Barrymore Pinot Grigio is an IGT Delle Venezie, made from grapes grown the Triveneto area, comprised of three of Italy’s most northern regions: Friuli Venezia Giulia, Trentino Alto Adige and Veneto—regions renowned for producing crisp and fruity white wines. The Barrymore label showcases her family crest and was designed by Shepard Fairey, the popular street artist/designer behind the Obama Hope poster of 2008.
Drew Barrymore joins an esteemed collection of celebrities in the wine business around the world that includes Francis Ford Coppola, Antonio Banderas, Wayne Gretzsky and Sam Neill. “Wine is all about the journey, the discovery of new places and new varieties,” says Drew. “I’m excited about sharing this Pinot Grigio with my friends and family and other wine lovers.”
The wine will launch in California, with broader distribution planned for spring 2012 and has a suggested retail price of $19.99. Visit WilsonDaniels.com to learn more.
