National Wine Day 2020 isn’t going to be celebrated at a bar or winery, but brands are finding ways to give back during the pandemic. These wines are helping frontline workers, families struggling due to COVID-19 and more. Those celebrating National Wine Day on May 25 can give back at the same time with these charitable wines.

Ripe Life Wines is offering free shipping on The Clambake wines (which includes an unoaked chardonnay and limited edition rosé wine) in customers save and stay home. For every case bought, owner Mary McAuley is sending two complimentary bottles of wine to a deserving health care worker designated by the customer.

Messina Hof, a Texas winery, is helping customers send a bottle to a frontline worker with their Bottle of Thanks program.

Quarantine Wine was created by Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis with Nocking Point. The pinot noir will support four charities that help both healthcare professionals and families facing economic hardships. The couple and wine company will donate 100% of the profits to Direct Relief, Give Directly, Frontline Responders Fund and America’s Food Fund.

DuCard Vineyards released its Thank You Heroes Wine to honor frontline workers. Customers can buy a bottle to be delivered to a frontline worker in the Charlottesville, North Carolina area, or they can get the bottle shipped to their home to deliver themselves. Proceeds go to the Dr. Laura Breen Fund and the COVID relief grant program.

Signor Vineyards launched their Bottles for the Frontline campaign this month. The Fredericksburg, Texas winery is sending bottles to frontline workers, including medical personnel, grocery store cashiers and more.

Santa Margherita is donating $250,000 to multiple charities across the U.S. Their first two donations went to Meals on Wheels and the National Restaurant Association – Restaurant Employee Relief Fund. The company also donated a $50,000 portion of the $250,000 to Direct Relief, which works to help support frontline workers across the U.S. by providing necessary medical resources.

Acker announced a special auction on May 25 to benefit the United Sommeliers Foundation (USF). The group was formed to provide relief to furloughed sommeliers during the pandemic, and Acker serves as their exclusive auction partner for fundraising.

“Acker will be accepting auction consignments of wine and spirits to directly benefit the USF program, and will match an additional percentage on top of the proceeds from each lot sold so that the United Sommeliers Foundation will receive more than 100% of the hammer price of each lot,” a rep for the brand said.
