About XOBC:  

XOBC Cellars was founded in 2019 by multi Grammy-winning artist Brandi Carlile, her wife Catherine, and their friends, Jeri and Amy Andrews. Their wines showcase the quality and refinement that makes Washington wine unparalleled. XOBC Cellars has struck a chord that’s rarely if ever been heard - boutique exceptionalism coupled with a culture of rugged and radical inclusion. These women fused music and wine with a common goal of making a difference by donating proceeds from XOBC Cellars to Brandi’s Looking Out Foundation. A true outlier, showcasing female & LGBTQ+ leadership, this team of women in wine has raised the bar for the entire industry.

Drenched in community and friendship, their winery is an enviable example of a brand and collective that can contribute to the greater good, proving their trademark that raising a glass can make a difference, too.

Join XOBC's community of Collectors and receive complimentary shipping on your first wine club order by entering ADVENTURUS2022 in the club notes section during the sign-up process.

Kates

About Kate's Real Food:

My name is Kate, the founder of Kate's Real Food, and I’d like to share a little about our story and growing brand.

My passion for organic food and simplicity developed at a really young age. My Mom grew up on a family farm in NY that was passed on through generations spanning over 200 years. As an adult, I worked for a farm in Victor, ID called Cosmic Apple Gardens that really helped shape my perspective on food, caring for animals and our land, and the importance of soil health and organic agriculture. 

In search of adventure, I moved to Jackson Hole, WY. I spent my day's backcountry skiing, hiking, and biking. To sustain my busy lifestyle fueled by the great outdoors, I began making great-tasting, whole-food, energy bars that conveniently fit in my pocket. I used the same food values I was taught during my time on the farm and incorporated them into my recipes.

Soon, I had a local fan-base who insisted I sell my bars. There began my vision to inspire ‘the good life' - to enhance experiences, live a life of texture, and let delicious, organic foods be an integral part of life’s journey. After a few years of continued encouragement, I finally decided to take on my greatest adventure: Kate’s Real Food.

Our USDA-certified organic snacks can now be found in 4,000+ retail locations across the country, including Whole Foods, REI, H-E-B, Amazon.com, and more.

UST

ABOUT UST:

Since 1936 ust has been creating survival, camping and outdoor equipment. Recently, we moved headquarters from Jacksonville, FL up to Columbia, MO…and we’ve taken this opportunity to re-imagine what ust can be moving forward. The ust crew is driven by our calling to explore outdoors. We feel incredibly lucky to have the rolling hills and hollers of the Ozark Mountains for our backyard…product testing, exploring, work, play…. the lines get blurry. Our ever-present drive to “be outdoors” translates into reliable, problem-solving gear for you to use in your own outdoor adventures. As a brand, our goal is to inspire and cultivate people’s love of all things outside. We set out on this path with strong intention going forward… to create gear that allows EVERYONE to enjoy the activities that give us so much happiness.

We appreciate that AdventurUs Women makes getting outside approachable to every type of person from any background!
