Nearly a decade after they released warring casual-hookup romcoms in the same calendar year, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have set aside their creative differences to unite behind a pair of worthy causes: wine and coronavirus relief.
In an Instagram video posted Sunday where the former That '70s Show costars come off like space aliens who have never been on camera before, Kutcher and Kunis revealed their upcoming collaboration with Walla Walla winery Nocking Point: a Willamette Valley pinot called Quarantine, the profits of which will go toward SNAP grants, PPE acquisition, and Feeding America's Food Fund. Check out the full video below:
Preorders for the bottles—$50 for two, 2018 vintage—are live on Nocking Point's website, with an estimated early May shipping date. While Kunis and Kutcher are billed as "consulting winemakers," the muscle behind the operation is Precept Wines's Sarah Cabot, formerly of Belle Pente in Carlton.
Also, I cannot stress this enough: the video is so deeply weird. You would think "Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher make a wine to help the pandemic" would be the weirdest part of this story, and I don't want to undercut that, but really look at that video. Did Ashton Kutcher write himself cue cards? Do either of them know what a "shout out" is? Why does their repartee as a married couple call to mind flirty acquaintances being left alone for the first time ever?
