West Coast rap legend Snoop Dogg is trying his hand at the same popular industry JAY-Z and Diddy have launched successful brands in. A growing member of the food industry, he’s partnered up with winemaker 19 Crimes to release his very own alcoholic beverage line.
Snoop Dogg Pours Up With 19 Crimes
This week, Snoop Dogg broke the massive news to the world about his new wine. His signature line will be affordable and a blend of red wines. He also spoke about his partnership in a press release.
The Napa-based brand 19 Crimes—part of Australia’s Treasury Wine Estates (TWE)— has announced a multi-year partnership with the multi-talented celebrity. The deal is set to kick off this summer with their debut release, Snoop Cali Red. Billed as the brand’s first California wine, the red blend features 65-percent Petite Syrah, 30- percent Zinfandel, and 5-percent Merlot, and is reportedly slated to sell for $12 per bottle.

“I’ve been a fan of this wine and I’m excited to unveil my ‘Snoop Cali Red’ this summer and share the experience with all my fans. It’s one of the most successful brands in the market, so I’m more than eager to bring this collaboration to the world!” – Snoop Dogg
Earlier this year, Snoop collaborated with breakfast and coffee giant Dunkin’ Donuts. The powerhouses came together for a limited run of breakfast sandwiches.
“New this month, Snoop Dogg is back at it again droppin’ a menu hack like it’s hot. Introducing The Beyond D-O-Double G Sandwich! Inspired by Snoop Dogg’s passion for plant-based protein and love of glazed donuts, Dunkin’ and Snoop have come together to serve an exclusive, limited-time only spin on the Beyond Sausage Sandwich. The Beyond D-O-Double G Sandwich is available for just one week only and features a Beyond Breakfast Sausage™ patty with egg and cheese, served on a sliced glazed donut.” (Dunkin’ Donuts)
