In 2005, Jake Kloberdanz was a district sales manager for E&J Gallo Winery. In August 2006, one of his childhood friends was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Kloberdanz had observed that products supporting charity sold well in grocery stores, and he began planning what would become ONEHOPE. Kloberdanz and seven of his coworkers left Gallo to start ONEHOPE as a charitable business in 2007. The company was launched with $10,000 and an initial partnership with Sonoma Wine Company and vintner David Eliot to create its wine. The company's first wine, a 2005 merlot, sold 8,000 bottles in its first year.
Mama D's Italian Kitchen, a local restaurant in Newport Beach, California, became ONEHOPE Wine's first commercial account in 2007. Albertsons started carrying ONEHOPE Wine in 2008. Young's Market Company became the company's first distributor in 2009.
