Kanye West to make Californian wine

Rapacious rapper Kanye West is to make wine at the vineyard on his sprawling California estate in Hidden Hills; a gated community in the San Fernando Valley.

According to US Weekly, West is keen to follow in Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s footsteps by producing a wine from his estate as they do with Provençal pink Château Miraval.

He and wife Kim Kardashian are currently renovating the 3.5 acre French château–style estate, which they bought in 2014 for a reported US$20m.

Keen to revive the vineyard on the property, West has consulted a viticulturalist to see what it will take to turn it into a flourishing vineyard again.

“Kanye loves wine, and he’s really excited about this. He even joked about having a ‘Yeezus’ wine,” a source told US Weekly.

West has been vocal in his love of wine over the years, name-checking Moscato in one of his tracks and rapping about “beasting off the Riesling” in the song Run This Town, featuring Jay-Z and Rihanna.

Sadly for Kanye fans, the rapper has no plans to sell the wine like Brangelina, and instead will enjoy the fruits of his labour with family and friends.

In addition to two vineyards, the Kardashian-West mansion boasts two swimming pools, two spas, three fountains and a 1,050-square-foot entertainment pavilion.
