Another day, another celebrity rosé, this time courtesy of actor Jonathan Bennett, the hunky heartthrob from the 2004 film, “Mean Girls.”
Bennett recently released two Mean Girls-inspired wines, “Wednesday Rosé,” a blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Zinfandel, and “I’m a Red…Duh,” a blend of Syrah and Zinfandel, Delish reports. The wines were released on April 1, 2019 in celebration of the 2004 film’s 15th anniversary, and are on sale now from online wine retailer Nocking Point.
Both blends were produced by winemaker Scot Bilbro.
The names cleverly draw inspiration from “Mean Girls” movie quotes: “On Wednesdays we wear pink,” and “I’m a mouse, duh.” (You had to be there.)
Pink wine isn’t Bennett’s first foray into the culinary world. He’s also hosted the Food Network series “Halloween Wars” and “Cake Wars,” and released a “Mean Girls”-inspired cookbook, “The Burn Cookbook,” with celebrity chef Nikki Martin in 2018.
As for the wines, “I don’t even care what they taste like—I need both bottles ASAP,” Maya McDowell writes in Delish.
We don’t necessarily disagree, but for $52 per pair of bottles (you can order the wine in sets of two, three, six, or 12), we’d love to fetch a sample first.
