Mary J. Blige Shines With Sun Goddess Wine Launch
Netflix recently debuted an original film, Uncorked, which highlighted a young Black man’s desire to become a master sommelier and produce his own wine. This was just the most recent result of what seems to be a growing trend of Black interest in wine. With quarantine forcing people to spend more time indoors, it seems reasonable to conjecture that the number of wine connoisseurs will continue growing.
Mary J Blige is looking to capitalize on this. MJB is giving us the wine 411 with the launch of her wine line— Sun Goddess Wine. She joins the growing list of Black celebrity wine makers including Dwyane Wade, Charles Woodson, and Ayesha Curry. The partnership with Fantinel wineries features a limited-edition Rosé and Sauvignon Blanc.
“After walking through the vineyards and tasting with the Fantinel family, I felt extremely connected to the place, and more importantly, the people,” Blige said in a press release.
Both wines are available for pre-order on wine.com at a price of $19.99 per bottle and or you can find Sun Goddess in New York, New Jersey and Europe. Both wines will soon be available nationwide in the U.S.
