Welcome to MEMBER NOTES, the place where our members get the download on what happened recently at NP, what’s ahead, and how they can get the most out of their membership and our AWESOME member community. Let’s go…
🏃🏽 26.2 MILES IN NYC THIS NOVEMBER IN SUPPORT OF KEEPING OUR CHILDREN SAFEOur good friends Ashton and Mila have some of the biggest hearts we’ve ever encountered and put philanthropy at the top of their priorities at all times. They’ve made impacts both publicly and privately that have made lasting effects on people and causes in need and we are so proud to call them friends of ours. Thorn protects our kids, and we’re here to support them in every way possible.
When Ashton offered me a spot to run alongside him and his team in support of Thorn, of course my answer was instantly “yes”. I’ve been active my whole life, I’ve been running 2-3 times a week for years, but I’ve never stretched it out past 4 or 5 miles at a time. At the time that I write this, I’m at 12 miles for my long runs and I’ve got a 13.5-miler mapped out for this Sunday. Barring anything unexpected, I’m as excited about crossing that finish line in NYC in November as I’ve been about anything I’ve worked toward in years, and I’ll have my family there to watch me (hopefully) make it happen.
I want to say a special thank you to the people who have already donated to Thorn on behalf of my running to support the cause. So, so cool of each of you. Stephen (big kiss for you), Justin, Amy, Ann, Esther, Nadine, Kathryn, Kathy, Mary, and Eve…thank you for your early support. For the rest of you, if you’re so inclined, there are two ways you can support Thorn through my participation in the NY marathon this year:
OUR LATEST DROPS
Year 10 Throwbacks. Let’s go! 🎂 In celebration of our 10th year here at NP, we’re bringing back our favorite artwork since the beginning
NP Customs not only allows YOU to create custom labels on wines that we’ll hand-prepare for you, but it also allows US to have some fun and circle back on some of our favorite artwork from past labels and offer them up to you on a super limited basis (and so we can enjoy some on our own too 😎. We just cherry-picked some of our all-time favorite pieces of original artwork, put a tiny new spin on them, and will be rolling them out on a weekly basis for the next few months. Follow us on social to hear when each new label will drop and check your inboxes and MOVE FAST to get your hands on each one. These wines won’t last… we’re literally making 2-3 cases of each one!
🎉 Let’s party again in Walla Walla on September 17th.
*MAJOR NEWS ALERT*: WINE3 is launching soon.
📈 Know anything about NFTs AND you love wine? Then you’re gonna love Wine3.
We think the most meaningful NFT projects bring instant, IRL utility to everyone who participates. And, we know that like NFTs, wine has always been a true collector’s item too. Enter Wine3, the first place (that we know of) that uses NFTs to unlock access to truly collectible wines, and that allows holders of high-value NFTs of their own to commercialize their IP/asset via wines as well. It’s really simple, really powerful, creates value for participants of all kinds, and leverages the future of commerce for all of us…while still putting a smile on your face by sending wine right to your door. Learn more at wine3.xyz and stay tuned, our launch is about to be BIG!

We love that. We’re here to help you unclutter your inbox so not only are we committed to sending emails only when essential, but we’re offering you better ways to keep in touch.

KEEP THIS ON YOUR RADAR: NP Customs
🎨 Let us make YOUR OWN wine label for you! You know us for our collabs and we love them. Over the years we’ve been asked hundreds of times by friends, partners, and members of our community to help THEM make THEIR OWN labels with us. For logistical reasons it was never feasible...until NOW. Welcome to NP Customs, where YOU are the designer, art director, photographer, and curator of your very own wine. Here’s how it works:
- Pick your varietal – Cab, Red Blend, Rosé, White, or Sparkling Rosé
- Select the # of bottles you want to make
- Upload your image/design during the checkout process
- Sit back, relax, and your wines will land on your doorstep within 4-6 weeks
We’re already seeing some incredible designs and photos coming in on new NP Customs orders. We’ll showcase a handful of them soon. In the meantime, here are a few ideas and inspiration for your own NP Customs wine project that will certainly put a smile on everyone’s faces when they see it…and taste it!
