Celebrity wineries & wines

From the 1980s, it became increasingly fashionable for celebrities, especially those from the show industry, to buy their own winery. It is in the nature of things that most of the people with the winemaking have nothing to do and leave this to professionals. One of the very first was the US director Francis Ford Coppola (* 1939) in 1975, who used his money from the first two godfather films. One of the most active is the French actor Gerard Depardieu (* 1948), who is active worldwide with his wineries in three continents. The only one who actually learned the craft and took over the business from his father is the Italian Albano Carrisi, who became known as a show star with his first wife Romina Power:
