According to the Wine Spectator, the Timberlake-Biel wedding cuvée – Blue Ocean Floor – was made from Alexander Valley Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2009 vintage.

In addition to being poured at the reception, which reportedly cost around $6.5m, the wine was also given as a gift to guests, who included Saturday Night Live’s Jimmy Fallon and hip-hop producer Timbaland, who recently released a sparkling liqueur called LeSutra

Jesse Katz, winemaker at Lancaster Estate in Alexander Valley, and a friend of both Justin and Jessica, made two barrels of the wine to mark the occasion.

The wine-savvy couple have been following 28-year-old Katz’s career with interest. Emerging as a winemaker to watch, prior to Lancaster Estate he made wine at California cult estate Screaming Eagle.

Both Timberlake and Biel were part of the blending process and provided the artwork for the label, produced by Ellen Riendeau of Soda Rock Studios.

A keen drinks enthusiast, Timberlake also has own ultra-premium Tequila brand, 901, made from triple distilled 100% blue agave and named after the area code of the singer’s hometown of Memphis.
