Mary J. Blige Launches Her Own “Sun Goddess” Wine Brand
Mary J. Blige continues to expand her brand from music and film to now she's got her own brand of wine for you to enjoy.
According to Black Enterprise, the Grammy winner and Oscar nominee launched "Sun Goddess Wine" an exclusive collection of limited-edition wines in collaboration with the Fantinel Winery featuring a Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio based on two of Blige’s favorite summer drinks. Her wines are on sale now for $19.99 at wine.com.
The singer got the name from her sister who calls her “Sun Goddess” as a nickname as Blige openly loves to sunbathe whenever she gets the chance. Blige told Essence Magazine that the idea came about while drinking some wine with fellow R&B superstar Maxwell who introduced her to the Fantinel Winery.
“One of [Maxwell’s] friends happened to be Marco Fantinel, from the Fantinel Winery. I was drinking white wine with them all night long, [the Fantinels] asked, ‘do you want to do a wine?’ I didn’t even hesitate.” - via Essence
