    Lazarus Artisan Goods‘s story = their artisans’ stories, which chronicle the courage and determination required to invest in oneself.

    In rural Honduras, young people are often pulled out of school before 6th grade in order to support their farming-focused family. Although it feels impossible to imagine, it tells of a worldwide reality. Lazarus Artisan Goods artisans begin as students in a 3-year paid vocational program by our sister organization, Mission LazarusStudents go to school for free, including their books, a daily lunch, and a daily stipend. Lazarus Artisan Goods equip them with marketable skills so they can support themselves and their families for years to come. 

    Students learn to apply familiar farming concepts to themselves and their future. By graduation, they understand that the reward for investing in yourself is a lifetime of dignity and purpose and grow to become tenaciously committed to bettering their lives and the lives of their families.

    100% of Lazarus Artisan Goods profits go back into these educational programs. The artisans love what they do, and they couldn’t do it without your purchases.

    The Last Month to Enjoy a Fun Summer Party, with Kind of Wild Vegan and Organic Wines!

    Feel good heading into the weekend drinking wines you can feel good about. Well, it is always feeling better to drink wines with friends. September is literally the last month to host a fun Summer party. No matter in your backyard or by the pool. You need good wines to make it a real good party. The good wine means – with every glass you pour you can feel great knowing you are enjoying delicious wines that are not only free of unwanted additives but are supporting organic growers all across the globe!

    Kind of Wild is a globally sourced, organic and vegan certified direct-to-consumer wine brand in the USA. The collection is a portfolio of six organic wines sourced and crafted from wine-growing appellations in France, Spain, Italy, Austria, Argentina, and Chile.

    Over the last 40 years, Kind of Wild has been working to build relationships with the world’s finest organic growers. They believe in providing these growers with a fair wage, and in turn, they treat the planet fairly. Organic growers help the soil remain healthy, creating a habitat for infinite microorganisms that contribute not only to healthy soil, but healthy air and water as well.

    Kind of Wild has torn the label back and ventured into the wild to return with this collection of world-class wines made with organic grapes. They have all been buying organic produce and other naturally sourced foods. They have tasted the difference and felt better for it. But it seems finding exceptional wine made from organic grapes is a little harder. That’s why Kind of Wild was started.

    Syrah-Grenache Rosé

    The perfect pairing for a warm summer evening? French Rosé! Packed with fresh energy this wine will welcome you into a truly Mediterranean experience! Kind of Wild discovered this distinctly chic Rosé from a 3rd generation female winemaker in the South of France. It’s truly a Mediterranean experience — superbly fresh, with energy and verve. There are layers of watermelon, cherries, and strawberry fruit, accented by notes of rose petal and minerality. It will have you daydreaming you’re cruising the riviera soaking up a pink sunset silhouette sparkling over clear waters.

    Sauvignon Blanc

    Get outside for the afternoon with a bottle of superbly fresh Sauvignon Blanc! Even better stock up with a few bottles, and set yourself up for whatever occasion comes your way next. A guaranteed way to brighten up your week. This is a quintessential Sauvignon Blanc from a unique and mostly unknown corner of Chile, quite close to the Pacific Ocean. It will have you wondering where this place has been all your life. Platinum in hue, this zesty Sauvignon Blanc seduces with bright aromas and flavors of fresh peach, mandarin blossom, chamomile, and jasmine – distinct flavors that evoke its coastal origins. Pack a few glasses and buy an alpaca for this mouthwatering adventure.

    Grüner Veltliner

    With summer is till here there really is nothing better than getting together, enjoying some fresh air and most importantly… drinking good wine! This zippy Grüner Veltliner comes from a young and dynamic multi-generational family winemaker in Austria. Racy and exotic, with a deep golden hue and aromas of sun-kissed citrus, schist and limestone. The palate shows lemony overtones, racy acidity and white pepper spice. It will transport you to the Alps and have you yodeling from the hilltops during your ski après.

    Montepulciano d’Abruzzo D.O.C.

    Go ahead, invite your friends over for a dinner party. Kind of Wild stumbled upon this lovely and expressive Montepulciano hailing from the back of the boot, right off the Adriatic Sea. An exhilarating bouquet of ripe cherry mingles with dried red roses and spice notes. The palate shows juicy length which develops with a toasted oak finish. Lay back in your hammock and shoot the breeze and you’ll be saying “tutto bene” like a local.

    You make healthy choices that align with your values when it comes to the food you eat. Shouldn’t you be able to say the same for the wine you drink? Kind of Wild Wines allows you to do just that! When you drink Kind of Wild Wines you can rest assured that these sustainable wines have been produced in ways that: Improve soil health; Diminish soil erosion; Keep natural waters free from chemicals; Have a positive, and lasting impact on the local ecosystem. Cheers to finally finding a wine that tastes good AND rewilds the planet
