The Review

“This is definitely the stiletto of rosés. It has a pointed minerality with a sassy feel,” says Pierluc Dallaire, the beverage director at Bar Restaurant in Silver Lake, of the Invivo X, Sarah Jessica Parker Sud de France Rosé 2019. “It’s very light and crisp.”

The Review

“It has a bold personality and probably only Martha Stewart could pair some food with it,” says Dallaire of 19 Crimes Cali Red. “I’d go for gin and juice instead.”

The Celeb: Cameron Diaz

Self-described retired actress Cameron Diaz, 48, got jizzy with it in There’s Something About Mary and starred in rom-coms aplenty. She’s gone on to reinvent herself as a wellness guru.

Earlier this year, Diaz launched Avaline, a line of wines billed as “clean.” Labels tout that the wines are vegan and free of artificial colors, concentrates, and added sugars—all of which can be said about many halfway-decent wines.

The Review

If you’re looking for something different, Avaline’s French Rosé is delightfully distinct from the other Provençal-style celeb rosés, says Dallaire. “The aromatics are different from the others. It’s a little more herbaceous, with a nutty nose.”

Where to Find It

$19 at Sprouts Farmers Market, various locations at sprouts.com.


The Celeb: Post Malone

Musician and Olive Garden superfan Post Malone, 25, best known for being a white guy who raps and has face tattoos.

The Wine

The Review

“This is a rosé with a lot of life. It will definitely dance in your mouth. It’s almost sparkling,” says Dallaire of Maison No. 9. It might, he cautions, inspire you to take your G-Wagon for a joy ride in Joshua Tree, à la Postie’s “White Iverson” video.

The Celeb: Eric Wareheim

The Review

The 2019 Glou Glou—made from a blend of zinfandel, carignan, petite syrah, pinot noir, and cabernet—is an easy-drinking red that chills well. “If you’re a fan of natural wine, and lighter wine, you’ll love it,” says Dallaire. “It’s my favorite of the celeb wines.”
