Dan Aykroyd
> Label: Dan Aykroyd

Canadian-born actor and comedian Aykroyd entered the alcohol business in 2008 with his Crystal Head Vodka, made in Labrador and Newfoundland. More recently, he has partnered with the Lakeview Wine Co. in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, to label a variety of wines produced in the region, including sweet late-harvest ice wines made from cabernet franc and Vidal grapes.

Antonio Banderas
> Label: Anta Banderas

In 2009, Spanish heartthrob Banderas bought a 50% interest in a ten-year-old winery in Spain’s esteemed Ribera del Duero region that was then called Anta Bodegas and renamed it for himself. When he made the deal, he said that he wanted to be involved first-hand in all the production processes.

Mary J. Blige
> Label: Sun Goddess

Multi-Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Blige says that she fell in love with pinot grigio and was told that the best came from Italy’s Friuli region, so she went there and formed an alliance with local winemaker Marco Fantinel. Their specialty is pinot grigio ramato, an unusual copper-hued almost-rosé interpretation of the grape (which is itself pink-skinned).

Jon Bon Jovi
> Label: Hampton Water

Rocker Bon Jovi and his son, Jesse Bongiovi (plus a partner, Ali Thomas), collaborate on a wine project yielding a rosé made in France’s Languedoc region by Gérard Bertrand, a noted vintner there. The label takes its name from Bon Jovi’s quip that in the Hamptons – where he has a home – rosé is the local water.

Zac Brown
> Label: Z. Alexander Brown

The Georgia-born country-rock (and sometime electronic dance music) star christened Zachry Alexander Brown had a short run in the spirits business with his Z. Brown Distillery in 2017 and ’18, but has endured longer with his 1916-vintage wine operation, in collaboration with John Killebrew, winemaker at Delicato Family Wines in Napa. The wines include an “Uncaged” line (sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, pinot noir, and a proprietary red) plus a Napa Valley cabernet.
