You’re not a true “Real Housewife” until you’ve got your own brand of alcoholic beverage. Bethenney Frankel (“RHONY” alum) made her mark with Skinny Girl Margarita, with Teresa Giudice (“RHONJ”) following suit with her Fabellini sparkling wine. Then Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney (“RHOC”) teamed, to much lesser success, on Wines by Wives. Now, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Vanderpump is joining the fray with her own wine label, LVP Sangria.
Vanderpump tells THR that the label, which includes two varietals (regular red and her personal favorite, pink sangria), will be available in select duty-free and U.S. retail outlets by January 2014.
“My daughter Pandora and her husband, Jason Sabo, said, ‘Come on, let’s do this, it’s incredible. Let’s take three colors to market!'” she tells the publication. (Lest you think her count is off from the details above, a white sangria is said to hit sometime next year.)
Vanderpump’s wine comes from a Spanish vineyard she said she research until she knew “they could actually deliver everything we wanted. The pink sangria has a couple of grape varietals: a Bobal and a Grenache. It’s my favorite, and I don’t think anybody else is doing it. The taste is off-the-hook, and you can add fruit to it. Of course, I love the color.”
Will you purchase a bottle of LVP Sangria when it’s available?
