I have not had a lot of great celebrity wine. Some are good but most are overpriced - as they are selling their name more so then a quality product...I have had some good ones though.
Most celebrity wine labels are just that...labels. The wine is already made, most do not even help with the blend or wine at all, and they just make up a label and pay some money and WAH LAH - Drew Barrymore has a pinot grigio thats light, crisp and refreshing - just like her.
Status. It would be neat having your own wine....I would not say no - I am also not a celebrity with a boatload of money. Maybe someday. Until then I will drink everyone elses....
Some that I have tasted -
Dave Mathews band wine - the only one that is good to me is the Crush but I think its overpriced.
Train (the band) new cabernet - I thought it was unbalanced, almost no finish except for acid and way too jammy for a cab...
Greg Norman - I always liked his Australian cab/merlot and shiraz - I havent had it in years BUT his California stuff has not been even close in quality.
Arnold Palmer - Made at Luna winery - The cab used to be from Napa - then turned to just California - I really enjoyed the Napa label - the California cab is good - just the price isnt where it should be
Jerry Garcia wines - I think they were made at Clos du Bois in Sonoma - they were actually ok for the price. I liked them as everyday drinkers - they are disctd now. Too Bad
Andretti - next....Not writing about it - sorry
Adobe road - sorry race fans -
BR Cohn - wines are pretty good for the price - I would drink and be happy
Coppola wines - I will say - best celebrity wines made - personally I think so anyway...He has many levels of wines and I really do enjoy a lot of them.
I was in Arizona and went to Tool singer Maynards 2 wineries - really quality stuff for Arizona wines - I liked them as well - I do not think they are sold in WI.
I had Joe Montanas wine - Delicious - only can buy in CA
Pininfarinas wine - Great Napa Valley blend that is now discontinued but a keeper
Fess Parker - I like his wines as well - A great Syrah, Pinot noir and especially love the Viognier. Value brands that get rated well.
Charles Woodson - His wine would be great if it was half the price or more...its quality juice but insanely overpriced. I tried his petite sirah at an event and it was VERY GOOD. I dont think he sells that though....only the blend
Lastly Robert Parkers wines - delicious and his Italian venture too - amazing
