Iconic Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter, actress, producer and philanthropist, Mary J. Blige has just launched her own line of Itialian wine “Sun Goddess Wines”.
According to Mary J. Blige, “The name SUN GODDESS evokes powerful childhood memories that I carry with me today. I’ve always loved the sun, and as a child I always tried to capture the sun’s warmth and energy. It was magical to me, and it’s with that spirit, that my mom began calling me “Sun Goddess”.”
The newly released wines have been produced at the Fantinel Winery, a winery born from the passion of Mario Fantinel, a well-known hotelier and restaurateur in Friuli Venezia Giulia (a region in the north-east of Italy) His love for wine was inherited by his children who expanded the families’ vineyard properties into the best areas of the Friuli region. What began as a small agricultural endeavor, is today a third-generation wine company represented by grandsons Marco and Stefano. Fantinel has become an internationally prestigious winery and an ambassador for the craft of Friulian winemaking in the world.
The lineup consists of a Pinot Grigio Ramato & a Sauvignon Blanc both with a suggested retail price of $19.99
