THIS WINE’S STORY:
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 (Stephen and Cass were quarantined in Palm Springs and couldn’t get to the wine!) plus a handful of design concepts later, and their “QUARANTINE” wine idea was set to become a reality. They unanimously landed on a beautiful Oregon Pinot Noir with an interactive label that they’re all super proud to share with everyone. 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. We hope that you enjoy this wine as much as we do and we can’t thank you enough for your support!
