Social Responsibility

 

Liquid Geography

 

Olé & Obrigado created Liquid Geography Mencía Rosé in 2013 as a way to give back and express our gratitude for the support and good karma that has helped our company thrive over the years. We are proud to be donating 50% of the profits on Liquid Geography wines to organizations that make the world a better place.

Liquid Geography Mencía Rosé currently benefits two causes: Wheeling Forward, supporting those with disabilities, and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, devoted to cancer care, research, and education

In light of the incredible success of the original Liquid Geography Mencia Rosé, in 2021 we also introduced two additional Liquid Geography wines to benefit other causes:

Since launching Liquid Geography, we have raised over $500,000, getting us closer to our goal to achieve $1,000,000 in total donations by 2025.  

Our intention as a company is to continue bringing attention and donating to important causes through additional Liquid Geography wines. To help us make a difference, please contact us at oleobrigado@oleobrigado.com 

Join us in bringing hope through wine to these wonderful causes!

In the spirit of a United Food & Beverage Industry, all of us at Olé & Obrigado would like to thank you for helping us raise over $65,000 for restaurant worker relief funds. The Restaurant Relief Pack was a retail program we launched to donate 50% of the profits from the sales of select wines from March 2020 through August 2020 to national (Restaurant Workers' Community Foundation) and local organizations providing direct relief to hospitality employees. We extend our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to all the supporters and the 300+ stores across the US who have chosen to #HelpUsHelp by participating. Together with you and our retail partners, our team has sold thousands of cases of wine and hosted nearly 100 virtual wine tastings in support of this important cause.
