Worldwide Wines Launches Sun Goddess Wines

By August 26, 2020Connecticut, Top News

The Sun Goddess collection produced by Mary J. Blige and Fantinel Winery includes a Pinot Grigio Ramato and a Sauvignon Blanc.

Worldwide Wines announced the launch and distribution of Sun Goddess Wines throughout Connecticut starting September 1. Created by music icon Mary J. Blige in partnership with Fantinel Winery in Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy, Sun Goddess is an exclusive collection of two limited-edition wines, a Pinot Grigio Ramato and a Sauvignon Blanc. “A dear friend introduced me to Marco Fantinel, referring to him as the producer of the best pinot grigio in the world,” said Blige. “After walking through the vineyards and tasting with the Fantinel family, I felt extremely connected to the place and, more importantly, the people. In that moment, I felt the same magical energy I have long tried to capture from the sun and knew this was an incredible opportunity to partner with someone who shared that passion.” Fantinel Winery CEO Marco Fantinel said, “From day one, it was clear she shares our philosophy for producing wines of the highest quality.” The name Sun Goddess is a nod to Blige’s childhood memories with her mother and a love for “the warmth and energy of the sun.”
