Celebrities as Sips
What wine would your fave celeb be?

Kim Donaldson

Liam Neeson is definitely a California cabernet sauvignon: a big, powerful, hit-you-over-the-head kind of wine, but with complexity, full flavors and a certain elegance.

Anthony Overstreet

Devin Parr
devinparrcrop_small Sofia Vergara would be a Zinfandel. Hot, rich and voluptuous…and occasionally a little bit cloying.

Alyssa Rapp
ajr-new-headshot_small If Robert Downey Jr. were a wine, he'd be a new world star like Harlan Cabernet¬: world-renowned, refined, and in a league of its own.

Nicki Spear
nickispear_small Jennifer Aniston would be a malbec, a classic varietal that can offer depth and character yet is more known to be fun, quirky, and easily enjoyable.

Bryce Wiatrak

From Napa to Chablis to blanc de blancs Champagne, or from Miranda Priestly to Julia Child to most recently a singing witch, both Meryl and chard demonstrate unparalleled versatility, complexity of character, and ability to age with grace.
