Lady Gaga’s latest wine range has been suspended over trademark issues

Lady Gaga’s latest range of wines have been suspended by US trade officials over patent issues.

Representatives for Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Joanne Germanotta, were preparing to release ‘Joanne Trattoria Vino Blanco’ and ‘Joanne Trattoria Vino Rosso’ last year, filing documents to secure the rights in December.

But the US Patent and Trademark Office has suspended the artist’s application, claiming the rights to use ‘Trattoria’ are already owned by another US company, celebrity news site Blast reports.

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

The wines were to be inspired by her father’s Italian restaurant Joanne Trattoria in New York’s Upper West Side, named after Gaga’s late aunt.

In February we reported that Gaga was to release her own brand of wine called Grigio Girls, named after a bonus track on her album Joanne dedicated to her friend Sonja, who lost her battle with cancer in May.

The current copyright owner submitted an application to use the word ‘Trattoria’ back in 2015.
