Whilst most celebs make do with a perfume or fitness DVD, quirky Drew Barrymore has decided to put her name to something else entirely: her very own wine!
The actress has been working on 'Barrymore Pinot Grigio', a white wine which is set to go on sale in New York next month. For $20 a bottle, wine-lovers can enjoy the tipple which is a blend of grapes grown in the Triveneto region of north-east Italy, infused with 'hints of fresh apricot and lively citrus flavors'.
Drew is believed to be pregnant with her first child so it looks like she won't be enjoying the fruits of her labour for a few months. But Niccolo Salvadori, a partner in SGC Group, the official licensee for Barrymore Wines, has revealed the star has actually been working on the drink for two years, so she's had plenty of time to test her tipple. Speaking to the 'New York Post', Salvadori said:
"She herself is a pinot grigio drinker, and she created a wine reflecting her style"
"Drew made numerous trips to Italy, spent time with the facility and was involved with the wine at every level."
The actress has already gained praise for her drink, last month the 2011 vintage was awarded a gold medal in the prestigious French Le Challenge International du Vin.
Speaking about the product to 'Wine Spectator' magazine last month, Drew said:
"I love wine, and it’s always fun when you can do something in your work life that you love in your personal life."
We can't wait to try a bottle!
