Legendary American rapper Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr alias Snoop Dogg has officially launched his line of wines.
According to CNN, Snoop officially placed his famous face on the label in April, 2020
Snoop entered a multiyear partnership with Australian wine brand, 19 Crimes for the creation of Snoop Cali Red, the label’s first entry into the California market.
TUKO.co.ke understands the rapper traveled to Northern Carlifornia prior to the wine label’s launch where he had the chance to play an active role in conceiving the final blend.
Sources privy to the partnership disclosed that Snoop’s wine is primarily a combination of Petite Syrah and Zinfandel, with a drop of Merlot.
Unlike most wines by celebrities that fetch high prices in the market, Snoop Cali Red goes for only KSh 1,200.
Snoop, in one of his interviews, revealed he came up with the idea because it is not enough to just sip wine, but be part of it by having his name on the bottle.
The rapper is said to have developed a more subdued drinking habit owing to the fact that he is nearing his 50th birthday.
