Mary J. Blige launches sun goddess wine range
According to the drinks business
Produced in Friuli Venezia Giulia, Blige’s Sun Goddess range is formed of a Friuli DOC Pinot Grigio Ramato and a Friuli DOC Sauvignon Blanc.
A longtime lover of Pinot Grigio, it was Blige’s idea to produce a rosé from the grape by leaving it in contact with its skins during maceration.
