Nothing goes better with the summer season than a glass of wine. That's why Mary J. Blige teamed up with Fantinel Winery to unveil Sun Goddess Wines, an exclusive collection of limited-edition wines.

The Sun Goddess collection features an Italian Pinot Grigio Ramato and an Italian Sauvignon Blanc. The "Sun Goddess" name was inspired by Blige's powerful childhood memories with her mother and an endless love for the warmth of the sun.

“A dear friend introduced me to Marco Fantinel referring to him as the producer of the best Pinot Grigio in the world. After walking through the vineyards and tasting with the Fantinel family, I felt extremely connected to the place, and more importantly, the people,” said the Grammy winner in a press statement. “In that moment, I felt the same magical energy I have long tried to capture from the sun and knew this was an incredible opportunity to partner with someone who shared that passion and together we could try to create something that evoked that feeling.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Mary on these exquisite wines,” company CEO Marco Fantinel mirrored. “She is an icon whose creativity, passion and strength has driven her to unparalleled success in all her endeavors. From day one, it was clear she shares our philosophy for producing wines of the highest quality, authentic expressions of our land, dedication and craftsmanship, and we could not think of a better partner and collaborator to bring customers these beautiful new wines.”

Both wines in the Sun Goddess Collection have a suggested retail price of $19.99 and are available today for pre-sale nationwide on Wine.com and for purchase in New York and New Jersey through New York-based distributor Verity. Beginning in August, Sun Goddess wines will be available for purchase in-stores nationwide through exclusive importer, Trinity Beverage Group.
