Celebrity Wineries & Wines

From the 1980s, it became increasingly fashionable that celebrities, especially from the show industry made their own winery. It is in the nature of things that the vast majority with the winemaking have nothing to do and leave this to professionals. One of the very first was in 1975, the US director Francis Ford Coppola (born 1939), who used his money from the first two godfather films. One of the most touching is the French actor Gerard Depardieu (* 1948), who operates with his wineries in three continents around the world. The only one who actually learned the trade 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:
