Sting and his wife Trudie Styler have their own vineyard just 45 minutes south of Florence where they produce organic and biodynamic wines. The 900-acre estate, called Il Palagio, includes 12 acres of vegetable gardens, around 80 bee colonies, olive groves, and numerous lakes and forests.
Their wines are frequently named after Sting's songs. The original wine was called "Sister Moon," with another called "When We Dance."
Their vineyard is situated at Château Miraval, a 1,200-acre domain in the village of Correns, France. Built in 1841, the French Country manor has 35 rooms and 926 acres of fountains, gardens, and woodlands. It even has a moat. Their rosé is world renowned placing it in the top 100 best wines.
The hard rock band supposedly also has a taste for fine wine. AC/DC works together with Warburn Estate, one of the biggest and best-known vineyards in Australia, to make their brand of wine. "Back in Black Shiraz," "Thunderstruck Chardonnay," "You Shook Me All Night Long Moscato," and "Highway to Hell Cabernet Sauvignon" are just some of the many wines they make. Yes, really.
David and Victoria Beckham became wine aficionados while living in Spain when David played for Real Madrid. When they moved to Los Angeles, David supposedly bought Victoria her own Napa Valley vineyard for her 34th birthday.
The couple have no plans to produce Beckham wine for the market and are pursuing wine making as a private venture. The Beckham’s have employed a team of specialists to run the vineyard and make vintage wines for family and friends.
Sam Neill has been making wine since 1993 on his Two Paddocks winery in New Zealand's South Island. The Jurassic Park star is also a Pinot Noir fanatic, and has earned many honours for his Two Paddock Pinot Noir wines. "I wanted to produce a good Pinot Noir that would, at the very least, be enjoyed by my family and friends," Neil says "Since that original release in 1999, with each successive year we have produced a Pinot Noir (sometimes 3 or 4 Pinot Noirs) that have done us proud and are, to be frank, too good to be wasted on our friends." Sam’s goal is to produce the world’s best Pinot Noir.
Inspired by her family, Drew Barrymore has fashioned a Pinot Grigio as a tribute to them. Barrymore does not have her own vineyard, she has teamed up with the Monterey, a Californian vineyard to create a “bright, crisp white wine with flavours of lemon drop, Asian pear, and honeydew melon star."
