Celebrities & Wine

They say to make a small fortune in wine, you must start with a large one. So it makes sense that celebrities buy and own wineries.  We’ve been getting news across the board about celebrity wines, and we’ve been stocking up on a few as they become available. Most recently, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt released their Miraval rose, produced on their own property in France and crafted by the Perrin family of Beaucastel fame. Given the serious and artisan nature of their acting, one can hope that they have put the same passion behind their wine. We encourage you to try some, as well as others from your favorite celebrities!

Miraval Rose: On pre-sale for now, this beautiful bottle hails from the Provence estate recently purchased by the Jolie-Pitt clan. They’re not messing around. With help from the Rhone-based Perrin family, proprietors of Chateau Beaucastel, the Jolie-Pitts are using the best of the region to release this rose, showcasing a beautiful package and what we hope to be a delicious wine.

Barrymore Pinot Grigio: This is a wine produced by Drew Barrymore. Seems that Drew was inspired by the journey wine takes – from grape to bottle – and wanted to create a wine that reflected her taste and style – fresh, dynamic, fun. Well, we agree, wine IS all about the journey and we think Drew is definitely all those things. The wine is from the northeast corner of Italy, and the label is done by Shepard Fairey, the same artist behind the Obama “Hope” poster.

Dreaming Tree: Dave Matthews is not only a talented crooner, but also a lover of wine. His Dreaming Tree label makes three wines from the North Coast – a Chardonnay, a Cabernet and a red blend. Give them a try while listening to some mellow music…

Top Chef Quickfire: A line of wines created by the Top Chef enterprise. They produce Zinfandel,  Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Grigio.
