One Planet Organic Granola has partnered with Bay Area food banks for a “Share Your Bag of Granola!” promotion. For every bag of One Planet purchased at Mollie Stone’s now through March 30, 2013, One Planet will donate a bag of wholesome granola to our local food banks. Founder & CMO Sandra Madanat told us: “We created our company with the intention of being aware, not only of the food we eat but the community around us. We are thankful to be in a position to partner with our local Food Banks and are thrilled to give back to our community!”
One Planet is dedicated to nourishing families all over the planet with delicious and organic foods made from the highest quality ingredients. Mother and daughter team Rana and Sandra Madanat launched One Planet from their small town café in Ross, California in 2010. Their company believes their granola and sustainable practices reflect the deep belief that living consciously is the essence of making our own well being.

When we found out about the heart touching and inspiring background of Colby Red Wine, we got in touch with the winemaker, Daryl Groom, to get the full story.
Daryl Groom is an Australia native that has been in the wine industry for over 25 years. He spent 16 years as senior red winemaker at Penfolds in Australia before joining Alexander Valley’s Geyser Peak Winery in 1989. There, he earned eight national and international awards for Winery of the Year and Winemaker of the Year. When Geyser Peak was acquired by Beam Wine Estates, Daryl became the VP of Operations & Winemaking and managed a variety of their wineries throughout Northern California and the Central Coast. Today, he produces Colby Red Wine in California and is the winemaker at Groom Wineries in the Barossa Valley of Southern Australia.

Proceeds from sales of Colby Red at Mollie Stone’s will go to local cardiac health organizations.
