Newman's Own Is Out With Wine Line

  • January 31, 2008
Newman's Own, the brand created by actor Paul Newman, is out with wins, a 2006 California Chardonnay and a 2006 California Cabernet Sauvignon.

The high-end wines are crafted from select grapes from California's premiere coastal vineyards, including Napa, Sonoma and San Luis Obispo counties.

In classic Newman's Own style, the labels feature Newman's signature face with a play on his most famous role as Butch in "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid." A cowboy hat, like the one Newman wore for much of the 1969 movie, pops off the top of the Chardonnay label, as does a bowler hat on the Cabernet label, giving a nod to another legendary hat donned by Butch.

Newman worked closely with the Rebel Wine Co., a collaboration of Three Thieves and Trinchero Family Estates. The wines have a suggested retail price of $16 per bottle, and are available nationally.
