Later this month, you can sing along to “Bed of Roses” while you sip the new rosé from rock legend Jon Bon Jovi’s wine line. Called “Diving into Hampton Water,” the French rosé is an homage to Bon Jovi’s home in East Hampton, New York.
“It’s a favorite in our household because you can drink it starting with lunch and into the evening,” he told The New York Times. “And we enjoy lots of it whenever we travel.”
Light and fresh, rosé is the perfect warm-weather drink, whether you’re in the Hamptons or not. At $25 a bottle, he co-created the wine with his son Jesse Bongiovi, 22, and collaborated with French winemaker Gérard Bertrand. Produced in southern France’s Languedoc-Roussillon region, the wine is a blend of cinsault, grenache and Mourvèdre grapes.
On a more musical note, This House Is Not For Sale, Bon Jovi’s two-month tour across the U.S. and Canada, kicks off in mid-March. He’ll also be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in April. Doesn’t look like this New Jersey native is slowing down anytime soon!
Bon Jovi isn’t the first musician to foray into wine making. Sting, Dave Matthews and Boz Scaggs are just a few fellow rockers who have wineries.
