Lady Gaga to make own wine5th March, 2012 by Lucy Shaw
Singer Lady Gaga reportedly wants to make her own wine with boyfriend Taylor Kinney.
The pop icon was spotted in Sonoma County last week, and is allegedly interested in buying a property in the area with a view to making her own wine.
During the visit, Gaga told fellow guests she and Kinney wanted to grow their own grapes.
“Gaga is really into her food and wine. When she isn’t on tour she is cooking and drinking the most expensive bottles she can get her hands on.
“After touring in Europe she has taken a real interest in the production of her favourite reds,” a source told the Sun.
“She also sees a vineyard as a business investment and something she can work on with Taylor when her pop career comes to an end,” the source added.
The 25-year-old Italian American recently revealed she was a huge fan of red wine.
“My favourite way to catch up with friends is to have wine and food nights. We cook together and drink six or seven bottles of red wine,” she said.
During her trip to California, Gaga stopped into Sonoma’s Best deli and wine shop.
“When she came in I noticed the six-inch stiletto heals and knew that she couldn’t be from Sonoma,” said owner Gayle Jenkins.
Two days later, the songstress was spotted in the area again with Kinney, who joined Gaga at the bar of The Girl & the Fig where the pair sipped the restaurant’s signature Fig Kiss cocktail featuring FigCello di Sonoma liqueur, made locally from hand picked black mission figs.
