Celebrity brands and corporate giants add star power to private label wines
Implications - Both corporations and celebrities are branding their own wine. The last few years have triggered dozens of celebrity-branded wines, including bottles from Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and Martha Stewart. On the corporate front, wines have been branded by companies as diverse as Harley Davidson and Microsoft. The concept of celebrity or corporate branding has a double impact: the product benefits from association with a well-known celebrity or corporation; and the celebrity/corporation benefits from association with whatever experience is had through use or consumption of the product.
