On Jimmy Fallon, Sting Talks Winning the Celebrity War of White Wines - Mark Oldman Virtual Tastings

With celebrity wines gaining plenty of attention of late, wine expert, author, and tv host Mark Oldman wanted to determine which star’s beverage was the best, and hosted the first ever virtual “Celebrity War of the White Wines" With 386 households logged in via Zoom, Oldman instructed the group on how to evaluate white wine and then presented the contenders. Under scrutiny were five celebrity white wines by Dave Matthews, Zac Brown, Cameron Diaz, Lisa Vanderpump, and Sting. (Drew Barrymore’s Carmel Road Chardonnay was disqualified before the event as the actress is no longer associated with the label.) Attendees purchased the wines in advance of the tasting. The competition comes on the heels of Oldman’s “Celebrity Rosé Deathmatch,” in which Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s wine was voted top rosé. The results for best celebrity wine white were as follows: 1] tie) The Dreaming Tree Chardonnay 2018 (Dave Matthews) (co-winner) (26%) 1] tie) Il Palagio Roxanne Toscana Bianco 2018 (Sting) (co-winner) (26%) 3] Vanderpump Chardonnay 2018 (Lisa Vanderpump) (20%) 4] Z. Alexander Brown Uncaged Chardonnay 2017 (Zac Brown) (16%) 5] Avaline White Blend (Cameron Diaz) (14%) The survey also revealed: The next celebrity wine competition, the first-ever "Celebrity War of the Red Wines," happens Wednesday, October 28th at 8pm. Facing off are wines by Snoop Dogg, actor Kyle MacLachlan, NFL great Charles Woodson, NBA great Dwayne Wade, reality star and entrepreneur Lisa Vanderpump, and NFL great John Elway.
