Celebrity Vineyards and Distilleries

What do you do when you have more cash than you can stuff under your mattress? You do one of three things:

  1. If you’re famous, you design your own liquor or partner with an existing distiller or vintner;
  2. You invest in the hospitality sector, picking up – or opening up – a restaurant, hotel/resort or bar;
  3. You buy an existing vineyard to add caché to your brand, carry on tradition, and/or have fun with your friends.

Aside from scions of business, vineyard and distillery owners typically fall into four distinct categories: The Entertainers, The Sporting, The Fashionistas and The Foodies. Here is a selection of celebrity vineyards and distilleries:
