cabernet Sauvignon

Pairs with
pretty, feminine dresses, pleasant fall evenings with fires, and something casual-cool like a charcuterie centerpiece or a comfort classic like pot roast. Weekdays, weeknights, nestled on the couch with HBO or seated at a formal dining room table laughing with friends… this is a wine to keep in stock.

You’ll pay $11.99 on, and they will ship it to your doorstep.
