Calling all Gladiators! ‘Scandal’ star Kerry Washington shows off her inner Olivia Pope to celebrate National Drink Wine Day by posting a series of clips on her social media of her iconic character enjoying a nice glass (or several glasses) of red wine. Her caption read, “Bottoms up ? #NationalDrinkWineDay”. One of her fans posted a comment on her Instagram that said, “I own the Olivia Pope wine glass all from my obsession of seeing it used on the show ? maybe also because I want to be OP or part of OPA ??”.
Kerry also posted a fun picture with fellow co-star of ‘Scandal’ Bellamy Young, holding up glasses of wine, and another picture kissing another ‘Scandal’ co-star, Tony Goldwyn. The comment from that picture said, “#Galentines? or #Valentines ??”
Snoop Dogg partnered with 19 Crimes Wine that released California wines called Snoop Cali Red and Snoop Cali Rose. The rapper’s face is featured on the bottles and as an added feature, his face is also printed on the corks. Other music legends have partnered with winemakers to produce signature wines. John Legend, Dave Matthews, and Carlos Santana are among a few famous celebrities that are featured in California’s Napa Valley.
John Legend’s collaboration with Raymond Vineyards, LVE Wines has become a staple in the singer’s home. He told Wine Spectator that he and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, “truly love entertaining, love cooking for each other, love cooking for our friends, and so much of it revolves around recipes that she’s made or is developing for her book, and then around us drinking our LVE wine.” John Legend has said he enjoys his LVE wine pairing it with pancakes, fried chicken, and Chrissy’s lasagna.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have a super-successful label, Miraval, that has gained its popularity over the last several years, and has even been a hiccup in their current divorce settlement. As we previously reported, The winery,Miraval was purchased by the former couple in 2011 for a reported $60 million. Our sources say the plan was to pass down the 500-acre Château down to their children to own and operate. A second rose was created called Muse or Muse de Miraval.
The list goes on and on for celebrities who have made their mark on the wine industry. Drew Barrymore, Kate Hudson, Ayesha Curry, and Nicki Minaj, to name a few!
