Top 10 rap star wines

E-40

West Coast rapper E-40’s three strong range of wines, The Earl Stevens Selection, has proven a sell-out success in the States selling more than 180,000 bottles this year alone. Named after the rapper’s birth name, the trio was added to Southern Wine & Spirits’ portfolio in January which has said it has struggled to keep up with demand for the brand since. It has become one of the company’s fastest growing brands, accounting for US$2 million in net sales.

Ranging from US$9.99 to $15.99, the trio is comprised of Function, a blend of Lodi Zinfandel and Cabernet, a Moscato and Mangoscato. The range was created by UC Davis graduate Steve Burch and made at DFV Wines in Manteca with grapes sourced from California’s Central Valley.
