Drink Better by Olé & Obrigado

I have always admired an importer that supports good causes. Such is the case of Olé & Obrigado. First, I came across their Restaurant Relief Found Campaign last year. And now again, I came across a modern wine monthly shipment with an opportunity to discover exciting new wines from Spain & Portugal while supporting family wineries and causes that make the world a better place. Through Drink Better by Olé & Obrigado, you can purchase special edition mixed cases, with 10% of the proceeds going to a non-profit organization. 

Drink Better and Support Charitable Causes

Drink Better by Olé & Obrigado is not a wine club, though: you join a mailing list for free, and when you receive the monthly email, you can decide if you want to buy or not, with no commitments. 

For instance, I received the March Shipment that included two premium Rioja Wines. In addition, the collaboration between Alberto Orte “La Antigua Clásico” and Olé & Obrigado supports the CARE’s Ukraine Crisis Fund this month.  

CARE is a global leader within a worldwide movement dedicated to ending poverty. Furthermore, they work around the globe to save lives, defeat poverty, and achieve social justice. For this collaboration, we will donate to their Ukraine Crisis Fund. CARE provides support to partners on the ground, sending lifesaving food, water, and hygiene kits to the most vulnerable in Ukraine.

The wines

Let’s get back to the wines I received on the Dink Better by Olé & Obrigado March shipment, La Antigua Clásico Crianza and La Antigua Clásico Reserva. These wines are a labor of love hailing from the historic but relatively unknown subzone of Sierra de la Demanda.  

Sierra de la Demanda is one of the most historic yet unknown subzones of Rioja. The Winemaker Alberto Orte works with ancient vines and clones of Garnacha and Viura. Alberto is a visionary winemaker. He is bringing back a style of wine that was the soul of Rioja in the early 20th century. Orte is emphasizing freshness, elegance, and age-ability. Moreover, the vineyards in Sierra de la Demanda are super remote. The parcels are tiny and steep, making it impossible to mechanize and requiring vineyard work to be done by hand. 

I can’t be more satisfied with this shipment, knowing that I am enjoying great handcrafted Rioja wines and supporting a noble and philanthropic cause, especially during these chaotic world times.
