Like all people, celebrities have hobbies that they like to do outside of work too, a little something to take the edge off some. Drew Barrymore has revealed that she loves to make wine in her spare time, so much so that she has even started her own wine range. Drew has now been talking about Barrymore Wines.
Barrymore told Metro US, "I have always been interested in the art of winemaking and how a bottle of wine can bring family and friends together for a memorable evening or a casual conversation. To have the opportunity to create my own collection and be part of the process was what led me to launching Barrymore Wines. I traveled to Italy and spent time in the Triveneto area where the grapes are grown."
She added, "I knew I wanted my first offering to be a Pinot Grigio so my goal was to create a wine that was refreshing and subtle yet complex. We had a lot of tasting until we found the one that had all of these qualities in a glass. One of my favorite parts of the process was creating the label. It was a group effort led by talented artist Shepard Fairey, he was able to use my grandfather’s crest to create a traditional yet modern look."
As for her acting career, Drew Barrymore is set to re-team with her The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates co-star Adam Sandler for the movie Blended, which will see them once again starring in a romantic comedy together. Blended is currently still being scripted and is expected to be released next year.
