Celebs love to share their passions with the rest of us normal folk, and if it brings in a little cash, for charity or otherwise, all the better.
Paul Newman was one of the first to create and endorse a food line (with proceeds going to help out the needy) and you can’t walk into a makeup department without seeing Drew Barrymore’s Flower brand or J-Lo’s Glow. Then their are celebrity tequila lines, which could be the most numerous of all.
Celebrities have their names on everything from shoes to guitars, so it’s only natural that one of the fastest-growing markets, wine, would have its share of star-power. We’ve made a list of celebrity wines that you might not know about, and are relatively inexpensive to try and easy to find.
5 Reasonably Priced Celebrity Wines—Cheers!
Snoop Dogg’s 19 Crimes Cali Red and Cali Rosé – $12
“The wine is from Northern California’s Lodi region with a smoky taste,” hip-hop star Snoop told CNN last August about his Cali Red. “19 Crimes allowed me to come up with the perfect blend for me. Strong, bold and incredible—just like the D-O-Double-G. I was involved in the tasting process and just knew from the first sip, everyone was gonna love it.”
Cameron Diaz Avaline – Tasting Duo $39
Actress Cameron Diaz went into the wine biz with friend and entrepreneur Katherine Power just last year. “In a few years down the line, people won’t even know I was part of it and they’ll be pleasantly surprised that I was one of the co-founders,” Diaz told CNN. The pair’s first two wines include a crisp, floral Spanish white and a zesty, fresh French rosé. Cameron Diaz Avaline — that’s toast-worthy!
These best friends and actresses launched a line of low-calorie, low-carb wines. They told the folks at Wine spectator that the goal is to reach “wine lovers who enjoyed active, health-conscious lifestyles similar to their own.” Produced in Napa, California, the Fresh Vine Wine collection features a California Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, California Rosé, and a Limited Reserve Napa Cabernet. Yum!
According to the singer and wine entrepreneur, “The name Sun Goddess evokes powerful childhood memories that I carry with me today. I’ve always loved the sun, and as a child, I always tried to capture the sun’s warmth and energy. It was magical to me, and it’s with that spirit that my mom began calling me Sun Goddess.” The Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc are particularly refreshing.
Francis Ford Coppola Wines – Sofia Rosé $20
Here’s one of the O.G. celebrity wines. Film director Sofia Coppola has been bottling for years and years, and it’s still one of the best brands you can buy. Sofia, a sub-brand named after director and wine baron Francis Ford Coppola’s daughter, is a widely-loved favorite thanks to its lighter offerings, including as Riesling blends, rosés, and sparkling editions. Deliziosa.
Of course there’s one of our own favorite celebrity wines — Danica Patrick’s Danica Rosé.
