At OMvino we highly recommend all employees take two full weeks off, or one month working part-time, per year, to pursue a certification or personal goal. Employees are welcome to work from anywhere, including destinations abroad.

We have plenty of freedom of speech compared to many countries, but do you know how we keep that freedom of speech? By protecting it when it’s infringed upon. Let’s stand up and talk about the fact that label and advertising censoring in the food and beverage industry is an issue. Why?
