Gabrielle Union, Winemaker, Presents 'Vanilla Puddin' Chardonnay


Gabrielle Union — known for movies like Bring It On, Love & Basketball and Think Like a Man, as well as the TV series Being Mary Jane — has branched out into pushing wines. Her first? Vanilla Puddin Chardonnay. That’s Puddin, no G.

Union posted about the libation on Instagram:

So excited about my new wine @vanillapuddinwine … It’s a fun Chardonnay with hints of vanilla, super yummy and great for all occasions.

But definitely for women, right? Look how cozy she is, on the couch, with a luxe Olivia Pope-style creamy sweater. Vanilla pudding is basically a dessert; ladies love dessert. Yum, yum. Over at the website, there’s a more detailed description:

“This full bodied Chardonnay has aromas of carmelized apple, pineapple and butterscotch. Nuances of vanilla coming from the oak contact are abundant. On the palate, the wine is grippy and weighty. The vanilla, coming from a hefty dose of oak, is front and center and intermingles with the carmelized apple and butterscotch.” Master Sommelier Virginia Philip

Suggested pairing: Cookies and television. I’m in! Priced at around $17 a bottle, the potent potable hits stores March 17. Think Union and fiancé Dwyane Wade will pour it up at their wedding?
