Married celebs Mila and Ashton Kutcher have launched a Willamette Valley Oregon Pinot Noir with an interactive label as a “Quarantine” Wine, 100% of whose profits will go to various relief funds to provide medical equipment, the buying and delivery of ventilators, safe access to food and cash grants for families in need during this Coronavirus Pandemic.
Ashton and Mila Quarantine Wine
A handful of weeks ago Nocking Point co-founder Andrew Harding got a call from his friend Ashton. Mila had an idea to create a QUARANTINE-themed wine that could be used to raise proceeds for multiple COVID-19 response efforts that she, Ashton, and several friends were putting their efforts into.
The NP team obviously loved the idea and instantly sprang into action on sourcing the best available blends possible and dug right into bringing the Kutcher’s label design and creative vision to life. One virtual blind wine tasting session over Facetime with Jen, Drew, Mila, and Ashton plus a handful of design concepts later, and their “QUARANTINE” wine idea was set to become a reality. The front label of this wine is meant to be written on by YOU.
100% of the profits from this wine go to the charities listed below who are all doing critical and incredible work during these unprecedented times. The Kutchers hope that you enjoy this wine as much as they do and they can’t thank you enough for your support!

In addition to the profits from your purchase going to the great causes listed below, you can take action by spreading the word and getting even more people involved. Crack open a bottle of this wine, enjoy a virtual happy hour with a friend or loved one, and write (or draw!) who you’re toasting to from the comfort of your own home.

PROFITS FROM THE SALE OF THIS WINE WILL PROUDLY GO TO:

2) Direct Relief — providing medical equipment / PPE to frontline workers and EMS workers
3) Frontline Responders Fund — Buying and delivering PPE and ventilators to medical facilities
