The Hello singer revealed she has been sober for more than three months to focus on her ‘Weekends with Adele’ residency in Las Vegas.

Her latest stint in Sin City kicked off on 16 June 2023 and is scheduled to end on 15 June 2024, with weekly performances on both Friday and Saturday nights. Fans have been forking out as much as US$545 for an entry-level ticket.

Speaking on stage at The Colosseum Caesar Palace in Las Vegas ahead of her upcoming break from the gigs, Adele said she was looking forward to having a drink during her downtime.

Interacting with a member of the audience who appeared to be drinking a Whiskey Sour, the star said of her period of abstinence: “It’s boring. Oh my God, it’s boring… I miss it so much… Enjoy your whiskey sour, I’m very, very jealous.”

The Tottenham-born artist, whose album ’30’ includes a song called I Drink Wine, revealed that her drink of choice is usually a white wine spritzer made with sparkling water. However, she let slip to the audience at one of her recent shows that she has been hanging onto a special bottle of wine with which to celebrate once the curtains are drawn on her last Vegas gig.

According to Adele she has “an expensive bottle of Châteauneuf-du-Pape” stored away but explained that she will have to wait until the end of her scheduled shows to “treat myself”.

It is unknown how old the bottle is, though the 2016 vintage of Châteauneuf-du-Pape is generally thought to be outstanding, akin to the warmer years of 2010 and 1990 (when Adele was just two years old). Leading producer and negociant Ogier described 2016 as being “the perfect vintage for Grenache with lots of silky tannins and small concentrated berries.”

For those looking for an accessible bottle close to home, Tesco currently features a Châteauneuf-du-Pape in its Finest range, for £21, while ASDA’s Extra Special Châteauneuf-du-Pape is retailing at the time of publication for just £18.

In Marks & Spencer, fans of the Rhone appellation can pick up a bottle by winemaker Thomas Castet for £27.50 through Ocado.
