Ahead of Pride season Italian vineyard, Cantina Goccia, has launched a limited edition PRIDE capsule collection – a bespoke range of 12 colourful wines in the world’s first paper bottle – that will help to put LGBT+ rights on the map and contribute vital funds to local pride charities across the globe.
The new PRIDE collection features 12 distinct bottle designs comprising Cantina Goccia award-winning red and white wine. The bottles, each representing a colour of the LGBT+ Progress flag, feature LGBT icons that have fought for change and progress. Marsha P Johnson, Alan Turing and Laverne Cox are just some of the famous people immortalised in the collection.
Owner Ceri Parke said;
“We’re proud to be supporting LGBT+ community this year through our new limited edition PRIDE capsule collection. For every bottle sold, we’ll be donating funds to local charities that help to make the lives of the LGBT+ community better.
“Our new range honours the LGBT+ icons that have fought for change for the benefit of the community. Thanks to people like Laverne Cox, Harvey Milk and Barbara Gittings, the lives of millions of LGBT+ people across the world have been made better, but there is still much more to be done.”
The bottles, which can be bought as a collection of 12, will help to raise vital funds for charities across the globe. For every bottle purchased, Cantina Goccia will make a donation to a local charity of the purchasers’ choice. The new collection utilises the world’s first paper bottle, Frugal Bottle, a sustainable alternative to glass, which the vineyard has championed in the industry since it came to market back in June 2020.
“Pride events were designed to disrupt and start a conversation,” said Ceri. “Challenging the status quo is sometimes the only way to effect change – that’s what we’re doing with our paper bottle and that’s what those that advocate for equal rights do day in, day out.”
The wines will be available to purchase directly from Cantina Goccia from June onwards.
