Last month Mary J. Blige shared that she had a surprise for her fans hinting that what she had in store had nothing to do with music.
The queen of r&B is stepping into the wine business yall and we love to see it! Her line is called Sun Goddess and she shared that she has been working on the project for the last 3 years.
It’s finally here! @sungoddesswines I’ve been creating this for 3 years now and I hope this brings you some joy during these trying times.

According to People Magazine, the limited-edition collection is in collaboration with the Fantinel Winery and features two new wines: an Italian Pinot Grigio Ramato (rosé) and Sauvignon Blanc.
A long time fan of the vineyard’s Pinto Grigio, Blige knew this collaboration was a perfect fit for her. “After walking through the vineyards and tasting with the Fantinel family, I felt extremely connected to the place, and more importantly, the people,” Blige said in a press release.
She said: “In that moment, I felt the same magical energy I have long tried to capture from the sun and knew this was an incredible opportunity to partner with someone who shared that passion, and together we could try to create something that evoked that feeling.”
Both wines bring unique flavors to the table. The pink-hued rosé is full-bodied with notes of peach, melon, and blackberry with a crisp finish, while the Sauvignon Blanc is smooth and strongly aromatic.
The Sun Goddess Sauvignon Blanc is comprised purely of hand-picked Sauvignon Blanc grapes harvested from the foothills of the Dolomite mountains. Intensely aromatic with a velvety smoothness, it offers a powerfully unique experience of quest for excellence and deep passion for the land.
When it came to naming her first collection of wines, Blige made it a family affair (natch!). She chose the name Sun Goddess while reminiscing about childhood memories of her mother and her love of the warm energy that radiates from the sun.
