Celebrity Wines

Movie stars, athletes, musicians and all manner of celebrities frequently attach their name to a product with the intention of promoting the product, or themselves yet further. Sometimes the products are not as good as they should be. In the world of wine, I have so far come across 2 wines owned by celebrities that are serious enough to merit consideration. Firstly Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s Miraval. It is a Rosé from the Cotes de Provence Appellation, grown on their organic estate and made by Marc Perrin. We sell it for $24. George Lucas also makes several wines, I was particularly impressed with his Marin County Pinot Noir – Viandante del Cielo, made from grapes grown, (of course) in his Skywalker Vineyard. We sell this Pinot Noir for $32.
