Top 10 celebrity rosé brands

Hampton Water Languedoc
Rosé (£19.50)

Finding time between his busy touring schedule, in early 2018 American rocker Jon Bon Jovi hooked up with Languedoc legend Gérard Bertrand on a high-end pink made with his son Jesse Bongiovi.

Inspired by Jon and Jesse’s memories of sipping rosé poolside during holidays in the Hamptons, the rosé was originally called Diving into Hampton Water and has since been shortened to the snappier ‘Hampton Water’. Jon allegedly wanted to call it ‘Pink Juice’ but the idea was vetoed by Jesse and Gérard.

The wine is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Mourvèdre. Bertrand describes the pale pink as “fresh and lively with distinctive minerality”. The inaugural 2017 vintage appeared in Wine Spectator’s coveted Top 100 ranking in 2018.

Jon and Jesse were introduced to Bertrand by a mutual friend and hit it off immediately. “Creating this wine with Gérard was just as creative as collaborating with another songwriter. Gérard uses his talents and wine knowledge like a gifted musician,” Bon Jovi said.

“I want to create a link between the emotions that spark off a great song and good wine. They elevate each other,” Bertrand added.
