Yup, you read that right. The That ‘70s Show ’s lead actors and, may we add, one of the hottest Hollywood couples Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis launched a new quarantine wine. Mila came up with the idea of creating a quarantined-themed wine to help raise proceeds for multiple COVID-19 response efforts. Ashton pitched the idea to the co-founder of Nocking Point, Andrew Harding. After a wine sourcing and wine-tasting, the idea turned into a reality. The Oregon Pinot Noir was then bottled. Here’s everything else you need to know about the launch.

1. The day Quarantine Wine was born

On April 19, 2020, Ashton Kutcher made a public announcement on Instagram about the launch of their Quarantine Wine. It said that 100% of the profits would go to COVID-19 response efforts. This makes us love the couple even more.

2. More info on the wine

Right after the launch, Ashton and Mila put up a video explaining how the label of the bottle is interactive, letting buyers scribble down who it’s being toasted to. The shout out from Ashton to Mila in this video is adorable, don’t miss it. Here are the charities these profits will go to.

3. GiveDirectly – Provides cash grants to families

This nonprofit allows people to make donations to the less fortunate directly in the form of cash grants with SNAP, a program. This will help provide cash relief to people most affected by the pandemic, such as those who have lost their jobs and can’t pay rent, among others.

4. Direct Relief – Provides medical equipment to frontline workers

With the cases of coronavirus skyrocketing, medical supplies are scarce, without which it’s difficult for doctors to perform the necessary tests. Direct Relief aims to curb this shortage by providing protective equipment and essential medical equipment to workers through emergency deliveries every day.

5. Frontline Responders Fund – Supplying PPE and ventilators

If a health worker is infected with the virus, they are kept in quarantine for at least 14 days. That means one member less to help. Protective gear, however, can help avoid that. This crowd-funding initiative by GoFundMe helps purchase and deliver critical supplies, such as masks, gloves, gowns, and ventilators to medical professionals in the country.

6. America’s Food Fund – Provides reliable safe access to food

While COVID-19 cases spiked, there were already about 37 million people who were unsure of where their next meal would come from. Thanks to yet another fundraiser by GoFundMe, a collaboration between Feeding America and World Central Kitchen, people now have reliable access to meals.

7. Let’s not forget the wines, shall we?

The wine is from a 2018 Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley. For $50, you get yourself two bottles of this masterpiece, and for members of the Nocking Point Wine Club, it’s just $40. The availability of this wine is still top-secret. According to the site, it should ship out early May.

8. Speaking of Willamette Valley, here’s a bit on the appellation front

The wine is made with Willamette Valley pinot noir grapes, and we cannot emphasize enough on how lovely that is! What’s certain is that the wine is something to look forward to, especially during this quarantine. Although, you will need to be over 21 if you want to receive this package.

9. A tiny bit on the consulting winemakers – The Kutcher family

Both actors have made their mark in Hollywood. After working together, Mila Kunis starred in hits like Black Swan and Friends With Benefits and Ashton Kutcher in The Ranch and No Strings Attached . The duo have been happily bound by the knot since 2015, and have two children, Wyatt and Dimitri.

10. And finally, the lead winemaker on the case, or grape

The lead winemaker is Sarah Cabot of Battle Creek Vineyards. If there is anyone who understands how to combine ultra-premium with Pinot Noir winemaking, it’s her. She has made wine in the Willamette Valley for eight consecutive years. So, there is no doubt she is the best person for this job.
