Our Com­mit­ment

Our Com­mit­ment: Sup­port Diver­si­ty & Inclu­sion in the Wine Indus­try with resources for our employ­ees and the next gen­er­a­tion of wine leaders.

“I can­not think of a bet­ter way to sup­port the next gen­er­a­tion of young BIPOC wine pro­fes­sion­als than with schol­ar­ships at the top uni­ver­si­ties in the heart of America's wine country.”

— Charles Wood­son
Charles Wood­son & O'Neill Fam­i­ly Wine Scholarship

O’Neill Vint­ners & Dis­tillers with Charles Wood­son are pleased to announce the Charles Wood­son & O’Neill Fam­i­ly Wine Schol­ar­ship, a new series of col­lege schol­ar­ships with Cal­i­for­nia Poly­tech­nic State Uni­ver­si­ty San Luis Obis­po and Sono­ma State University.

The schol­ar­ships aim to recruit and retain high-achiev­ing Black, Indige­nous, Peo­ple of Col­or (BIPOC) inter­est­ed in pur­su­ing a career in the wine industry.
