With the Grammy’s coming up, I thought it would be fun to see what singers are in the wine biz. I found a few with various stages of involvement from having their own wine label to owning a winery to becoming a winemaker and creating an entire lifestyle experience around wine. These celebrity singers know how to make big bold moves and with wine it’s no different.

John Legend

This guy seems to make all the right moves. He is living the life. In 2015 he partnered with Raymond Vineyards in Napa Valley, California to create his own wine label: LVE Legend Vineyard Exclusive.

He explains that his soulful music and wine are the perfect match. He has a range of wine offered under his label from Rose, Chardonnay, and Sparkling to Cabernet Sauvignon and a Red blend. The Chardonnay and Cabernet are even rated in the 90s.

After a representative for Cristal stuck his foot in his mouth about the unseemly, hip-hop clientele it was attracting, Jay Z boycotted the brand and bought a stake in Armand de Brignac – Ace of Spades Champagne.

This flashy bubbly is produced in Champagne, France by a father and son team whose family has been producing Champagne since 1763. The brand offers a range of five different bubblies including a Rose and Demi Sec.
