San Diego (PRWEB) January 17, 2013
Andaz San Diego has taken celebrity sightings to the next level with the addition of a red carpet collection of celebrity wines in the luxury hotel’s Andaz Wine Bar. From Drew Barrymore’s Pinot Grigio to musical group Train’s Petite Sirah, a bevy of celebrity juice has found a home in Andaz’ interactive wine dispensing machines, which can stock up to 88 different bottled wines at one time.
The addition of celebrity wines in the Andaz Wine Bar is a business move reflecting a changing culture of consumerism. While celebrities have long placed their names on various products, recent times have brought forth a rush of celebs passionate and eager to create quality wines that all levels of oenophiles can enjoy. As such, their wines have become more than recognizable names on wines of mass market quality. Andaz San Diego’s new addition will allow guests to taste these A-list labels for themselves.
“As a favorite hotel and entertainment choice for celebrities, Andaz San Diego is excited to share the celebrity experience with our guests and give them an opportunity to drink with the stars,” said Rusty Middleton, general manager of Andaz San Diego. “We’ve created a chic and affordable way for consumers to interact with some of their favorite musicians, actors and sports legends through these exciting wines.”
While Andaz San Diego’s signature Star, Cabana and Sweet suites have played temporary home to stars such as Daniel Krieg, now starring in the blockbuster Skyfall, Adam Levine, Robert Downey, Jr., Olivia Wilde and others, the new collection of celebrity wines will provide more permanent placement for celebrity names such as:
- Drew Barrymore – Barrymore, Pinot Grigio 2011 (Italy)
- Ernie Els – Ernie Els, Big Easy White 2011 (South Africa)
- Ratt – Kristian Story, RATT n’ ROLL “Body Talk” Chardonnay 2010 (Sonoma Coast)
- Arnold Palmer – Arnold Palmer, Chardonnay 2009 (Central Coast)
- Francis Ford Coppola – Francis Ford Coppola, Director’s Cut Pinot Noir 2009 (Russian River Valley)
- Dave Matthews – The Dreaming Tree, Crush, Red Blend 2010 (Alexander Valley)
- Dick Vermeil – Vermeil Wines, XXXIV Red Blend 2008 (Calistoga)
- Train – Drops of Jupiter, Petite Sirah Blend 2011 (California)
