Jon Bon Jovi reinvents himself by collaborating with French winemaker Gérard Bertrand for a new rosé wine!

 

Is there anything Bon Jovi can’t do? Actor and iconic rock star, Jon Bon Jovi, is now part of the wine industry. He and his son have teamed up with acclaimed French winemaker Gérard Bertrand to create Diving into Hampton Water, a premium rosé wine.

 

Father and Son Rosé Project, Diving into Hampton Water

The idea to create the Diving into Hampton Water label was strongly motivated by Bon Jovi’s son, Jesse Bongiovi, who also played a large part in its creation. The Bongiovi family, who are also rosé enthusiasts, were inspired to create a rosé wine “emblematic of a bon vivant lifestyle” to capture their summers spent in the Hamptons, sipping what Jesse had dubbed “Hampton Water.” The father-son duo joined forces with industry expert, Gérard Bertrand, to produce a laid-back rosé, reminiscent of the easy-going ways of the Hamptons and the South of France.
