All the Details on Supernatural Star Jared Padalecki’s New Wine Line: 'I'm So Proud of This Awesome Juice'
Cheers to fall!
“We knew Jared would be the perfect person to kick off our new series of label collaborations with because he knows a ton about wine, frankly more than we do,” says Amell.
The vintage is a Chardonnay-based sparkling wine; the name Venatore comes from the Latin word for “hunter,” a reference to Padalecki’s Supernatural television role. The wine’s label is courtesy of Padalecki’s sister Megan.
“I’m so proud of this awesome juice I was able to be a part of,” he wrote on Instagram about the new line.
Padalecki joins the ranks of other celebrities stepping into the wine business, including John Legend’s Legend Vineyard Collection, Sting and Trudie Styler’s Il Palagio, Fergie’s Ferguson Crest, Kate Hudson’s Hudson Bellamy Wines, and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Chateau Miraval.
“Jared’s sparkling is a super approachable, light bodied sparkling that we sampled straight up and as mimosas,” Amell tells PEOPLE of the citrus blend. “It’s awesome and we’re all super proud of it!”

“I’m so happy to have been able to do this,” Padalecki tells PEOPLE.
