Our Domaine Curry FEMME 31 Cabernet Sauvignon is beautifully balanced and designed to drink now or age gracefully to enjoy in 5+ years."
JON BON JOVI
After the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star sang about pinot noir and caviar on the show, he got the idea for releasing his own line of wines. Even though he's not a professional sommelier, he loves wine so much he marinates his ribs in pinot noir. PBTB wine is barrel aged for eight months in a Santa Barbera wine country vineyard. In 2016, Burgess introduced a pride collection and a rosé.
The actor created GoGi wines after falling in love with wine on many bicycle trips with Goldie Hawn through Italy, France and California, he writes in a letter on his website.

“I like a good cabernet from a Napa Valley vine” the country star sings in his song “There’s A Whole Lot More To Me”—and indeed he does. The country star crafted his own limited-edition Cabernet Sauvignon, Old Tattoo, with Lot18.com. “I enjoy a glass of wine with a great meal or after a show and over the last few years I’ve become fascinated by the wine making process,” he explains in a press release. “As I learned more about wine cultivation, blending and aging I wanted to establish my own wine that reflects my favorite flavors and tastes.” Expect hints of coffee, cocoa, currant, dark cherry, graphite and plum while sipping.
As a follow-up to their first wine creation, Save Me San Francisco, the lead singer of Train and acclaimed winemaker, James Foster, are giving a nod to another one of the band's famous songs with a new portfolio of wines titled Drops of Jupiter. The collection includes a Cabernet Sauvignon, a Pinot Noir and a Sauvignon Blanc, each retailing for $20.
The TV host and restaurant owner is going back to her roots with her new prosecco, Giuliana Prosecco, made in collaboration with Terlato Wines in her native Italy.

The country music star teamed up with the Napa Valley-based winery ONEHOPE Wine on the Sara Evans Signature Series 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon to benefit a good cause. Each of the $60 bottles—made with a blend of dark berries, wild violets and chocolate nuance—helps fund music education programs through the CMA Foundation.
The Supernatural star recently released single vintage wine Venatore, 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 about the new line.
The musician – who says he has always been fascinated by wine because of its "inherent connection to the land" – unveiled his new wine line, Z. Alexander Brown.

A collaboration with Napa Valley winery Raymond Vineyards, LVE's first two vintages include a 2013 cabernet sauvignon ($85) and a 2014 chardonnay ($45) – which are described as a "series of rich, soulful and complex notes inspired by true love."
NBA star Dwyane Wade has conquered the courts over the years – but now it's time for a refreshing new venture. The star took to his Instagram to announce his new line of red wines, aptly titled Wade, while on tour in China in July 2015. "15 hour flight to China. Don't mind if I do," reads the photo caption.
BRAD PITT & ANGELINA JOLIE
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie aren't just successful Hollywood entertainers: They're winemakers whose debut rosé was named one of the top 100 wines by Wine Spectator. Pitt spoke to the magazine about his newfound love for the world of winemaking saying, "I'm a farmer now … It’s been a schooling for me. In the off months, I enjoy cleaning the forest and walking the land."
The rock legend and his wife, Trudie Styler, produce Tuscan wines that are sold in the U.S. through Maritime Trading Collective, a boutique wine importer. Their latest red is fittingly named "Message in a Bottle" and has an aroma of cherries, blackberries and spices. (Love that it's affordable, too!)
FERGIE AND OPRAH
Though she's best known as the Black Eyed Peas's energetic front woman, Fergie founded the wine label Ferguson Crest with her father, Pat Ferguson, in 2006. It looks like Oprah's gotta feeling about this red — the winery's red portfolio includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and the cheekily named "Fergalicious," which is a blend of several grapes.
