A Definitive (Working) List of Celebrity Wine Projects

Have you ever wondered what your favorite celebrities like to do in their free time, and with their spending money? Owning a vineyard or winery is a long standing celebrity tradition (we’re talking back to leading philosophers in ancient Greece) and one that is still quite popular today. Since we had a hard time finding a complete, up-to-date list of celebrity wineries, we decided to put together our own that we will keep updated as new wine projects come and go.

I call this a ‘definitive’ list because I know that it’s more complete than current lists on Wikipedia and other major sources, but working because we never know who will surprise us with a new wine project. We will continue to update the list as new celebrity wine projects emerge. Dive in below by celebrity type and country, and please shoot us an email if you know of a winery we missed (support@tayloredwines.com).

A few interesting statistics from the list:

  • 67% of the celebrity vineyards and wineries are located in the United States, with California being the favored state
  • Italy is also popular among celebrities, representing 12% of this list
  • Professional athletes seem to be most fond of the wine business
