It buys time to save lives.

“In order to stay at home and get paid by the U.S., you have to have a doctor’s note in hand, which is not immediately available for a lot of people who are at risk of contracting the virus,” said Ashley Trout, Founder & Winemaker of Vital Winery. “A day of unpaid work for many of these crew members is simply not an option, so this fund helps buy time for the whole crew to get tested and stay safe.”
