Jon Bon Jovi has something in common with the likes of Sting, Graham Norton, Francis Ford Coppola and other celebrities that have launched wines of their own.
The lead singer of Bon Jovi has decided to think pink, and he has teamed up with Languedoc winemaking legend Gerard Bertrand to create a premium rosé blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Mourvedre, a classic combination from the Southern French region.
Named Diving Into Hampton Water, the wine was inspired by Jon Bon Jovi’s son, Jesse Bongiovi, who also contributed in the creation of the brand, evoking the lifestyle of the Hamptons, which father and son are fond of.
Jon Bon Jovi said in the press release: “Creating this wine with Gérard was just as creative as collaborating with another songwriter, Gérard uses his talents and wine knowledge just like a gifted musician.”
The family met Bertrand through a mutual friend. Bon Jovi highlighted their “shared a love of family, food, friends, great wine and great music” and quickly hit it off with the winemaker, who is a known melomaniac and the host of a popular annual jazz festival at his Château l’Hospitalet.
Diving Into Hampton Water will be released this summer in the United States and it has an estimated price of $25. This is not the first time the rockstar releases a wine, and in fact, his range of collective wines simply named the Bon Jovi Wine Collection is currently sold out.
