From owning clothing lines to sports teams, it seems like celebrities do it all these days. Recently, many have even started to sell their own alcohol. There are plenty of bands that have their own craft beer, but let's give the wine-lovers reason to rejoice, shall we?
Sip like your favorite celebs with these seven wines.
Sting - II Palagio
In 1999, Sting and his wife, Trudie Styler, purchased a 900-acre estate in Tuscany called Il Palagio. The estate has a long history of winemaking, and the couple planned to keep it that way. They hired wine consultant Alan York and expanded the vineyard. Each Tuscan red is named for a popular Sting song, such as "Sister Moon" and "When We Dance." Il Palagio has gotten more attention with the release of Message in a Bottle in 2011, which is made of sangiovese, syrah, and merlot grapes. Message in a Bottle, and other Ill Palagio wines, can be purchased on Amazon for around $22.
Dave Matthews - Dreaming Tree Wines
Musician Dave Matthews paired up with Sonoma County winemaker Sean McKenzie to create the series Dreaming Tree Wines, named after his band's track "The Dreaming Tree." The series includes five different wines: a white wine, chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon, red blend, and pinot noir. Dreaming Tree is unique because of how eco-friendly it is -- the labels are made of recycled paper, the bottles are a quarter pound lighter than the standard and require less fuel to make, and the winery uses solar power. Bottles retail around $10-$14 and can be found online and at select Total Wine & More stores in Dallas.
Train - Save Me, San Francisco Wine Co.
"As a band, we have always connected with our friends and fans through wine and music," says Train guitarist Jimmy Stafford. The band teamed up with ACME Wine Movers and started Save Me, San Francisco Wine Co., named for its 2009 album. There are six bottles in the collection, all named after Train songs, like Drops of Jupiter California Red Wine and Soul Sister Pinot Noir. One of the coolest aspects of the company is that it donates a part of its proceeds to the nonprofit Family House, which provides temporary housing to families of ill children. A bottle typically runs for $9.99 and can be found online or at select Kroger stores in Dallas.
Drew Barrymore - Barrymore Wines
When Drew Barrymore decided to make wine, she wanted to create something that she could share with family and friends. The actress collaborated with Carmel Road in Monterey, Calif. to create a pinot grigio, described as bright and crisp with lemon drop, Asian pear and honeydew melon flavors. Barrymore plans to release more styles, too, such a pinot noir due out this fall. Look for it at select Total Wine & More stores in Dallas or order it online for $14.99.
Kyle MacLachlan - Pursued by Bear
MacLachlan has a very successful acting career, from starring in Sex in the City to Desperate Housewives. What many might not know, however, is MacLachlan is also interested in wine. In 2005, MacLachlan paired up with winemaker Eric Dunham to create Pursued by Bear in the Yakima Valley, paying tribute to his hometown of Walla Walla, Wash. Pursued by Bear is a famous stage direction from Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale. The brand specializes in cabernet sauvignon. Prices for each type of wine vary, but usually run from about $50 to $75.
Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie - Chateau Miraval Rosé
In 2013, Brangelina paired up with the Perrin family of Château Beaucastel vineyard in France to produce Chateau Miraval Rosé, a blend of carignan, syrah, rolle, and grenanche. Its release was highly anticipated -- the first 6,000 bottles sold within five hours. Chateau Miraval Rosé proved that it was worth the hype and made the cut as one of Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2013. (The Dallas Morning News' wine panel also loved it.) Find Chateau Miraval Rosé at many stores in the Dallas area, such as PK's Wine and Spirits and select Spec's, for $23.99 to $25.99.
Yao Ming - Yao Family Wines
Yao Ming founded Yao Family Wines in 2011 after he retired from the NBA. Yao Family Wines is based out of Napa Valley, Calif. and sells more premium wine in China than any other California winery, according to Business Insider. Offerings include two acclaimed cabernets and a Napa Valley Red Wine called Napa Crest. Wines don't come cheap; the bottles usually sell for around $100. Look for Yao Family Wines at select Sigel's or purchase the wine online.
