Top 10 rap star wines

Justin Timberlake

Justin-Timberlake-picturesAdmittedly from the softer side of the hip hop community, Justin Timberlake is known to be more than capable of the odd rap.

The Sexy back singer commissioned a special wedding cuvée called Blue Ocean Floor – a red blend from Sonoma County – to be served at his wedding to actress Jessica Biel in southern Italy. It was made from Alexander Valley Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2009 vintage. 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.

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. 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.
