Wine is not just for historic winemakers anymore, it’s a huge business with even bigger names involved! That’s right…celebrities are all in on wine! From rock stars to actors, actresses and even royalty, celebrities are partnering with established wineries or winemakers. Some celebrities even own their own wine brands, produced by another winery or estate. Others may own their own vineyards. Did you know Publix carries a variety of celebrity wines?
