Win the Ultimate California Road Trip

At Mt. Brave we like to #DrinkBravely. To us, it’s about embracing a spirit of adventure and a sense of discovery in the every day– be it reaching the vista after a long hike, achieving a new personal best, or of course, uncorking a bottle of Mt. Brave at the end of the journey to celebrate.

In the quest to win the ultimate California road trip and over $13,000 in adventure gear, we asked you to join the adventure and share what #DrinkBravely means to you. From spelunking in the caves of Brazil to taking the plunge and proposing to your partner, to thrill-seeking stories and cross-country adventures, we’ve loved every minute of seeing your #DrinkBravely moments.​

After narrowing down the entries, we revealed our top five finalists and asked YOU to help us choose your favorite #DrinkBravely moment on INSTAGRAM. We’re thrilled to announce the Grand Prize Winner:

Grand Prize Winner

My #DrinkBravely moment isn't that I reached the mountain summit but that I got out of bed and faced the day. My Dad passed away from COVID and grief is overwhelming. On days when I think I can't get outside, I try to remember that it doesn't get better unless I do. Small victories are brave.
