Do you dream about having wine night with your favorite celebrity? We're right there with you. While we can't do much for you in the scheduling department, we can help out with a close second: celebrity-owned wine brands.

We did a little digging and found some surprising household names on vino labels. A few of the brands actually score pretty high with wine experts, too, while others have us wondering if these actors should maybe stick to their day jobs.
Some of the A-list oenophiles use their status to hawk their brands, and others stay a little more quiet about their side hustles. From family wineries to labels that might be straight up fictitious, we've found 10 celebrities who've tried their hands at stomping grapes. Cheers!

Drew Barrymore partnered with Carmel Road Wineries to produce a pinot grigio and a rosé. She got into the business in 2011 because she is "deeply passionate" about wine, she says on the brand's website, and has been involved in the process every step of the way. Carmel Road also sells Drew's Blend, a pinot noir.

The actual wine has received mixed reviews. Though it won gold at the prestigious Le Challenge International du Vin in France, BuzzFeed rated it a "Drink — Only in Case of Emergency."

Dave Matthews purchased Blenheim Farm in 1999 in order to preserve the property's historical significance. He soon decided to restore its original function as a vineyard, and is in the process of renovating the farm. Blenheim is less of a business venture and more of a hobby for Matthews, who has always loved good food and good wine.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are the celebs behind Miraval Provence — a light rosé. The couple purchased the 150 acre Chateau Miraval vineyard in the South of France for $60 million in 2008.

And apparently that investment is paying off: According to Vanity Fair, the first 6,000 bottle run back in 2013 sold out in just five hours. The wine is known for its pretty color and interesting bottle, but is actually a decent drink, receiving a 90 from Wine Spectator.

Lil Jon supposedly got into the wine-making business in 2008, but his wine must not have made it big, because it’s a little hard to track down in 2016. The label, appropriately named The Little Jonathan Winery, is not the rapper’s first venture into the beverage world: Lil Jon released Crunk!!! the energy drink in 2004, based on his first true hit, "Crunk Juice."

The rapper's collection supposedly includes chardonnay and merlot, but due to a suspiciously blank Facebook page, we're not sure if Little Jonathan Wines are, or ever were, actually available.

We can't tell you about the availability of this wine or if it actually exists because we can't find it. Anywhere.
