According to the Daily Mail, she has chosen wine as the first product to promote as it makes “infinite commercial sense.”

Reports have previously claimed that rosé is one of her favourite tipples, and she drunk it during her first date with Prince Harry at Soho House in London back in 2016.

In addition, it is claimed she is a fan of ‘frosé’, which is where rosé is frozen and blended with strawberries and icing sugar.


The news follows Markle launching the brand in March, when she created an Instagram account for the California-based brand. Trademarks for the brand include a number of lifestyle products, such as knives and tableware, as well as food items such as jams. In addition, it would appear that Markle has plans to launch a series of cookbooks as well.

Other trademarks show American Riviera will sell cosmetic products, fragrances, stationery, wallpaper and homeware products, yoga and gardening equipment.

It includes non-medicated skin care preparations, bath and shower gels and salts not for medical purposes, non-medicated hair preparations, bath soap, body lotions, cosmetics, body oil, scented oils.


She has already been promoting her jam products, and it is believed has sent her preserves to celebrity friends, including Kris Jenner and Mindy Kaling. According to reports, her jam is made from fruit grown in her Montecito domestic garden, where she lives with Harry and their children.

Fashion designer Tracy Robbins was one of the first to showcase the brand in real life with an image of a gift basket on her Instagram in April. She wrote that she “absolutely love this jam so not sure I’m sharing with anyone.”

The news follows Markle’s The Tig blog, named after the famous Italian winery and another of her favourite wines, Tiganello. She shut down the website when she became engaged to Prince Harry and took up life as a working member of the Royal Family.

Tignanello was the first Sangiovese to be aged in barriques, and is blended with untraditional varieties, as well as being one of the first red wines in the Chianti Classico region that didn’t use white grapes. It is produced with a selection of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
