Top 10 celebrity drinks launches of 2017

9. Lady Gaga

In February the rumour mill whirred into action with talk that eccentric songstress Lady Gaga was to release her own brand of wine called Grigio Girls, named after a bonus track on her album Joanne.

The song Grigio Girls is a tribute to one of Gaga’s best friends, Sonja, who has cancer.

By December, her actual plans came to light, with Gaga confirming that she was set to release wines not under the catchy but somewhat constraining name Grigio Girls, but under the ‘Joanne Trattoria’ brand, named after the Italian restaurant in New York owned by her father.

As reported by The Blast, representatives for Gaga filed documents to secure the rights for ‘Joanne Trattoria Vino Blanco’ and ‘Joanne Trattoria Vino Rosso’.

Run by her father, Joe Germanotta, Joanne Trattoria in New York’s Upper West Side is named after Gaga’s late aunt.

In addition to wine, Gaga plans to release wine coolers, punches and cocktails under the same brand name.
