Well, they say when you go into business, you should go into a field you know.
And Ramona Singer definitely knows wine. The most unstable of the Real Housewives of New York City cast members – outside of crazy Kelly – Ramona is probably seen with more than one glass in hand every episode. And now, she’s set to become her own supplier.
Ramona Singer, the perky blond cast member, will be launching her own Pinot Grigio wine brand, Luxist has learned.
Singer’s love for Pinot Grigio is well-known to viewers. Indeed, in nearly every episode of the reality television show (aired on the Bravo television network), the reality star is seen sipping a glass of Pinot Grigio. Luxist got an exclusive sneak peek of the unofficial rendition of her simple, yet elegant wine label.
According to inside sources, the wine is being produced in the Veneto region of Italy and will be part of Opici Wines. With 50 brands in its portfolio from such countries as France, Chile, Italy, Spain, South Africa and the United States, Opici Wines is an experienced and highly reputable player in the wine business. Ramona Singer Pinot Grigio will hit retail shelves in January 2011 will be priced at approximately $14.99. It will be represented nationally through Opici’s distributor network covering close to 50 states.
Oh, this is going to make for such great TV. We’ll buy a bottle just for that. If Ramona leaves any for the rest of us. One thing we can say about Ramona: she knows how to keep making it rain. Those K-Mart looking trinkets she hawks on HSN retail for an average $200-600.
