Everyone knows that with their surplus of funds, celebrities tend to dabble in other interests, such as investing in personal alcohol products. While the television hit Scandal serves Olivia Pope-themed wine and P. Diddy gets jiggy with Ciroc vodka’s multi-flavor campaign, there are several female celebs that are currently crushing the wine market. From Drew Barrymore to Brangelina, we’ll walk you through the most celebrated famous female-owned wine brands this year has to offer:
- Fergie’s Ferguson Crest:
Established in 2006 be she and her father, Pat Ferguson, Ferguson Crest wines are produced on the Ferguson family’s own California vineyard. Featuring a Syrah, a Cabernet, two Viogniers, and a red blend naturally named “Fergalicious,” each bottle is produced through organic and sustainable practices that are intended to preserve the richness of the land. A 2011 bottle of Fergalicious costs $35.
- Drew Barrymore’s Carmel Road Pinot Grigio:
Partnering with Monterey County’s Carmel Road Winery, Miss Barrymore produced this bright and crisp pinot using notes of Asian pear and honeydew melon. Inspired by her travels through Italy, Barrymore created this wine in honor of her family. “I just love wine,” states Barrymore, “and it was the right thing to do for me to start with a Pinot Grigio because I think that’s where my wine journey as a wine drinker started—was drinking Pinot with my girlfriends. That was pretty much the greatest way you could spend time, just girl-talking and sharing what your day was [like].” We couldn’t agree more. A 2013 bottle of Monterey Pinot Grigio costs $15.
- Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s Miraval Rose:
Harvested and bottled directly at the dynamic duo’s Chateau Miraval in France, Brangelina’s Miraval Rose 2012 was ranked 84 among Wine Spectator’s top 100 wines of the year list. The power couple’s 1,200 acre vineyard obviously produces a fine wine, as all 6,000 bottles of the rose sold out within 5 hours of its release last March. This rose’s refined flavor of berries, tangerine and melon has wine experts toasting to its delicious taste. A 2012 bottle of Miraval Rose costs $25.
- Kate Hudson and Matthew Bellamy’s Hudson Bellamy Wine:
Partnering with her fiancé, Matthew Bellamy, to create Hudson Bellamy Wines, Kate Hudson is taking a unique path to promote her brand. By teaming up with Zynga’s mobile game, Farmville 2: Country Escape, Hudson is able to endorse her wines in an exclusive, simulated world. Players follow Hudson’s overall-clad avatar through the game to make their own Hudson Bellamy Wine in the game’s virtual winery. “FarmVille 2: Country Escape is a fun and unique way to share our Hudson Bellamy Wines with a wide array of people,” Hudson said in a statement. “Our wines are small lot, so the rustic, community environment in the game fits right in with our values of making a sustainable, local product.” A bottle of Sauvignon Blanc costs $30, with Rose of Syrah costing $45 and Pinot Noir costing $50.
