when it comes to Hollywood, the art of winemaking is a new business venture that every major celebrity seems to want a stake in. As for the crowded crop of celeb-branded wines that have made their way to shelves in recent years, a select handful makes the cut for being truly worth the hype.
Jay-Z's Armand de Brignac Few things are more luxe than pouring yourself a glass of Jay-Z's Armand de Brignac brut. With hints of peach, apricot, orange blossom, and brioche, it's a perfectly light yet slightly toasty sip perfect for kicking off any celebration. The brut's lavish gold-mirrored bottle also makes the champagne an ideal gift.
Mary J. Blige's Sun Goddess Wines Mary J. Blige's foray into the wine world is already a hit. Of her two debut releases from her new line, Sun Goddess Wines, the singer's Pinot Grigio is the standout selection. Stemming from the Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Ramato, province of Italy, it's a fresh and fervent complex blend of peach, melon, and berries with a slight acidity reminiscent of a lighter-bodied Prosecco. Rather than the wine's signature cream-colored hue, Sun Goddess Wines' iteration has a gorgeous pale-pink, sunset-like shade, thanks to skin contact from the Pinot Grigio grape. Post Malone's Maison No. 9 Though Post Malone's entry in the wine world is quite the unexpected move, the musician's Maison No. 9 rosé is surprisingly pleasant. Bottled in a sleek, sexy, and compact vessel, Maison No. 9 is light, crisp, and refreshing everything we want a classic rosé to be.
Sarah Jessica Parker and Invivo Wines' Rosé When it comes to wine, Sarah Jessica Parker wants to keep it simple.

Cameron Diaz's Avaline Cameron Diaz's wine collaboration with friend and entrepreneur Katherine Power breaks down the complex nuance around wine, and rather just lets the drink speak for itself. Their first two wines include a crisp, floral Spanish white and a zesty, fresh French rosé. Dwyane Wade's Wade Cellars Dwyane Wayde isn't just one of the NBA's legendary basketball players, he's also a self-proclaimed vino afficionado. The athlete's brand, D Wade Cellars, was born out of the player's love of Napa Valley–stemmed wines. His Chenin Blanc is a standout in his finely curated selection. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's Miraval In true Brangelina fashion, the acclaimed actors opted not to include their highly recognizable namesakes as part of their joint wine venture. Though Pitt and Jolie's foray into the wine world began while the pair were still married, the vineyard's success has only grown in recent years, even post-split. The brand's 2019 vintage stems from Provence and is an airy and balanced, fresh but complex rosé, sold in a chic and glamorous bottle. LVE by John Legend Cotes de Provence Rosé John Legend always keeps it classy, and his take on rosé is no exception. With notes of fresh-picked strawberry and white nectarine on the palate, and a rich mouthfeel, Legend's wine is perfect for topping off a late summer night. 9Francis Ford Coppola's Sofia Francis Ford Coppola Sofia Blanc de Blancs No one does wine quite like the Coppolas. While the Francis Ford Coppola–founded brand has developed endless varieties of vino throughout the years, the company's Sofia Coppola inspired sub-brand has achieved its own level of popularity for lighter offerings such as Riesling blends, rosés, and sparkling editions.
