Actress, producer and director Drew Barrymore has taken a small step outside of Hollywood and entered the wine business, and she is now offering her first wine: a Pinot Grigio from Italy.

Along with numerous other celebrities who are trying their hand at wine production, including Antonio Banderas, Sam Neill, Francis Ford Coppol and Wayne Gretzsky, Barrymore says, “Whine is all about the journey, the discovery of new places and new varieties.”

The Barrymore Pinot Grigio is made from grapes that were grown in the Triveneto area of northern Italy. This region is very well known for producing crisp and fruity white wines. Barrymore said she wanted to create a wine that “reflects her style and personality: fresh, dynamic and fun.” The Pinot Grigio has a pale straw color and features hints of fresh apricot and lively citrus flavors.

The crest on Barrymore’s bottle of Pinot Grigio features her family crest, which was designed by popular street artist Shepard Fairey and Wilson Daniels Ltd. is the exclusive importer for Barrymore Wines.

“I’m excited about sharing this Pinot Grigio with my friends and family and other wine lovers.”

A bottle of Barrymore’s wine costs $19.99 and it will launch first in California before expanding its distribution later in the year.
