Pour it up, pour it up. It looks like Rihanna is coming out with her own celebrity wine. Early Monday morning, folks on Twitter unearthed a trademark application for Fenty Estates Wine and Spirits Company with the stated goods and services listed as “distilled spirits; wine.”
Fenty is Rihanna’s last name. So if this trademark is any indication of what’s to come, Rihanna is going to have her very own winery and distillery. Maybe.
Although the trademark application was filed, we are still waiting for an official announcement from Rihanna. According to Fader, the trademark “was filed by JGC Global LLC and not Rihanna’s Roraj Trade LLC.” Furthermore, an application for a trademark doesn’t always ensure that a product will be released. Rihanna’s new line of beauty products, named Fenty Beauty, has generated a fair amount of interest already, though and there’s only one true Fenty out there.
After music, television, and film, celebrities often begin searching for their passion project — and that passion often happens to be alcohol. Actors and musicians who are really into wine have their own brands, such as Drew Barrymore’s Pinot Grigio or Nicki Minaj’s Myx Moscato. As VinePair has reported, celebrity wine isn’t necessarily good wine, but the prospect of your favorite actor or musician starting their own winery is exciting.
If everything goes according to plan, the next time Rihanna walks out of a restaurant with a wine glass, her own wine could be inside.
