Olivia Newton-John is the latest celebrity to dive into the wine business. The Grease star has announced the launch of her new wine brand called Pink and Blue for Two.She will release two wines under the label: a merlot and chardonnay, both from California’s Sonoma wine region.
Other celebrities who have launched their own wine labels include Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Drew Barrymore, Francis Ford Coppola, Madonna, and Sting. However, what sets this actress and singer apart from the pack is that 10 percent of the proceeds from all wine sales will go to Newton-John’s charity foundation, the Cancer and Wellness Centre in Australia. A further 10 percent will go to the PB42.org campaign for the early detection of prostate and breast cancer. Newton-John herself battled breast cancer in 1992, and has since then become a staunch advocate for a cure.
The wines have already received favorable reviews. According to The Daily Mail, the chardonnay has been described as having a “huge personality,” while the merlot has been lauded as “fruity but not bombastic.”
