Actress Chrissy Metz has already made a name for herself as a singer and actress; she is a regular on the hit show “This Is Us”. She can now add another role to her CV: winegrower.
Metz officially launched its own brand of wine, The Joyful Heart Wine Company. The company’s collection was created in collaboration with an award-winning winemaker Nicole Walsh and includes three wines: Red mixture, white mixture and red mixture with limited reserve. All three are available for presale online, with the Red and White Mix costing $ 16 each and the Limited Reserve Mix priced at $ 40.
Sourced from Californian vineyards, Joyful Heart Red Blend is a combination of Cabernet, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Petite Syrah and has a velvety, smooth finish. The Joyful Heart White Blend is shiny and textured, with a blend of white peach, tropical fruits and fresh flowers. Although it is made mostly of sauvignon blanc, it also contains a touch of chardonnay.
A full-bodied 2019 vintage, the Joyful Heart Limited Reserve Red Blend is a deep ruby color and has aromas of blueberry, black cherry, cedar and plum. The wine fermented in small batches and was aged for 22 months in French oak barrels.
The brand was created to celebrate joy, faith, love, community and generosity, according to the website. A portion of every bottle sold is donated to World Central Kitchen, a non-profit organization that provides food to those in need in times of crisis. The association has served more than 50 million meals to people affected by crises around the world.
“These wines hold a special place in my heart, and it’s amazing to see our collective vision become a reality. Born out of my desire to live from the bottom of my heart, create meaningful moments, give back to the community and share delicious wine with my loved ones, Joyful Heart Wine Co. has been a dream of mine for many years, ” Metz said in a statement. “For me, a happy heart is a reminder of the importance of breaking bread together, of sharing in community and of knowing that we are all deeply loved.”
Metz is one of a handful of celebrities who have created their own liquor brands. Others include Justin Timberlake, John Legend, Ryan Reynolds, and Matthew McConaughey.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson also has his own brand of tequila, which was recently featured in two cocktails at Applebee’s. Called Teremana, the spirit is sold pretty much everywhere tequila is sold, including at national retailers like Target.
